Here comes the Whoop Up Days BBQ!
Yesterday was our final planning meeting for the Whoop Up Days BBQ. This is an annual event put on by the businesses in Scenic Plaza plus a few others, making it a neighborhood bbq that the city is invited to.
We do our bbq every year following the parade, on the Galt patio (or indoors in the weather is poor). We also set up some seating inside for those who prefer air conditioning.
Thanks to the wonderful support of Thom and Pyramid Entertainment, we get to listen some country and western music. Green Acres kitchen staff cook up beef on a bun, beans, and everyone gets pop, for only $3.
Galt volunteers help with face painting and bussing, as well as assisting those who are using walkers or have strollers, with carrying their food to a table.
We are really excited that this year the money raised will allow seniors that live in the Green Acres complexes next to the Galt, access to our exhibits and programs over the next year!
Mark your calendars - Tuesday August 24th from 11:30 am - 1:30 pm at the Galt Museum.....$3/person!
Thank you so much to Servus Credit Union, Servus Insurance Services, CBI (Canadian Back Institute), Tim Hortons, Green Acres, and Pyramid Entertainment for all your work in putting this event on, and for assisting our neighbors to be able to spend time discovering all the treasures that our museum and it's staff hold. We are always thrilled when we can find ways to share with more people who may not be able to normally access our facility!
Oh and we do have passes at the public library and regional libraries ready to sign out, so if you have a library card and live in Southern Alberta, head to your library branch where you can sign out a pass to use for admission to the Galt, at no charge!
