Salvation Army kettles return

DSC 0435

Nothing says the holidays are approaching than the sight of the red Salvation Army Christmas Kettles and the annual campaign kicked off locally on Friday, November 19. The campaign faced challenges in 2020 as COVID-19 safety protocols meant the kettles had to be left unmanned. This year the volunteers are back, and kettles will once again be outfitted with electronic devices to accept touchless, electronic donations; the Salvation Army has again set a goal of raising $37,000 with funds raised going to support programs throughout the year. Kettles can be found throughout the community at Freson Bros, Walmart, Extra Foods, and Ace Liquor. At the Christmas Kettle kick-off were (l-r) Rotarian Helen Peers, Christmas Kettle volunteer Danny Worman, Salvation Army Community and Family Services coordinator Amanda Courtenay, Town of Drumheller Deputy Mayor Lisa Hansen-Zacharuk, Freson Bros store manager Dale Goulder, and Salvation Army Majors Robert and Laura Burrell.
