Cochrane in Brief

Show your Pride

The Boys and Girls Club of Cochrane and Area is kicking off Pride Week early with a pride t-shirt design contest. The contest is open to anyone between the ages of 12 and 22 in the Cochrane and Morley area. T-shirt design winners will be decided by local celebrity judges and will be rewarded with free pride gear. The winning design will be placed on t-shirts that will be for sale in the community. T-shirt design entries can be emailed to bpoettcker@bgccochrane.ca. The deadline for entries is Friday (July 16). 

Support local and enjoy a picnic

The Cochrane and District Chamber of Commerce has launched a fun new program designed to promote local businesses and tourism in town. Several local restaurants will be offering special hand-crafted picnics to go this summer as part of a new program organized by the Cochrane Tourism Association and the Chamber of Commerce. The program will be available from July 6 to Aug. 24. New picnic items will be announced every Tuesday and can be ordered at cochranetourism.ca/picnic. The first 50 picnics sold each week will receive a free cooler backpack.

Be water-wise

The Town of Cochrane is reminding residents to "go slow on the H20" this summer. The Town is currently under Level One water restrictions and is encouraging residents to be water-wise to avoid moving to Level Two. Under Level One using water outside can only be done between 5 to 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. Any changes to watering restrictions are advertised immediately on the Town website, social media and digital signs.
