HAVE WE GOT A DEAL FOR YOU!
Grande Prairie boasts a number of dining options; from fast food to fine dining, national chains to local treasures. Some of these restaurants may generously provide coupons for you to experience first-hand what they have to offer.
Other organizations want to express their hospitality in their own way, with tickets, information, or outings--at no charge to you.
Hit the Ground Running--Welcome to Grande Prairie
Monday, Sept 4, evening, location TBA
We know you want to get to the grocery store and get organized . . . so this will be the quickest tour you will ever have! When you arrive you will be introduced to your accommodations and classroom. We will figure out a time to meet the next day--to get your parking passes, and some other goodies.
On your way here, let us know when you leave Edmonton, and again when you are in Valleyview--I will meet you at your apartments, an hour later. (Maps and directions will be e-mailed to you beforehand.)
Meet the Locals.
Tentative Date: Thursday, September 7th at 7:00 PM, at the Chamber Offices. (Centre 2000, 11330 106 Street)
This is a "Meet and Greet" where you mingle with various sponsors, representatives from the City, medical organizations (including the Residents), Chamber of Commerce, and the media. You and your fellow students will be welcomed by some of the people that supported and helped organize your stay in Grande Prairie.
