Why did your family move to Vauxhall?

Recently our class was studying a timeline of Calgary. This got us thinking about how people move to and from communities. Even today, Calgary has a growing population that is constantly changing. People move from all parts of the country to come to Calgary, and some may choose to leave Calgary for other reasons.

We wondered if this would be the same for a community like Vauxhall. For some of us, we have lived in Vauxhall all of our lives. For others, we might have moved here with our families recently. Whatever our reason, we are a part of a changing community.

Why did your family come to Vauxhall? Did you move here with your parents, or did was your family here for years and years. Did they come because of a job, a farm, the climate, or some other reason? Tell the class about why your family lives in Vauxhall in a COMMENT below.

Comments should be 5-10 sentences. Include as much information as you found from your parents.

My family moved to a farm out of Vauxhaal because of the good soil to plant crops. Also about the good fields to raise cattle. The weather is good. Our old house was to small for four people. We also moved to our farm so we could be close to our grandma and grandpa. We always wanted to live on a farm. My Dad wanted to have animals to get money.We have 12 sheep,2 steirs,41 chickens, 20 cats, 3 llamas, and a dog. Our chikens lay eggs. My Dad plants rye, grain, barley, and mustard. My Dad works at Millekens and my mom works for the Horizon school division office in Taber. My dad fixes tractor and my Secretary. We have gas at our house.

My family lives in Vauxhall because we got a job . My Mom works at home and bakes. My dad works at the workshop. He fixes the trucks and cars and tractors. I got to school at Vauxhall Elementary. I love it! Computers is my favourite part. I am glad that I don't have to walk all the way to Vauxhall from home. That would take maybe a day. I go to school on the bus. Sometimes I see deer in the field and tractors working. In the morning, I get to see the sunrise. It is really neat.

I moved to Vauxhall because my grandparents live here. and theres less traffic. and the school is nice. On the weekend it has a good swimming pool. It is cheap. During the winter there is not too much snow. Just enough. I make snow forts and throw snowballs against my big brothers. We are on the A team for the Vauxhall Sabres. We have only lost one game! I want to live here all my life.

Well, I don't live in Vauxhall, but I can tell you why I moved to the Grassland Region. My home town is Onoway, and it is about an hour west of Edmonton. My family moved to Alberta when I was two and have lived in the Edmonton area ever since.
When I was looking into becoming a teacher, I found out that the University of Lethbridge had a really great program. Not only could I get my degree in Education, but with an extra year, I could also receive a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drama.
My wife and I moved to Lethbridge a little over four years ago, and I have spent most of that time going to school.
Lethbridge is a great place to live, even on the windy days. I love that it is far enough away from other major cities that it can have its own identity. There is theatre, culture, history, and nature all wrapped up in one.
