It's a hot week in Strathmore, with temperatures expected to reach well into the 30s.

Because of this, residents have been looking for ways to keep cool and beat the heat.

However, one resident, 10-year-old Lily MacLeod, decided to take matters into her own hands and bring some refreshments to the community with her lemonade and face painting stand.

"My family and I went to the circus, and I saw face painting and I thought it would be cool to try it out," said MacLeod. "I just thought it would be nice because it's usually busy at this time of day, and kids like to do this a lot, get lemonade and face paint. So, I decided it was good to do it, and I've been practicing on my brother and mom, so I'm pretty excited."

Her stand was set up outside of the Lions Splash Park on Monday, and by 5 p.m. had already raised over $15. Her face paintings included hearts, stars, and rainbows.

"Sometimes I raise money to my church, Sacred Heart. It's a new building here in Strathmore. So, sometimes I do this to fundraise for that. Other times I just do it for practice and my own self."

With temperatures reaching up to 33°C on Monday, MacLeod said that her stand was at its busiest when she first set up.

The Lions Splash Park opened up over the weekend as Strathmore went into Stage 3 water restrictions just hours before Environment and Climate Change Canada issued a heat warning for the area.

The extreme heat is expected to last for another week, with daytime highs over the weekend still expected to be in the 30s.
