We gave the Daysland Alberta playground fund a donation of $1000.00 for this year & the 2 other groups selected ( Be Brave Ranch & Autism Edmonton) will be given their donation from us, once the “tally” from calendar sales is completed.

These are 14 month calendars from November 2018 through to January 2020. Get yours soon!!
