This in effect means that Sunnybrook’s famous pie sales are back, with alfresco lunches on July 14 and 28, as well as August 11 and 25. It is recommended to call to make a reservation.
Plus, the Pioneer Days Festival takes place August 14-15, and day camp registrations fill up quickly.
“There are no restrictions,” adds Warwick. “Staff will wear masks near the public, hand sanitizer will be available and the number of people allowed in a building at a time is always limited. “
He also noted that Sunnybrook survived 2020 largely thanks to a handful of anonymous donations. The organization has a budget of $ 250,000 per year and collects a large portion of it.
Warwick adds that the Red Deer Native Dance Troupe remains a tenant on site and that group will be in the park during the summer to do drum circles and engage the farm patrons.
“It’s a wonderful partnership and we love having them here,” says Warwick.
In September, Warwick shares, Sunnybrook will move a church to his land he has offered to save; it is the historic Presbyterian Church in the Willowdale area, southeast of Red Deer.
