THE CREMONA COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT SITE
The Cremona Community Engagement Site is in the process of putting together some online class content as well as a phone tree for seniors who are currently in isolation.
Just a reminder, we are sending out daily content of online classes for seniors who are stuck at home right now. If you are a senior (55+) or know a senior who would be interested, please send me an email address and I will add you to the list! We have some great content provided by some wonderful presenters, all for FREE! Alternatively, if you know of a senior who does not have internet, please send me their phone number and we can add them to our phone tree so they can get phone calls to check on them and have a phone visit with one of our volunteers. If you or someone you know are interested in this service please email email@example.com or leave a message at 403-377-4277.
A few words...
Are we so quaint & tiny we go unnoticed? Is there a black hole we sneak into off Highway 22 North as we turn the 8 km to get to our little treasure?
The answer is yes to all. We are a well kept secret that is loved by those day trippers who know, and guarded by the few who can call it home. We get to live in a postcard and in the winter in a snow globe.
Our '4-way stop' is historic, rustic, thoughtful and slow.
All these things are what we enjoy the most about it, and we promise it's what you will notice too.
Life in a small town means you know your neighbors so everyone is friendlier and more invested. Our businesses are small and run by families who believe in community in all sense of the word. We have an amazing golf course, hardware store, general store, antique & reclaimed furniture boutique, gift shop, Italian restaurant, a Meadery, and adorable events church, a library, a western saloon famous for its tradition Wednesday wing nights, a rustic liquor store, a calendar of events like the Celtic-Folk Festival, Water Valley Days, Art Shows and our picturesque Water Valley Rodeo. William J. Bagnall Wilderness Park, a swimming hole with a rope swing, endless Instagram worthy hiking trails, and sunsets that can knock your socks off.
Seriously, if you have never come, it's time to get out here...
