Thank you to everyone who came to my Stampede Party at Craft Beer Market this past week! It was good to see old and new friends. After months of door knocking, it was good to take a break and catch up with everyone! Thank you to Len Webber, MP; Derek Fildebrandt, MLA; Prab Gill, MLA; and Prasad Panda, MLA for stopping by and showing their support. Finally thank you to Craft for all your work that helped make this a success!
On Canada Day I attended a busy event in Chinatown to celebrate Canada 150 with thousands of Calgarians, and then I went to Edgemont to celebrate Canada Day with over 2,000 residents for a BBQ hosted by our outstanding MP for Calgary – Nose Hill, Michelle Rempel! Thank you to all the volunteers who made this event a success. There were lots of familiar faces, and was a great event for the kids.
With Stampede upon us I will be at a lot of events in the Ward and hope to talk to as many residents as I can. There are a few events going on in the Ward: TGCA is having a Stampede Breakfast on July 8th from 9 – 11AM; Triwood July 9th 9-12PM for their Stampede Breakfast; and Huntington Hills Stampede Breakfast on July 15th 9-11AM. I will also be in the Stampede Parade on Friday! The route has been reversed this year, and the Stampede Grounds will be open for free entry after the Parade ends until 1:30PM!
Thank you for all the support I have received these past few weeks from meeting so many of you at events, and all the encouragement at the doors, it is truly humbling to have your continued support!
Finally, Happy Independence Day to our American friends, and I hope everyone has a great Stampede!
