The Big Country Anti-Violence Association has a consistent initiative which is the Red Rose Campaign. 

This year's campaign was held yesterday (Nov 7th).  A red rose is delivered by members of the association to businesses and churches throughout the valley as well as Delia and Morrin.

The red rose is in memory of women, children, and men in Alberta who have died as victims of domestic violence.

"We ask people to display it(the rose), for as long as it stays alive with a placard that we give them, and its just a reminder of the men, women, and children lost to domestic violence," stated the President of the Big Country Anti-Violence Association, Kristi Donison.

Over 250 roses have been delivered to businesses yesterday afternoon.

The Big County Anti-Violence Association is always looking for members.  If interested visit their website at or call Kristi Donison at 403-821-0905.
