On March 11th, 2017, in Turner Valley, Alberta, a fundraiser crop will be held for a cause that is very important to the Foothills of Alberta. Years ago there was a larger scale crop held in Okotoks in support of this cause, this current crop is not connected with that group, it was started completely separate and by some great ladies in the Turner Valley area. It was brought to my attention a few years ago, and I was all over supporting this great cause, once again, as a crop participant.
Rowan House mission:
Our Mission at the Rowan House Emergency Shelter is to provide crisis intervention, long-term support and education for those affected by family violence in rural communities.
Rowan House is an emergency shelter for women and children serving the Foothills and area. It is an important resource to the community, not only as a shelter, but also for their prevention education programs. As a past teacher in High River, the ladies from Rowan House had come to my high school classes to educate our students on the different types of abuse and what a healthy relationship should entail. They have education programs for all ages and are a valued part of our community. As a woman, a mom, an educator, I, like many others in our communities, whole-heartedly support this organization and the amazing work they do.
