  • What would it take to make a veteran of hundreds of hockey battles, a two time Olympic Gold medalist, fearful?  How ’bout dancing?  Former Women’s National Hockey Team member Carla MacLeod admits she was plenty nervous when she agreed to dance in the 2018 Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off.  Now head coach of the female midget prep team at Calgary’s Edge School, MacLeod thought this could be a good teaching moment.  Check out the video and judge for yourself just how far a little courage can go..

    Proceeds from the 2018 Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off will help build an incredible new park in downtown Red Deer.  The Canada Games Celebration Plaza will be headquarters for our entire community during the 2019 Canada Winter Games.  Then the park will anchor future events and become a permanent and critical fixture for community building events for decades to come!

    Carla MacLeod and David Joseph.. Thanks for coming up the highway from Calgary!   Thank you for helping us develop a beautiful new asset for our downtown, our community, and our future.

    CELEBRATING THE GOOD WORKS IN OUR COMMUNITY A COMMUNITY INITIATIVE The Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off (SCDO) is a community builder initiative that brings together the professional dance community, community leaders, the business community and many talented volunteers to build awareness and raise funds for the great works happening in our community. It's about Red Deer coming together to Share the Magic! RED DEER'S PREMIER ANNUAL GALA Every year 8 community leaders step out of their comfort zone accepting the challenge to raise $15,000 for a chosen charity and, with the assistance of a professional dance instructor, learn a dance routine which he/she will perform on the night of the event. It is a sold-out event! Over eight hundred people from all walks of life attend the event supporting their favourite dance couple and the chosen charity. By now the audience is hyped right up and eager to hit the dance floor so the evening closes with a public dance with the popular Calgary band Dr. Zeus and the Who!

  • The 2019 Canada Winter Games are underway and the city is alive with activity.  You can feel a buzz on major roadways, near any of the games venues, and on the sidewalks and streets downtown.  It’s time to enjoy the experience, take in the sport and culture.. make memories with your loved ones.

    It certainly is a good time to be grateful and that’s the way Games Chair Lyn Radford is feeling.  In the days leading up to the games she reached out to her community to offer thanks to a short list of citizens.  Well… at least that ‘was’ a short list of citizens… until the final day of Radford’s “grateful campaign”.    For her final thank you, Lyn turned her attention to the thousands of citizens who are volunteering in all the roles needed to make sure these games are a ‘smooth’ success.

    These people have all stepped up to the plate in a major way and Lyn wants to recognize their impact.  If you’re looking for someone to say thank you to for this event and for the many legacy infrastructure projects that will enhance Central Alberta’s offering to future citizens..  say Thank You… to someone in a volunteer uniform.

    Thank you from Todayville as well!   Now over to Lyn:

    Day 1 of personal thanks for 2019 Canada Winter Games – Red Deer journey- is to the 5000 + volunteers that believe in their community and are sharing their time and skills to make this event a life shaping experience for athletes and spectators .

    From the bottom of my heart ❤️ I send so much love to all of you for stepping up! I know you will show CANADA the class act Red Deer, Central Alberta and Alberta is!

    Brett Kissel and Frannie Klein kick off the 52 North Music and Cultural Festival Sat. Feb. 16

  • Opening night of the 52 North Concert Series features some serious country music with Alberta’s own Brett Kissel and Manitoba’s Frannie Klein.

     

    Brett Kissel seemingly sprung out of nowhere onto Canada’s country music scene – an apparent overnight sensation who now occupies the lofty space as one of the country’s leading country music stars.
    But there’s always another story – the one that saw a young kid from Flatbush writing songs from a young age, ducking in and out of Legion Halls, shopping centres, and downtown clubs in the middle of  severe Edmonton winter nights.  He was not old enough to get into them through the front doors.
    Always an acoustic guitar case in hand, cowboy hat firmly in place, and the look of calm determination of someone who knew at an early age that this was what they were meant to do.  Polite, energetic, and talented.  Brett’s paid his dues and has what it takes to be an ‘overnight sensation’.

    Here’s some background from Brett’s website:

    Over the past few years, the country crooner has received an armful of Canadian Country Music Association Awards, (including two straight wins for Male Artist of the Year and the coveted Fans’ Choice). Brett was the recipient of the Allan Slaight Honor from Canada’s Walk of Fame (previously presented to Drake, Shawn Mendes and The Weeknd), the Breakthrough Artist of the Year winner at the JUNO Awards, and was recognized as the International Artist of the Year at the Worldwide Radio Summit in Hollywood, California (an honour bestowed upon Ed Sheeran and Adele in the last two years respectively).

    ‘Frannie Klein is bringing real country music back.’

    Frannie Klein’s bio describes her like this:

    Authentic, badass, and genuine – she is the real deal. Growing up on Lake Manitoba and raised on a cattle ranch, she has been immersed in the country lifestyle since birth. Forever embracing her aboriginal heritage, she often spends time back in Ebb & Flow First Nation , and credits much of her musical passion, fierce spirit, and attitude to her time spent there.

    Frannie Klein and Great Canadian Entertainment President Scott Ord started collaborating in the summer of 2015, working together to create the best possible debut project for her. The album was written by Frannie during a handful of trips down to Nashville over the last two years. Together, with a band of Winnipeg’s finest musicians, they have begun to produce a project that is fun, timeless, and classic. 

    Brett Kissel and Frannie Klein are firing up the mainstage dome at the Gary W. Harris Celebration Plaza on Saturday, February 16. You definitely don’t want to miss this!

    6 p.m. Dome opens
