Event Date: 
Friday, July 8, 2016 -
7:15am to 9:30am
Description: 

Stampede Prelude Parade is a fundraiser for C.F( Cystic Fibrosis), Kinsmen National Fundraiser- we drive coincatcher wagons down the Parade route calling out for the spectators to throw loose change!! We also use the Prelude as an oppurtunity to showcase some Wheels prizes and invite the people to the grounds. We have a CF Youth representative as marshall and several parents helping to gather the change. The KCC is required to provide 15- 20 Kin, wives or kids to help drive floats and pick-up change! This annual event provides approx. $6500 - $10,000 dollars for CF. Plus the KCC receives alot of exposure in downtown Calgary. This year might be a record setting fundraiser as Mr. Don Hewitt has set up a Text to Donate number, new to Mile of Dimes. Coffee, water, donuts, cookies at Parade beginnig - water during the walk. PLEASE NOTE- Parade Route is NON SMOKING !!! ..

A very fulfilling work project, Frank the Senior whose yard we cleaned up, was hardly able to walk, and had a very large backyard that had been neglected for a long time! A giant thank-you to Mark.G; Matt; Glenn; Cowboy for their efforts on a holiday week-end, this was a very gratifying project, with immediate results. Tasks done by KCC volunteers were; weeding pathes, gardens, trimming grass, mowing lawn, raking up leaves, pruning bushes & trees. We accomplished alot in just 3 hours. Extra thanks to Matt & Glenn for bring bags of grass/branches to landfill. Fellowship was at Woody's Taphouse- (Rickards Red & Nachos).

New venue, Stampede Agrium was stretched to the limits trying to accomodate all the Ag Exibitors, livestock & huge crowds ! Started slow as people took alittle while to adjust to Aggie Days being on 2 levels. Saturday was busy as 17,122 children& parents came thru the doors. Thanks to Don Hewitt, Andrew Sick, The Arkes Family for making Saturday a big success. Sunday was much the same crowds arrived earlier though smaller numbers & fewer strollers,( 11,488) unofficial attendance. There was NO support from the KCC on Sunday, i was left to recruit older teens from various other Ag Exibitors to pull it off. I left Sunday after tear down with my ears ringing with the question from senior Ag Committee staff- Why is your Club not here?? We had great exposure on 4 venues - Red Barn Stage, Tails & Swine Stage, the large triple bleacher Presentation Stage & Rope Making Venue- a total of 9 signs & banners identifying Kinsmen & presented by Kinsmen, and Thank-you Kinsmen banners!!!
