NeighbourGOOD Trailer rolls into Milk River

A new trailer to help connect families in smaller southern Alberta communities has now made its way to Milk River.

The non-profit group Family and Community Support Services hosted the NeighbourGOOD Trailer event on Thursday afternoon.

There are things like games and family entertainment located inside the trailer to enjoy.

Staff with FCSS told us this is a great way to get communities together, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We thought that this trailer would be a good way to reconnect neighbors, get people meeting each other, have fun with one another, socialize, build their social networks within their smaller communities. There’s lots of folks that are actually moving to small communities since they’ve been able to work remotely after the pandemic. So that’s kind of nice that this will help people get to know each other and see that their communities are lively and full of fun and family friendly stuff to do. So, yeah, it’s definitely really important to connect post pandemic,” says Kaitlynn Weaver, the outreach services supervisor with FCSS.

The trailer was funded by the Community Priorities Fund grant from the Community Foundation of Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta.
