This year's Winter Walk Day is being considered a success.
 
"We had a good turnout. We had about 35 people come and join us for a community walk (and) I think that was excellent," beamed Rose Poulson, Seniors Coordinator for the Town of Drumheller.
 
Both Greentree and St. Anthony's Schools participated in their own walk today and Poulson will be including their minutes and numbers into the final total. Poulson is in a friendly competition with Fort Macleod this year to see which community racks up the most minutes walking and who has the highest participation.
 
"The community with fewest participants is going to wear a Canadian flag and have to pass out 150 Timbits to people around the community," chuckled Poulson. "The community with the lowest minutes is going to sing O' Canada in front of Town Hall with a Canadian flag as well."

After the participation today, Poulson feels pretty optimistic about the wager.
 
"I'm feeling pretty confident right now. I think this community has been wonderful to support us, so I'm really hoping I'm not out there singing," laughed Poulson.
 
Despite a cold wind Wednesday afternoon, participants reported having a good time.
