This week has been so exciting! We have been learning so much about the Calgary Stampede, the past present and the future. I have met so many interesting people that are so passionate about the Stampede and what it stands for. One of the many things they taught about is the youth programs, I didn’t realize that there were so many! I am learning just how diverse, yet unique and beneficial the Calgary Stampede really is to the community.
One of the highlights of the week was the “Giddy Up Gala”. The whole banquet theme was 50′s Hollywood Stars, so it was so fun to dress up and “walk the red carpet”! This function is an annual function held by the Queens Alumni to raise money for children with special needs. Gord Bramford had a special screening of his music video that was filmed with some of the children that were at the function whom I was privileged to meet. If I had to explain it in one word it would be heart-warming.
Our next trip might not be as warm, nor as glamorous, but it’ll be FUN!! We are heading to the Canadian Finals Rodeo in Edmonton!! Ya-Hoo!
Hope to meet you there!
