President’s Message – February 2018

 A few celebrations for February are Feb 2 Ground Hog Day, Feb 14 Valentine’s Day, Feb 15 National Flag of Canada Day and Feb 19 Alberta Family Day. I hope all your families have enjoyed the deep freeze we endured with respite on its heels of warm Chinooks. That’s the best and toughest part of being a Calgarian is our weather and temperature swings.
