Parade Of Programs Kick Starts Fall And Winter Season

Pipestone Flyer

On Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014 the Wetaskiwin Drill Hall was a flurry of activity as community groups representing athletic clubs, arts, culture and educational opportunities were displaying their products and services.

On the other side of the table, people were signing up to participate in them. The event has gained the reputation as a one-stop shopping opportunity for the entire family to see what new programs and services are being offered, and to register for clubs, programs and activities and learn about the upcoming fall and winter activities and programs.

Charleen Schnick, Executive Director, Community Learning Council commented on the event. “I would like to thank all those who participated in the Parade of Programs last night. Especially the sea of volunteers that turned out to take registrations, or share information about their organization. It is a big, busy event where you can register for programs, talk to instructors, find out information and watch demonstrations. The place just hums.”

One mom who has been coming for years, first with her children in tow, and now in a professional capacity said, “The Parade of Programs kick starts the fall season.”

The Parade of Programs has been running for more than 35 years and seems just as popular as ever.

The annual fall Parade of Programs is where the Community Learning Council launches their Fall and Winter Program Guide. Schnick commented on the sixty-four page Program Guide that is produced in cooperation with the City of Wetaskiwin. “We are working with the City of Wetaskiwin to promote activities and events in Wetaskiwin and region. Anyone wanting to become more active this fall and winter will likely find an activity suited to them in the Guide.”

The Program Guide provides detailed information about courses and programs, the instructors, cost, dates and location. For those that missed the Parade of Programs you can find contact information for most programs in the Guide available around town or view at www.clcwetaskiwin.ca and click on the Program Guide tab. For more information call 780-361-6241 or email: info@clcwetaskiwin.ca.
