It’s Pinterest party time!
No need to spend hours searching Pinterest for some holiday ideas, we’ve found the best of the best on Pinterest for all of your holiday yums and extras.
Of course, we’ll go for dessert first…
And if there’s still room, then we can have dinner…
This one looks addictive Loaded Baked Potato Dip
After 44 years of running the Christmas Hamper Program, it seems like the Kinettes have got everything down to an art.
Here at Spruce Grove RE/MAX, we start out with a Christmas-y entry area and some wrapped, empty boxes.
We love to take an after photo every year, just before all the donations are picked up so we can really see the full effect of what a caring, supportive community we are blessed to be a part of.
How ’bout a close-up…
Turns out, the Kinettes have a similar tradition (on a much grander scale)!
Every year, some of our realtors and team members head over to help the Kinnette Club, and the many other volunteers, sort and package up donations into hampers. They managed to catch some shots of the action…
Thank you to all of our realtors and the many generous members of the Tri-Area, for all their donations, and the oodles of volunteer time in order to make Christmas a bit merrier for some of our local families.

On July 9th, Spruce Grove hosted an outdoor public market. Great weather, food trucks galore, tons of vendors, entertainment, and general family fun – great start to a season of outdoor market events for Spruce Grove.
The best part is that if you missed it, you can still hit the other three planned for the rest of the summer, starting with the one this weekend! Sunday, August 13th from 11am- 4pm, and there will be an additional feature this weekend called Rock the Art Walk with works and demos from local artists running at the same time… but make sure you go nice and early so you can also make RE/MAX’s Open House Blitz from 1-4pm. 😉
The last two Public Markets after this weekend are booked for August 27 and September 10.
