Banner Program

Every year every grade three student in Fairview, Alberta gets to paint a big beautiful banner that hangs from a streetlamp and beautifies the town all summer.  It’s a wonderful program, very much a tradition in Fairview and a ready made project to celebrate any special event in the area.  This year’s theme was the 100th anniversary of the M.D., which generated plenty of ideas in the grade 3 classes.

BannersCarolyn has been the program instructor for six years and Judy is famed for her master paint mixing abilities.  It’s a crazy couple of days, but we enjoy the Banner Program and all the kids who are thrilled to be in on it.

If you happen to be up this way in the summer, watch for Fairview’s wonderful banners!
