High River Gr. 5 Students Raising Money for Ukrainian Newcomers

SpitzeeArtwork

Shout out to students at Spitzee Elementary School in High River! When their teacher, Angela Read, told them about a family that was arriving from Ukraine and needed help getting settled, the Grade 5 students sprung into action! Everyone made beautiful pieces of art and they've put them up for auction on a public Facebook page. While they were hoping to raise about $100, they are already up over $1000! Absolutely amazing! You've got until 4:00 TODAY (June 23rd) to bid on one of the lovely pieces. Great work, Spitzee Elementary Grade 5's!

The province will continue to help you save money on gas. They’re extending the removal of the provincial sales tax on gas for the time being, which has been in place for the last few months, saving you 13 cents per litre. That’ll last until at least September. And remember those electricity rebates they promised a few months back? Those are coming into effect in July, August and September where $50 will automatically be removed from the bills of over 2 million Albertans.

While some movie theatres are announcing more fees onto the cost of movies, another chain is announcing more luxuriousness! Landmark Cinemas has unveiled their The Premiere Seats, which sound absolutely glorious! They’ll feature heated recliner seats with adjustable headrests, a coat hook AND a privacy divided between you and the person next to you. How amazing is that?! I always get so cold in movie theatres, so I love the though of heated seats!
