  • With just a few days left before the country turns it’s eyes toward Central Alberta for the 2019 Canada Winter Games, Chair Lyn Radford is turning her gaze inward.  For the last 2 weeks, Lyn has been writing “thank you notes” to several individuals who have made a specific and often a massive impact on our ability to host the games.  These community builders and volunteer organizers are always there when Red Deer needs a boost.  Today Lyn wants to share how one special person has always been there to give Lyn a boost.  Over to you Lyn.


     

    Day 3 of personal thanks on my 2019 Canada Winter Games – Red Deer journey goes to my Mom, Margaret Imeson.

    She was one of my biggest supporters to travel this journey. She kept every news article, attended what ever function needed and was hoping to be able to join her “partner in volunteering” Mary Vincent to help out, but God had different plans.

    Thanks Mom for teaching me about caring for family, friends and community! Thanks Mom for knowing how important 2019 was to Red Deer!
