What a great turnout! Over 500 people attended the first Vecova Stampede BBQ open to the public and it was wonderful to see all of you dressed in your best cowboy-inspired outfits.
Performers kept our guests entertained with music and magic tricks as they lined up for lunch. A cupcake truck was also on site for any guests who wanted a sweet treat after their meal. We finished off our BBQ with a line dancing performance and lesson, followed by a speech from our guest of honour, the Honourable Stephanie McLean, M.L.A, Minister of Service Alberta and Minister of Status of Women.
Thank you to all of the volunteers who made this event possible. A special thank you to the Calgary Stampede for their outstanding support of our event.
Finally, a very big thank you to the Honourable Stephanie McLean, M.L.A., for your support of Vecova and persons with disabilities in the community and to all of our clients, customers, friends, neighbours and staff who were able to join us for the event.
