Residents of Elkford are now able to have up to date information on their community at their fingertips as Elkford launches Facebook and Twitter accounts. The District will be using the social media avenues as a way to engage the community, promote events and keep residents informed of day-to-day activities going on at the District. “We have had a really great response already. It is great having a new way of connecting with people. Our Facebook page is just getting started and senior staff are getting on board with social media as well,” says Randi McDonald, District of Elkford, Communications and Marketing Clerk.

Also, the District of Elkford is very excited to launch a promotional video that depicts summertime escapades with Elkford’s ‘mighty bear’, on YouTube. “We have had 800 hits to our video already,” says McDonald.” Our winter video is already done and we are excited to release it in October,” she says.
