Paint the town red and get caught doing something great for the community.

The United Way Red Patrol is coming to Ponoka on Oct. 16 in hopes of nabbing someone or something displaying the colour red.

The event is geared to show support for the United Way and its agencies and Ponoka hosts some of these organizations as well.

The Ponoka Youth Centre, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, mental health services and Ponoka Rising Sun Clubhouse Society are some of United Way’s member agencies.

As part of United Way Day the Red Patrol will be circling the town trying to catch people wearing the bright colour or businesses/organizations displaying red.

People who are caught not wearing red may be fined $5 by the Red Patrol. The Red Patrol may consist of anyone including a United Way board member, media, the mayor, or a surprise guest.

The hope is to showcase businesses, schools, etc and to have fun and fundraise for the United Way.

Some ideas for going red include dressing in red, hosting a red tag sale, dying your hair red, etc.

Whatever you decide to do, wear it well and have fun.
