Let's Connect

The program also welcomes newcomers to Drumheller by providing information about local resources, services and support!

Let’s Connect is a community-based, volunteer-driven initiative in the Drumheller Valley. It helps residents to build relationships with neighbours and increase their sense of belonging.

We hope to reduce isolation, foster social connections and promote inclusivity and community wellness.

Welcome Pack

Through the Let's Connect Initiative, we will provide a tailored welcome pack for you. We include a variety of information to get you familiar with your new community!

Block Buddy

Block Buddies connect with their neighbours, welcome new residents to the neighbourhood and help increase a sense of belonging in the community. Let us connect you with a Block Buddy in your area, or consider becoming one! It's a great way to meet your new neighbours. Training and support provided.

Block Parties

Block Parties are a fantastic way to connect with neighbours and build community. Parties can be hosted year-round, may have different themes or even become an annual event. The possibilities are endless! Contact us if you are interested in hosting, or attending a Block Party in your area!
