2024 Proclamations in the County of Barrhead:
Rural Health Week: May 27-31, 2024
Rural health care providers are powerful assets in their communities.  Not only do their health-care skills and practices enhance their rural community's quality of life, but these professionals also contribute to rural life on a more personal level. They have special relationships with their patients and community as family, friends, neighbours, volunteers, teachers, and mentors.
Community volunteers, led by local health professional attraction and retention committees, are the heart and soul of their communities.  These local volunteers go above and beyond to support health care and health-care providers in their communities, developing innovative and collaborative approaches to successfully attract and retain health-care providers, and help keep health care close to home.  
For these reasons, County of Barrhead Council has declared May 27-31, 2024 as Alberta Rural Health Week in the County of Barrhead, and urges all community residents to show appreciation for the contributions of the rural health professionals and community volunteers whose abilities and efforts enhance the quality of life in rural Alberta.
Seniors' Week: June 3-9, 2024
For decades, Albertans have celebrated the first week of June to honour and recognize Albertan seniors for their many contributions to Alberta.  County of Barrhead has joined the provincial government in declaring June 3-9, 2024 to be Seniors' Week.  More information on celebrations throughout the province can be found at:
