Saturday, July 24 dawned bright and sunny – a great day for special events at Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village!!
At 10:00 am the First Student Canada bus rolled up to the curb in front of Pioneer Place. Eighteen eager gardeners found their seats and we were off to see seven yards and gardens in our community. The morning yards were lovely and all had a great time. The bus came back to Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village for lunch catered and donated by the Bloomin Inn. Our guest speaker Joni Macfarland taught our group some of the uses and qualities of herbs zoned for our area. The bus loaded up and we were off to view another four yards. Pincher Creek has such beautiful yards we should all be proud.
While the gardeners were viewing the flowers, a wedding was going on in the Father Lacombe Hermitage. A couple from Rimbey said their vows while their friends and family looked on. The group then enjoyed a catered reception (Simply Catering) and an enjoyable evening here at the Village.
Saturday evening also brought our local Creek Cruzers car club after their Show & Shine day at the Town Office grounds. About 40 Cruzers set up and enjoyed a BBQ and some cool drinks after their busy day.
It was a great day as you can see from the photos! Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village is a multi-use community facility. Family events, reunions, meetings and workshops – we have the space and venue to help you with your event!
