To end their week of Co-op Days, the Drumheller Co-op sponsored a barbeque in their parking lot on Friday, Oct. 20 in support of the Drumheller Sea Cadets.
Sub-Lieutenant Elizabeth Mundell was on hand at the event to serve up food to hungry visitors.
"Co-op contacted us and offered us this opportunity and we said, 'yeah, that's great! We'll do it!'"
Co-op also set up an eating area inside the mall for visitors to warm up and enjoy their food. In exchange for grilling in the autumn weather, the group gets to keep all the money raised.
"It's Co-op Days, so Co-op has donated all of the hot dogs and the buns and all of the proceeds go to the Drumheller Sea Cadet Corps."
Mundell said the funds raised will go to a project her cadets have been pestering her about for awhile now -- forming a Sea Cadet band.
"Our band right now is just starting up, so right now we're just learning the basic music," revealed Mundell. "Every weekend we do 'O Canada' and 'God Save the Queen.' We have to do that for our parades. So, we're starting out with that and then they're going to branch out into some marching music so we can march along with the band."
While the band hopes to be ready to play at Remembrance Day events, Mundell said Nov. 11 might be coming up a bit too soon.
