LACOMBE & DISTRICT HISTORICAL SOCIETY

The Lacombe & District Historical Society own and operate the Michener House Museum and the Lacombe Blacksmith Shop Museum.  Facilities are open year-round to provide school tours, host special events for the community and have their collection of over 40,000 items in the archives accessible for researchers.  2021 marks their 50th anniversary!

While the organization jumped into the new decade with high hopes, the pandemic closed museums and galleries causing the organization to pivot their practices with regard to donations, fees and funding.

As a participant and winner of the #SocialMediaChallenge, "the challenged pushed us to reach thousands of new audience members and we were able to able to share our work and efforts internationally because of it".

CASTOR & DISTRICT FAMILY & COMMUNITY SUPPORT SERVICES (FCSS) - 4901-50 Ave

Castor & District FCSS supports and promotes healthy communities through education, prevention and referrals. They work with people young and old and cover the west half of the County of Paintearth.

The best practice learned by the organization is the importance of listening and help out against obstacles.  "It is important for people to be able to reach support easily and quickly as they may already have an overwhelming amount of stuff happening in lives and one more barrier can be devastating". 

"Through participation in the #Social Media Challenge, they "believe it did add value to this agency because of the new ways to post to keep people engaged".
