FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Taber Region to Host 2018 Southern Alberta Summer Games
October 11, 2017
TABER, AB – It is with pleasure that the Town of Taber announces that the region will be hosting the 2018 Southern Alberta Summer Games (SASG). The region was awarded the games by the Southern Alberta Recreation Association today in Taber. These games mark the 5th time the games have been hosted in the Town of Taber and the Municipal District of Taber, and the 49th anniversary of the games themselves.
“We are beyond excited to host the games again,” said Director of Recreation Aline Holmen, “The facilities within the Municipal District and Town are first-rate and we look forward to welcoming everyone throughout Southern Alberta to our incredible community. When we last hosted the games in 2013, we had over 300 volunteers from both the Town and MD, and we are very thankful to those who have made and continue to make these games a success when we host them.”
“The volunteers are truly what makes the Southern Alberta Summer Games so special,” said Bonnie Ellis, Co-Chair of the Southern Alberta Recreation Association, “The incredible generosity of their time and talents showcase who we are as Southern Albertans. That the games have reached their 49th milestone is evidence that the games wouldn’t be what they are without the support of the volunteers and the communities.”
The Southern Alberta Summer Games brings together communities throughout the region who compete in sports ranging from archery, swimming, soccer, trapshooting, and many more. All levels and ages compete in the games.
Details regarding the Games will be released in the coming months.
