The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo has created a Youth Songwriting CD developed from a program run last winter with the regional school boards.
The Wood Buffalo Youth Song Project CD is the result of songwriting workshops and musical presentations conducted in 10 regional schools. Area schools include Fort Chipewyan School , Fort MacKay School, and Father Perin (Janvier) , Father Turcotte, Thickwood Heights, Father Mercredi, St. Martha, Good Shepherd, and Father Beauregard. A professionally produced CD of the student’s songs and artwork was manufactured.
This CD is now available to regional non profit organizations as a fundraising opportunity. The CDs are to be sold for $20.
A request letter is to be provided to the Municipality indicating the number of CDs (to a maximum of 200 per organization) and where the funds raised will be utilized. Deadline for request is November 30, 2011.
A closing report will be required to indicate CD sales and any CDs left unsold are to be returned to the Municipality. Organizations will have 1 complete calendar year to sell the CDs.
