The Strathcona Christie Aspen Community Association (SCA), together with the Signal Hill, Coach Hill/Patterson Heights, Springbank Hill, Cougar Ridge/Westhills Community Associations planned a Canada 150 celebration – “150 Celebration on the Hill”. The event was held on September 2, 2017. The event was designed to celebrate Canada’s 150 year of confederation and encompass: diversity and inclusion, Indigenous groups, youth engagement and environmental stewardship. Some activities that were planned were: multicultural entertainment stage, children’s art show, lego competition, two family fun areas, food, community open house and an amazing touch football game hosted by Bret and Dallas Hart with team t-shirts printed and donated by Sharpshooter Funding.
We were honored to have Bret Hart attend our event as celebrity guest speaker. Bret spoke about living in the community and what it meant to him, being a Canadian. Bret was generous to sign autographs and took pictures with his fans that came in droves to meet our Wrestling Legend and community member in person!
Bret and his family then headed to the field to officiate and coach a youth touch football game that included a Pink and Black team, with the pink team being the victors!
Our team can’t thank Bret, Dallas and Steven, enough for volunteering their time to make this celebration one our residents, volunteers and vendors will never forget.
