The Literacy For Life Foundation had a monumental year, as they celebrated two decades of bringing low cost educational programs to the Foothills County.

Executive Director for Literacy For Life Sue Stegmeier says, their technology education programs have been an area of focus and heading into 2019, they know they'll be busy.

"We've been able to introduce some new programs of technology training that we are very proud of, that we have been able to offer in our communities with no cost. Early year programs are where a lot of the increase has been. We're at maximum capacity in a lot of the programs where we focus on helping the parents, help their children."

Stegmeier says a highlight of the year, was being able to celebrate their 20th anniversary in George Lane Park in High River with a few other local organizations.

"This year we had the celebration in August in the park. So that was a good time to reflect on what we have accomplished, where we came from and what we've accomplished."

The group already have a few events planned for the new year, such as the Family Literacy Bingo Event for Grade 3 students in both school divisions.
