Thank you from Chinook Foundation & Diamond Willow

The Chinook Foundation and new Diamond Willow Lodge would like to thank all who helped out before, during and after our big move this past Saturday the 28th of April.  It truly took all of the families and friends, Magrath 5th ward, LDS missionaries and our staff to move all our residents and belongings in such a seamless fashion. Saturday was a great day, and now we are all settling in nicely and enjoining our new building. For those seniors over the age of 65, we still have rooms available, and we would love to have you join us. For those out in our great community that would like to come and do piano and dance recitals, or would like to share their talents, we now have a great venue to do just that.  Call us at 403-758-6866 for more information.

Thanks again, we couldn't have done it with out all of you!!

Chautauqua Snippets

This year Chautauqua will be hosting a short film contest to be known as Chautauqua Snippets. The idea behind this contest is to develop, feature, and promote talented artists, filmmakers, and social media gurus in a contest that has cash prizes. The scope of the desired snippets is left fairly broad with the theme: Southern Alberta Living. Please utilize this opportunity to let your creative juices flow. Grab a couple of friends and make a music video. Create a slideshow highlighting some of your photography. You are only limited by your own imagination.
