News Update from AIR:
We would like to give a very big shout out to all our front-line staff that have been bracing the heat of this pandemic and still delivering care to individuals. You are all appreciated!
August brought the AIR crew down to Popson Park Picnic Shelter for some fun in the sun. Good food, refreshments and water games kept the crew cool. Mike and Julie barbecued, and AIR supervisors took turns helping serve all the fixings for juicy burgers and hot dogs, pop/water, and chips. Teams were created and a bracket was formed for a friendly competition to win Quest Swag and other fun prizes. Games included water polo, ring toss, sponge launch, water gun relay’s, and soccer darts. Carnival games were available in the picnic shelter for those who did not want to or were unable to navigate the terrain of the coulees, however most people participated or sat in the shade of a canopy tent as spectators. COVID-19 did not put a cramp in our style and everyone at AIR had a fun filled, socially distanced day.
