On Oct. 17, several communities across
southern Alberta were affected by severe,
rapidly moving wildfires coupled with ex-

saves Jelly
Bean Dance
MIRIAM OSTERMANN
Times Associate Editor

From transformers to ghouls to prin-
cesses, several hundred children filled
Strathmore’s Civic Centre last week for
the popular Jelly Bean Dance, stressing
the demand for the event and raising
funds for a local non profit – one that
ensured the continued existence of the
family dance when it nearly faltered.
After a decade of organizing and ex-
ecuting the event, the Children’s Wish
Foundation handed the reins over to
the Growing Families Society which
couldn’t bear to lose the event in the
community. With nearly 30 volunteers
to guarantee its success, almost 300
children of all ages up to Grade 6 came
dressed in their costumes with almost
160 adults in tow.
“It was such a great community event
that we didn’t want to see it disappear,”
said Margo Sevcik, president of the
Growing Families Society for East Rural
Counties.
“It was a really fun night. The kids
had a blast and I was so impressed
with the costumes that were there and
the effort that people went to. It was
fantastic.”
The Growing Families Society is com-
prised of three programs: Growing Op-
portunities, Bridging the Gap and 5 for
Life. Over the recent years, a waning
economy and the restructuring of the
Family and Community Support Servic-
es between the Town and Strathmore
and Wheatland County meant the orga-
nization was cash-strapped and expe-
riencing loss of funding. Although the
organization’s main fundraiser, a family
dance, will commemorate its third year
this spring, the $2,000 collected at the
Jelly Bean Dance on Oct. 20 will aid in
the operations of their three programs.
“To make money is fantastic, but we
really wanted it to be about giving back
to the community and supporting fami-
lies, and giving families an affordable
night out that they can do together,”
said Sevcik.
“A big part of it, too, is to help people
be aware of who the Growing Families
Society is and that we’re in the com-
munity. We’re supporting people who
are at risk, or who just need a little bit
of help up, or need some information
so that everyone in our community can
thrive.”
Sevcik added the organization plans
to continue the event in the future. She
encourages anyone interested in help-
ing plan the event to contact the Grow-
ing Families Society.

Attendance more than doubled for
a colossal turnout at the Strathmore &
District Chamber of Commerce Small
Business Week awards last week, as an
unprecedented amount of nominations
trickled in to recognize local enterpris-
es.
Over 140 people attended the event –
reaching capacity – where the chamber
honoured five local businesses follow-
ing nearly 60 nominations.
The organization presented four
awards to members or non-members,
and one chamber’s choice award to a
member.
Enviro Windows accepted the New
Business Award, while Gregory Har-
riman & Associates received the Com-
munity Spirit Award. The Customer Ser-
vice Excellence Award was presented to
OK Tire, the Rural Business Award was
handed to Poplar Bluff Organic Farm,
and the Chamber of Commerce Choice
award was awarded to ATB Financial at
the Strathmore Civic Centre on Oct. 19.
“Given the quality of the nomina-
tions … anybody nominated should
have been feeling pretty good about
themselves because there was a tough
competition and to come out as win-
ner overall would be pretty impressive,”
said Strathmore & District Chamber of
Commerce Executive Director Shelley
Toderian.
“People need to be recognized and
they need to celebrate. We’ve made it
through a difficult time and these com-
panies are still thriving or managing to
pull through. We’d like everybody to go
home with a prize, just because they’re
that good.”
In accordance with the anniversary of
Canada’s 150 years since Confederation,
the chamber partnered with the West-
ern District Historical Society which, in
turn, presented three Western Histori-
cal Society awards. ATB Financial Chief
Economist Todd Hirsch acted as key-
note speaker.
Several years ago, the chamber strug-
gled to survive. Over the last few years,
the chamber has seen an increase in ac-
tivity and grown to over 100 members
strong.
“I’m really happy,” said Toderian. “I
can’t explain the reason why we had
such a great turnout but I’m really glad
we did, and I hope everybody enjoyed
it.”
