ART IN THE PARK
September 7, 2019 at the Vermilion Heritage Park from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., sponsored by Inter Pipeline.
Join us for a fun filled day for the whole family at the Vermilion Heritage Park (5320- 50 Avenue). We will be presenting a free lunch, cinnamon buns baked in our community oven, painting class, art talents, displays, face painting, and artisan exhibitors. Centered in the heart of Vermilion, there are many activities that can be enjoyed during this action packed weekend.
The MAN VAN, sponsored by Inter Pipeline, will also be present at the Art in the Park from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Canada’s first and only mobile men’s health clinic, offering free PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) blood testing for men aged 40-80. One in seven men in Alberta will be affected by prostate cancer. When detected early it is very treatable. A PSA blood test from your family doctor or a 10 minute trip to the MAN VAN can aid in early detection. There is no appointment necessary.
