Proud to be a Ponoka resident

On November 15 and 16, Fort Ostell Museum hosted an Alberta Museums Association course for museum employees from all over Alberta.

Dear Editor,

On November 15 and 16, Fort Ostell Museum hosted an Alberta Museums Association course for museum employees from all over Alberta.

Friday morning started out not bad but by Saturday morning, we realized that the 27 people involved were going to be stranded in Ponoka for an unplanned extra night.

I am so happy to say that Ponoka made me proud and I want to extend a huge thank you to the staff at the Stampeder Motor Inn, The Old Iron Horse Restaurant, Cilantro and Chive Restaurant and First Call Towing for everything that they all did on short notice.

The participants finished early on Saturday afternoon and spent time in “Downtown Ponoka” and from feedback that I received, they had a great shopping experience.

So, all in all, it was not so bad to be stranded in Ponoka!

Sandy Allsopp
