There were a lot of flashing lights on Centre Street on December 6th from 2 till 4 p.m., but there was no cause for alarm.
It was all part of a Charity Check Stop for Rowan House and Foothills Regional Victim Services.
Brittany Smith, team leader at Rowan House says the weather was amazing this year and the donations are important for both charities.
"We are raising money that goes towards our basic needs and helping individuals that are in crisis and fleeing domestic violence," said Smith.
RCMP, firefighters, EMS and volunteers with both charities took part in the event.
Meriddell Richardson with Victim Services says it was a great day.
"For victim services this is awesome," said Richardson. "It is helping get some recognition out here and that we are here for the community. Any money raised goes between us and Rowan House and that goes a long way when you are a non-profit."
She added the nice weather really helped.
"It is moving well and people are happy and everyone has the Christmas spirit."
