"At Union Gas, our ultimate goal is simple, we want everybody to return home safely at the end of each and every day," said Glen Huard, construction and growth manager, Union Gas. "Working together, we know that programs like Families First will help make people and this community safer."

The Families First New Year's Eve Event is celebrating its 23rd year and is the finale to the Canada 150 Celebrations. One of its major event attractions is the public skating at Memorial Gardens. Each year the Committee sees children on the rink without proper safety equipment.

"By providing children with helmets we can help prevent possible head injuries" stated Brian Winkworth, honorary chair, Families First Committee. "This generous donation from Union Gas supports the primary goal of the safety of children during this fun-filled family event."
