Cochrane's newest news source 'Cochrane Now', wants to invite Cochranites to a community barbeque.

Cochrane Now launched mid May and brings a new medium of news to the Cochrane area. Daily online news, music streaming, and an APP make up the family of how Cochrane Now keeps community members connected.

Jeff Young Regional Sales Manager for Golden West Radio, says it is all about giving back to the community.

"When we started up Cochrane Now we approached dozens of community service groups to partner with for our notification channel and community event page so this is something we want to offer as a free thing for the entire community to come down."

Young says Golden West often does community launches in centres they open as it not only builds community spirit, but provides awareness to what our business offers.

"We would love to let people know everything that we have to offer in terms of cutting edge news stories, different businesses they can find in the community, and of course all the community events that happen."

Come celebrate with us on June 21 from 4-6:30 pm on the corner of Railway Street and Centre Ave.

We will have free food, snacks, prizes, kids activities, and much, much more.
