Blackfalds Trivia question for the week of January 13th

The Historical Society of Blackfalds is running a Trivia contest about the history of Blackfalds.  A new question each Thursday will be available either on the Town of Blackfalds website, or you can pick it up in person at Wadey Centre.   For each correctly answered question, your name will be entered into a draw for $100 worth of gift certificates to be spent in Blackfalds at the Abbey Centre, After the Grind coffee shop or Dad’s Day Off Games and Hobbies.  You can bring your answers to the Wadey Centre any Thursday afternoon up until April 23.    If you have questions about this contest, please feel free to contact either Linda Jaffray at 403-304-7317 or Terry (Wadey) Mulrooney at 403-396-2824.
