COLLABORATION BUILDS BETTER COMMUNITIES

The Olds Institute partners with local groups to support the Olds Spring Fling

(OLDS, Alberta – March 24, 2016) The Olds Institute delivered a check for $ 2,500.00 to help with the expenses for Spring Fling 2016 at a recent organizing committee meeting in Olds. As a community partner for the fundraiser, the Olds Institute contribution will help make the evening a memorable event while still ensuring that 100% of ticket sales are given to the four non-profit groups taking part in the community wide fundraising event. Greg MacIntyre, an Olds Institute board member and volunteer committee member for Spring Fling, presented the check to Hugh Bodmer and Tracy Gardner, co-chairs of the Olds Spring Fling organizing committee.  

The Olds Spring Fling is a shining example of many people from the community working together in collaboration towards a common goal. In this case by assisting local not-for-profit groups raise funds and celebrating the coming of spring as a community. Spring Fling is spearheaded by The Kiwanis Club of Olds, The Olds Regional Exhibition and the Rotary Club of Olds but are also assisted by many partners in the community including the Olds Institute.

The Olds Institute was formed in 2001 by community leaders who realized they could achieve more together than they could apart. It is governed by a volunteer board of directors representing their four founding members and includes members of the community at large.
