    We hope the slide into the New Year was gentle and non-eventful for you. We look forward to 2021 with the hope of vaccines and a return to life where we will be together and enjoying family and friends again.

    We would like to thank the community for their generosity, efforts and creative ideas in seeing us through the holiday season. The lights, the volunteerism and the ice rinks are some of the examples of how creativity is alive and well in our community. Thank you to so many of our Not for Profits for all your contributions as well. We are truly blessed to have so many People, Organizations, Associations, Not for Profits, Businesses, and Government working together in Chestermere and surrounding areas.

    Armchair Travel 

    Armchair Travel is one of the most wonderful ways to look into our fantastic, vast world and learn as much as our hearts desire. We can travel to some of our favourite places without leaving home.  Through videos, pod casts, books and music and numerous other ways, we can go to places we have never seen, or only ever dreamed of. This way of travelling is a delightful pastime and is good for the imagination and soul. This form of travel at it’s best, makes us want to go and see for ourselves. After all we are curious individuals and have a thirst for knowledge!
