On Wednesday, February 11, Travel Alberta, Tourism Café and Patrice Fortin organized a dynamic evening at Fiddle River Restaurant, as part of the SHIFT Program.

Brian Lackey entertained the 35 participants with his Blues sounds, and even gave a harmonica lesson. For my part, I had the opportunity to demonstrate my painting skills, while dinner unfolded. I tried to ‘wow!’ the audience with my impressions of Tekarra Mountain as seen from the Skyline Trail, where I hiked last summer. My efforts met with success as the organizers asked to auction the piece. What impressed me the most about the evening was the positive energy of each participant and the restaurant staff.

Thank you everyone for a memorable night!
