Pride Week sees new inclusive Pride Walk

In April, the new Flag, Pole Banner and Decorative Trail Policy INF-C-01 was brought forth by Drumheller Town Council, and on Sunday many people gathered to paint murals on the newly Decorative Pride Walk.
Badlands Pride Association Co-Chair, Lana Phillips, along with almost 30 community volunteers were out painting the walkway located near the Drumheller Health Centre. Local community member, Mary Sanchez, designed the mural for the Pride Association’s portion of the trail. Paint and material were donated by Westview Co-op and Canadian Tire in Drumheller.
It was not the only new mural installed on the trail near the Drumheller Health Centre. Lynn Fabrick led a group of volunteers who painted a mural representing the Every Child Matters movement.
“We appreciate all the volunteers who came out, and the support of the community for Pride Week,” Phillips tells the Mail. “It was a nice way to end the week and now it’s out there for folks to enjoy.”
This program replaces installing decorated crosswalks.IMG 2068
