Alliance celebrates 100 years

On Canada Day, July 1, the Village of Alliance had a homecoming like no other. Bouncy Castles, a Parade, Baseball Tournament, Show and Shine, Art Show, and even a featured train ride to Galahad were apart of the packed schedule to celebrate the historic milestone. In 1916, the Canadian National Railroad surveyed a town site and the rail soon arrived. Businesses settled into the area and Alliance was formed. On Aug. 26, 1918, a Ministerial Order declared the formal existence of the Village of Alliance.
