GET TOGETHER - June is Block Party Month and City officials are encouraging the community to enter for a chance to win some cash to help throw the party.

June is Block Party month, and the City of Lacombe is excited to announce that for 2017, they will be giving away $100 gift cards to Lacombe CO-OP to help purchase party supplies.

Register your June Block Party during the month of May to be entered for a chance to win. Draws will be made on June 1. Go to www.lacombe.ca/blockparty to download your registration package.

“Block Parties are a great way for neighbours to meet, build friendships and create a sense of belonging to a community,” said Block Party Program Coordinator Sonya Beauclair. “When neighbours get to know one another, they are more likely to look out each other and the neighbourhood, which improves safety and can help decrease crime.”

The Block Party program is made possible thanks to the generous support of Central Alberta CO-OP and Lacombe Servus Credit Union.
