Amber Weekend!

The Amber Weekend is over and it was an incredible time, start to finish. From the Keys to the Region Ceremony on Thursday, August 7th to the Mighty Peace Harley-Davidson Aykroyd Family Ride on August 9th to the Amber Ball later that evening, thousands of people were involved. There was incredible generosity displayed by our sponsors and by the hundreds of volunteers involved. We really can’t thank you enough! Here are a few pictures from the festivities. If you’d like to see more, there are hundreds on our Facebook page!

Municipal leaders from around the Peace Country held a Keys to the Region ceremony for Dan Aykroyd, Donna Dixon Aykroyd and their daughters at Grande Prairie City Hall on August 7, 2014 to honour their contributions to the Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum project.
