Flatbush

Welcome to Flatbush

Where Friends and Rivers Meet - Flatbush, AlbertaThe hamlet of Flatbush is an agricultural town
With cattle and grain farming and a few saw mills around.
The complex that hosts all the big events,
Summer festival, parade, breakfast
And the Oktoberfest tents
Two baseball diamonds, gymkhana and horseshoes
A cold booth with varieties of meals you can choose.
And then there is play school for the pre-kindergarten child
With a playground out back where the kids can run wild.
The Northern Lakes CAP site offers courses galore
The Library holds thousands of books to explore.
Quilters and crafters converge for the day.
"Sew it Seams" they can combine work while they play.
The Hall Board in spring, sponsors a strawberry tea.
The REC Board has the swim program annually.
The Help Service offers a break temporarily
And 4-H kids train for achievement day- warily
The M.D. building and the Fire Hall too
HarvestingWith the "DeFib", "Jaws of Life" and a crack volunteer crew
The brand new Post Office sits on its plot
Across from the new Store which offers a lot.
Silver Threads-Seniors has floor curling and sports
And their famous senior suppers that has attracted all sorts
In the Flatbush Legion where we gather to remember
And often they host a roast supper or two
While throughout the summer there's a
Monthly steak barbeque.
Trans Canada and Klondike are trails you might hike.
For people athletic there's a Golf Course you’d like.
Drift down the Pembina in your favorite canoe
Or picnic by the Athabasca while you enjoy the view
Altogether Flatbush may not be a BIG place
but you're guaranteed to find a friendly smiling face.
