Help Make Canada’s 150th Birthday Special- Support the Fireworks!

Published

1 minute read

It’s Canada’s 150th Birthday on July 1st and there are some great plans for the Fireworks display at Bower Ponds.  

The Red Deer Cultural Heritage Society set a goal this year to raise $30,000 so that we can all enjoy a SPECTACULAR fireworks display on this, our 150th birthday. Because money is tight and the corporate community is struggling to fund the many good initiatives already in place throughout our region, the group has been challenged to find the money elsewhere.  You can help support the effort through a recently launched Go Fund Me Campaign. 

Your donation will bring some real joy and excitement to this year’s 150th Canada Day Celebrations. Hats off to some of the great community builders who have already stepped up to help out. Learn more about them by clicking on the links below.
