Our Summer 2013 BBQ!

Buck Mountain Rural Crime Watch kicked off summer with its annual BBQ and association meeting on June 18th at the Winfield Agriplex. We had a fantastic turnout with more than 100 attendees – luckily the rain and hail we were expecting never touched down.

We signed up a bunch of new members, gave out more of our signature yellow signs and made sure everyone in attendance was well fed. After dinner Mike Ryan, CEO, Founder and Program Director from Clean Scene – Network for Youth (www.cleanscene.ca), made a presentation to the group. He spoke about the Clean Scene organization and its mission to educate and inform our young people on the dangers of drugs and criminal activity. He shared some of his own life experiences as a reformed drug addict and offender.

Also in attendance was a representative from the Drayton Valley RCMP detachment.

We would like to extend a thank you to everyone that attended this event and encourage all those interested in being a part of the “Eyes & Ears of Rural Alberta” to attend our next meeting at the Buck Lake Community Hall on October 16th, 2013 at 7pm.
