Culture Day celebrations not on Stettler calendar

One year after Stettler celebrated Culture Days with three days of activities on the final weekend of September, the community doesn’t plan to follow with a second year of such celebrations.

After the Stettler Steel Wheel Stampede over the Labour Day weekend promoted the culture with the energy of numerous volunteers, Stettler Regional Board of Trade decided not to pursue Culture Days.

“Organizations are welcome to host their own events,” said Aubrey Brown, executive-director of the board of trade.

As one of many communities that received funding for the campaign, Stettler staged more than 25 events, most of them poorly attended.

Brown encourages organizations to promote their events throughout the region.
