What is the Community Spotlight page all about?

Our community has demonstrated tremendous strength and resilience over the last month. Since the start of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Coaldale community has taken part in some amazing community-led efforts that deserve to be showcased! The Community Spotlight page will serve as a hub for positive community news, initiatives, and activities throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Together, let's spread some positivity to ensure that Coaldale remains the vibrant and prosperous community we know and love!

April 7, 2020: Easter Decorations for Everyone!

As a way to spread some Easter love and cheer, Cheri Donna & her crew spent the day colouring over 40 paper eggs to be dropped off at the Long Term Care Centre for Easter!

The Coaldale Library has graciously agreed to laminate the eggs for them, free of charge.

A special thank you and shout out to Cheri Donna & her family for this awesome Easter initiative!
