ATCO Gas has been heating the homes of Albertans for 100 years and for that they are celebrating.

On June 5 ATCO Gas is holding a free community event at the Ponoka Curling Rink.

The celebrations will commence at 4:30 p.m. and conclude at 7 p.m.

Included are a community barbecue, door prizes, children’s activities and a live performance.

The play, He’s Got the Pipes will tell the history of natural gas through comedy and song and is a family performance. It’ll run 50 minutes long.

There will also be a contest to win free home heating for a year. Anyone from Ponoka is eligible.

ATCO Energy’s education bus will also be present at the celebration.

ATCO Gas held a media launch regarding their centennial program May 29. With the release of more information from the launch those interested can visit www.atcogas.com for competition rules.
