Community Outreach Participants Win Holiday Contest


The Community Outreach Department runs a School Support Program in the Beltline area at Connaught School that provides after school support for kids aged 7-12. 

Program participants went out into their local community to learn about the meaning of community, how they can get involved and what are the needs of their community.

As part of the Lougheed House celebration this year, they held their annual gingerbread house contests with a fire hall theme.  Lougheed house and the Firefighters Museum of Calgary joined efforts for their Pomp and Circumstance exhibit.  This exhibit explores the history of Calgary fire brigade and how they have impacted the Calgary community.

Our participants worked hard on their gingerbread house during program and were given the opportunity to present their creation at the Lougheed House on November 18th 2016 to the local fire crew on site. 

Today, Lougheed House announced that the participants at the Connaught YMCA School Support program were named the winners of this year’s contest!  Their creation will be on display at the Lougheed House until January 29th 2017.

A big congratulations to our participants at the Connaught School Support program and their leaders; Owini and Wendy.
