You can get your cowboy on during next month’s Cochrane Winter Carnival, and help Henry, Ganuk and Inukshuk at the Polar Bear Habitat in the process.

The annual Country Saloon is set for Saturday, February 9th,  this year at the Commando Pavilion, featuring ten hours of country music, and a roast beef supper.

Polar Bear Habitat Foundation board member Dean Breathat (BRETH-it) says the foundation is taking it over from the francophone seniors club – Club Amical 50 – which has been running it for years.

“At least a decade, anyway,” Breathat remarks. “ And they’ve always put on a good show and it was great thing for carnival.  So they were letting it go and I went and approached them to see if they were willing to let us take it over. They’re helping us out with it and they said yeah, so that’s how we’re doing it.”

The saloon opens at 3:00pm, and the DJ will play country music until 1:00am.

Breathat says the money raised will help Henry, Ganuk and Inukshuk at the Polar Bear Habitat.

“We’re using this to raise money for security and cameras around the whole facility.”

Country Saloon is an adults-only event. Tickets for the supper are available at Heavener’s Variety store.  Admission for the saloon only is available at the door.
