A Simple Request to our Membership

Following is a request recently received at the Chamber offices, please contact the undersigned with your suggestions and donations.

Highwood High School is hosting a band exchange with a school from Truro, Nova Scotia. The group of 37 students and 5 adults are arriving February 24th and leaving March 1st. Our students will travel there in April.

I am in charge of creating gift bags for these individuals. We have pins from the Province and something coming from the Town of High River. I am hoping not to fill the bags with paper they will not look at but I do think there should be some information on the town and the area, as well as the province. The group will not have lots of free time to shop in High River as they will be in band workshops both here and in Calgary as well as traveling to Edmonton and Banff.

I appreciate any suggestions you might have.

Here is the low-down on the band exchange:
George Groeneveld MLA, Mayor Emile Blokland and HHS Principal Leah Kingston will be helping to welcome the group at a luncheon being held at the school at around noon on the 24th. (We have not yet heard back from Premier Redford. On the last exchange to Truro, the Premier of Nova Scotia personally welcomed the visitors. We mentioned this in our invitation to the Premier in case she wanted to return the courtesy.)

The band teacher, Jeff Graham, from Cobequid Educational Centre in Truro, a school of 1700 students, is a former band teacher at Highwood High School. He taught with Tom Taylor, one of the current band teachers.

There are other events planned including a Dinner Danceon Feb. 25th, a supper and concert on Feb. 27th and a farewell breakfast on March 1st. We have lined up some Alberta-based entertainment for our visitors including a Native drum and dance group and the Calgary Fiddlers.

Thank you for your time.
