To kick off the summer, Sunrise Corner held a launch for our new marketing plan Friday, April 26.
Those who came out to Zhoda for our public event were treated to a recap of videos from past seasons, hotdogs and refreshments, a fun outdoor scavenger hunt and a summary of the new marketing strategies Sunrise Corner hopes to implement in the coming years.
Sunrise Corner’s goal is to promote the nature, culture and events here in the RMs of Piney and Stuartburn. Through the funding from Partner for Growth and the marketing firm Changemakers, we have researched and polled to come up with strategies to grow and develop our reach.
It’s the beginning of fall supper season! Whether you’re a foodie looking for some cultural fare, or a local wanting to get out and experience the community, there are plenty of dinners to satisfy your cravings.
As the weather heats up, there’s no better way to spend a day than outside with friends and family, or cool off with a community event. Here are some of the events you don’t want to miss this month! Read more
Looking to fill up your weekends this month? Sunrise Corner has something for you – whether it be a community social with friends and family or a private workshop to work on a better you. (Workshops may have limited spaces. Contact the organizers for more information.)
