Lacombe’s A Better World celebrates 29th anniversary

Lacombe international development organization invites you to attend their celebrations

On Sunday, April 7, 2019, A Better World Canada will celebrate its 29th anniversary.

They invite you to join them at the Best Western Plus in Lacombe at 4:30 p.m. as they celebrate the accomplishments of their partners, donors, and volunteers, and look forward to a better future for all. Admission is free.

For 29 years, A Better World has been partnering with its community to provide sustainable services and infrastructure in the areas of education, health, water, agriculture, and economic development in over fifteen countries. To commemorate their anniversary and the work of countless supporters, A Better World is excited to host Gail Misek as its keynote speaker of the evening.

Misek is an experienced educator from Surrey, British Columbia who has supported and travelled with A Better World for many years, focusing her efforts on helping to provide education for girls in Afghanistan. Her story is one of courage, of re-framing personal tragedy, and of working to build a more hopeful future for children in one of the world’s most dangerous places. A Better World is proud to welcome her to Lacombe to share her inspiring story.

The evening will be marked by presentations from other leaders and supporters of A Better World, reflecting on successes and milestones of the past year as well as the announcement of the organization’s annual Citizen of the Year Award. While this will be an inspiring event, A Better World hopes that it will also be a time to connect with your community, to build new relationships, and to have fun. Networking is encouraged, and refreshments will be served.

A Better World looks forward to welcoming you to its 29th Anniversary Celebration and thanks you for your support. Without a strong and compassionate community, none of these achievements would be possible.

For more information, please email erajah@abwcanada.ca or phone the A Better World office at 403-782-0325.
