Rowan House: Sharing our Gratitude

Rowan House’s Christmas campaign a resounding success 

Rowan House would like to take this opportunity to once again thank the Foothills for it’s generous support throughout the Christmas Season. We were overwhelmed by your kindness. This year was our busiest Christmas yet and the residents who had to spend the holidays in shelter were able to experience a little bit of joy because of you.

Rodeo Announcer Mike Labelle, Sun Country's Jody Seeley, Rodeo Clown, Dennis Halstead and Manager of Okotoks GM, Dan Katz surprise Rowan House residents with some special gifts.
