Acden's Canada Day Parade Float
As everyone is enjoying the summer we want to take a moment to look back to the start of the month when we kicked off July celebrating Canada Day with Acden employees and family on our parade float.
As a proud member of the community we were thrilled to participate in the Canada Day parade with our very own Acden “trees up to trees up” themed parade float. One of Acden Environment’s trucks provided the perfect float platform that incorporated trees and live music, decorated in our Acden purple and Canada flags. Acden employees and their families had fun participating in the festivities by riding on the float or walking alongside handing out branded merchandise to the Franklin Avenue crowds. The Acden float was a head-turner with jigging music from a talented fiddler who kept everyone dancing the entire parade route!
The trees up to trees up themed float symbolized our service offerings and Acden’s commitment to our Better Earth Program. The Better Earth Program incorporates multiple green initiatives with a mission to broaden, diversify and activate environmental consciousness through a combination of actions, awareness and education initiatives. The trees displayed on the float represent the trees that will be planted outside of Acden’s Headquarters, honouring the 15 employees who lost their homes in the 2016 Horse River Wildfire.
We would like to thank everyone who worked hard to make this event such a success, and to those who participated in the 2018 Canada Day parade float celebrations!
