We so McHappy

Helping kids is always on the menu - especially on McHappy Day. That's when $1 from every Big Mac, Happy Meal and Hot McCafé beverage sold goes to Ronald McDonald House and other local children’s charities.

McHappy Day is an event our station and community members love. Eating to help out, it's a beautiful thing!

From 6:00 - 9:00 a.m. I (Luke) was live from the Drumheller McDonald's.

The time slipped by with fun guests, the super McDonald's staff and the knowledge in knowing we were making a difference. One of our guests had a story about Ronald McDonald House that directly affected her family.


Take a look at some of the fun below:


Dr. Francois Therrien of the Royal Tyrrell Museum couldn't make it in to the station for Paleo Talk this week, so he gave us a ring.
