Saturday's Macoun Days raised more funds towards their future Spray Park.

Mayor of Macoun Glenys Baerg recounted a great day, "Oh, It was awesome it started with a pancake breakfast in the morning from 8:30 to 10 am. And then we had a parade that was far more extensive than last year. It was awesome, we had 27 floats in total and then the afternoon was just games with the kids. We had a few trade shows, concession in the rink, we had movies playing for the kids to try and keep them out of the heat. And then we ended the night with the cabaret and wonderful fireworks they turned out to be better than last year we were so impressed with the Carols out of Beinfait who put them on for us."

Glenys added, "We were raising money for our Splash Park, Crescent Point Energy already donated ten thousand dollars towards this. We have about another $20,000 to go to get it up, in the ground and get it running. We raised another, just under $2700 going towards that."

Mayor of Macoun added another fundraiser in the works, "Yes we're actually starting another raffle in August and then our next big event is going to be, were just in the beginning process we want to do a Zombie walk that will end in a cabaret at the hall in Macoun. I believe its going to be the Saturday before Halloween."
