Atlas Coal Mine receives $500,000 for Tunnel Vision

    Drumheller-Stettler MLA and Minister of Infrastructure, Jack Hayden, and Minister of Culture and Community Spirit, Lindsay Blackett, were at the national historic site, with a number of other Atlas supporters for the presentation. The funds came from the Major Community Facilities Enhancement Program, and are on top of funds already committed from the Alberta Historic Resources Foundation.

Happy Halloween!
