This program is being offered by the Stettler Public Library and is free of charge.

Thanks to the library for doing this. If you have any questions, contact Gayle at the school at 403-742-5187.

We have received a lot of snow from Old Man Winter in the past week, with the temperatures dropping. If you would like your snow removed from your driveway, contact the village office or a council member, if after hours.
