 Battle River-Crowfoot Member of Parliament, Damien Kurek, is hosting a number of drive-through Canada Day celebrations.
    MP Kurek, with some of his staff, along with other local dignitaries, will be handing out ice cream sandwiches, pins, and paper flags at ‘pop-up’ drive-through locations in three communities across Battle River-Crowfoot.
    He will be through Drumheller on July 1 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on  South Railway Avenue at MLA Nate Horner’s office.
    “Because of COVID-19, Canada Day looks very different this year. With celebrations largely on hold, we were looking for a creative way to be able to celebrate our nation’s 153rd birthday while still respecting public health guidelines…. What better way than a ‘pop-up’ drive through with ice cream.”
 Other locations include Provost from  2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. in front of Crescent Point Place 4205 53 Ave, and then Camrose from  7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in front of MP Kurek’s Office, 4945 50th Street.
 All involved will be sure to respect all public health orders and guidelines. We are looking forward to showing some Canadian pride in a creative way! Follow MP Kurek’s Facebook page for updates and more information.
