Quonset Days an outstanding family effort

Written by

It was just supposed to be a little get together with some friends and whoever wanted to come and act as a tribute fundraiser to raise some money for the ALS Society of Alberta, but now southeastern Alberta’s Quonset Days has grown into something huge — the self-professed but very arguable “Greatest Outdoor Party on Dirt.”

Two things which are certain: small communities can accomplish big things, just ask those people in Jenner, Buffalo and the people who work with the Helicopter Air Lift Operation in southeastern Alberta. And the number 13 is not bad luck.

Swift Current swimmer Meghan Chisholm (at left) receives a donation of over $500 from Ella Toles, June 12. Chisholm is raising funds for juvenile diabetes with her solo across the English Channel in July over a distance of 34 kilometres.

The 13th annual Relay for Life in Swift Current raised over $60,000 for the fight against cancer.

Those going to the Helicopter Air Lift Operation (HALO) fundraiser June 13 in Jenner will have the opportunity to see someone on the meteoric rise.
