Drive off to School in Style

While we don’t want to admit it, summertime, at least for students, is nearing an end. It has been a peculiar summer here in Calgary with inconsistent weather; however, that has not stopped us from getting on the road in our Advantage Ford vehicles. Our backyard here in Alberta provides us with extensive opportunities for hiking, camping and exploring the great outdoors, and that doesn’t have to end this month. In our July blog series, we even discovered some of the unique tips and tricks of utilizing your Ford vehicle to its full potential for all of this Canadian exploring. Unfortunately, it’s now time to change gears and begin preparing for a brand new school year.

Parents and students across Canada are savouring their last few summer weekends and beginning to prepare the lists for back to school shopping. Your students are going to need the outfit, stationery supplies, and the NEW CAR, so they can arrive safely and in style on campus.
