The Town of Killam is investigating the idea of developing an "Opportunity Development Co-operative" that will give community members opportunity to become community investors - in turn stimulating economic growth - righ here in our own backyard! Community Co-operatives have a proven record of success - which can create a win/win potential with endless possibilities for our community.
A "Opportunity Development Co-operative" Information Night will be held on Monday, November 3rd at the Killam Community Hall - beginning at 7:00pm. Please join us to learn more about cooperatives and some of the projects that can be addressed!

The Battle River Community Foundation is holding the 2014 Community Builders' Dinner on Saturday, August 23, 2014 at the Killam Community Hall. This year, the couple of Stan and Sharleen Chevraux are being honoured.
The couple have taken part in many community roles over the years. County Councillor, Chair of the Killam Hospital Board and Killam Hospital Foundation, coaching trapshooting and teaching of firearms safety, founding of the Flagstaff Writers’ Guild and the Battle River Training Hub, Director with Alberta Flying Farmers, County Agricultural Advisory Board, participation with the Chamber of Commerce and the Adult Learning Council as well as contributing to the Knox United Church - are just a small list.
The Community Builders Dinner will feature a variety of speakers who will toast the couple, as well as a number of items available for live auction. Live Auction proceeds will be used to establish a fund in Stan and Sharleen’s name, which will support education and the local hospital.

James Agencies, Budding Ideas, Jam Tarts, Town of Killam Office, The Community Press’ Killam Office, Underground Hair, Campbell McLennan, Rocky Mountain Equipment, Killam Liquor Store, Holbie’s Glass, or by contacting Judy Larson, BRCF Director at 385-4969.
Flagstaff Waste will be introducing new bins to add to the recylcing program! Coming in July, recylce bins will take on a new appearance! Currently, green bins are for compost of yard waste material, blue bins are for cardboard recylcing, and the addition of a new yellow bin will take care of paper, rigid plastics (#1-17) and tin and aluminium cans.
To help make recylcing easier, new signage will also clearly indicate what items are to be recycled in which bins. Watch for details in the upcoming weeks!
With the onset of Fall weather, the local coyote population is looking for some friendlier living conditions - and they have decided the Town might well be the place to be! After a number of reports about coyotes being seen within Town limits, we've contacted Alberta Fish and Wildlife for some information about deterring our unwelcomed visitors. The information below was taken for the Alberta Fish and Wildlife website, for more details, please visit: http://srd.alberta.ca/FishWildlife/FishWildlifeOfficers.HumanWildlifeConflict/Cyotes.aspx
How can I prevent coyotes from returning to my neighbourhood?
