In 1985, the National Park system in Canada celebrated it’s 100th anniversary. Students from the Alberta and Manitoba schools volunteered to take part in a pageant that carried them from Rocky Mountain House in Alberta to Lower Fort Garry just north of Winnipeg. There were 23 staff and students from the Alberta school and 17 staff and students from the Manitoba school.
The pageant began on July 1st and finished August 5th. There was a good deal of media coverage for the trip.
