This past Saturday, the St. Eugene Golf Resort & Casino had the pleasure of sponsoring the Annual Sam Steele Days Grand Parade. This year’s theme was: ’50 Years of Heart’ – Celebrating 50 years with Cranbrook’s Sam Steele Sweetheart Youth Ambassadors, their mentors and sponsors.
Starting at Balment Park, the hour and a half long parade was led by Sandra Van Steijn, St. Eugene’s Interim CEO, and this year’s Parade Marshal. Sandra and the St. Eugene team rode in golf carts and a float adorned with authentic tipi. Floats, classic cars, pipe bands, bugle bands, dancers and many more entrants made up the festive procession. Former Sam Steele royalty were also on hand, lending a sense of nostalgia to this year’s parade. A huge thanks to all volunteers and supporters of this fabulous local event!
