On Tuesday, Westview Co-op donated paint to the DinoArts Association for the upkeep of the dinosaur statues around the Drumheller area. It is a very important donation as many of the dinosaurs need paint almost on an annual basis.
Federated Co-op runs a program called "Communities In Full Colour", where non-profit groups apply for a donation of paint for their community project. In 2016, DinoArts applied for the paint donation and received it. Once again this year, the group applied for the paint donation and it has once again been donated by Westview Co-op.
Courtney Bell from the DinoArts Association was impressed with the donation. "This paint will be used to paint the three new dinosaurs that are being built by Frank Hadfield, as well as maintaning some of the other dinosaurs in our community."
With the donation by Westview Co-op, it will save funds that can be used for creation of new dinosaurs in the Drumheller area. Bell is proud of her community and the businesses that support local groups within it.
