CBC’s Live Right Now filming at WLD on Sunday

    A rally is being held this Sunday as CBC will be at the World’s Largest Dinosaur filming for a segment of their Live Right Now program.
    Drumhealthier, a local group who has been promoting healthy activities in the valley, has garnered the attention of the segment's producers. The group is asking anyone who participants in activities such as yoga, sports, walking groups, etc. to attend the World’s Largest Dinosaur at 1:00 p.m. this Sunday.
    “Come out and show how active Drumheller is,” says Drumhealthier’s Tara Semchuk. “They want to feature us and our Drumhealthier Challenge. Let’s show Canada what we have.”
    The group was inspired by the prospect of CBC’s health show Village on a Diet filming their second season in Drumheller. This rally and a display of the active mindedness of Drumheller may help bring the show here if their season is renewed by the network.
    Live Right Now is a national initiative designed to inspire Canadians to join together and change the health of this country. The idea is built around the small steps everyone can take in their life to improve their health.

Locals return from charity work in Andes of Peru


 A Drumheller couple has returned from charity work in a remote village in the mountains of Peru and say it was the experience of a life time.
    Joanne Dumaine and her husband Ray were in Pamparomas, a hilltop village in the Andes at 9,000 feet altitude with a population of 500 people. They were working with the St. James Church there, touching up furniture in school houses and preparing a small museum for the locals.
