New look for Pelican Point near Bashaw

Entrance to resort area at Buffalo Lake received a small face lift for Canada 150

For anyone heading into the resort area on the north side of Buffalo Lake, the view has changed a bit.

In order to help celebrate Canada’s 150 years as a country, an idea was raised to see some flag poles set up at the entrance to Pelican Point.

Joanne Schultz brought the idea to the Pelican Point Community Association (PPCA), who in turn got a few other people involved to get the job done.

“It will be there as a permanent reminder of our good fortune and pride in being part of a great community, in a wonderful province, in the best country in the world,” said Jill Page with the PPCA.

Page added that Don Klein acted as the supervisor for the project, who got the work finished in three weeks — just in time for Canada Day — with some help from Lawrence Halpin, Ron Metro and Karen Webster.

The PPCA finished off the job by raising some new flags and hope that Pelican Point visitors will appreciate them.
