TLC is thrilled to present ‘An Evening with The Lending Cupboard’ on June 16!

Olympic women’s hockey team gold-medalist Dr. Hayley Wickenheiser and Ryan Straschnitzki, who survived the Humboldt Broncos bus crash, will be our special guests for ‘An Evening with The Lending Cupboard’ on June 16th. This fundraising event will feature an inspirational evening with a delicious dinner, 50/50 draw and silent auction items!

“When I think of this event, I reflect on our community which has been so resilient and has continued to look forward,” explained Dawna Morey, TLC’s executive director. “I also believe this can be a celebration after two years of not being able to come together in the ways we were so used to.

“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate then to have two inspirational people like Dr. Hayley Wickenheiser and Ryan Straschnitzki come and speak to us,” she added. “It just aligns so well with what we do at The Lending Cupboard.

“We’ve read about the journeys that both of these individuals have gone through in their lives – their accomplishments, overcoming of adversity. It’s inspirational for us, because that is what we hope we can also help people do here at The Lending Cupboard. In planning events like this, there has to be a connection with what we do here at The Lending Cupboard. I think Hayley and Ryan exemplify that.

“Most importantly for us, is that we serve our clients with dignity – and we can’t do that without the community’s support,” said Morey. “So this is a way for the community to come out and support us, and at the same time, really enjoy an evening with two incredible people.”

Morey also pointed out there are still a number of ways for businesses to support An Evening with The Lending Cupboard through a range of sponsorship opportunities.

The Laft Hus celebrates 35 years in Red Deer

Published on

The Laft Hus is a replica of an 18th-century farmhouse in the Numedal district in Norway. It was created through the efforts of volunteers, and it officially opened to the public in 1987.

The museum contains many old artifacts and examples of Norwegian arts and crafts and a small butikk of Norwegian items and the house itself is of note due to its traditional sod roof.

The museum and gift shop are open to visitors every day (except Mondays) from June 1 through to August 31, 9:00 am to 3 pm. For the remainder of the year, the Norwegian Laft Hus is open each Wednesday when a group of ladies meet to work on Norwegian arts and crafts.

This year, the Laft Hus celebrates its 35th year in Red Deer. The annual festival will take place on June 18, 2022 and will have many activities, entertainment, Norwegian food and vendors for the visitors to enjoy. Help us celebrate!
