  • The Alberta Sports Hall of Fame and Museum will continue to grow and enhance their collection of artifacts with the support and funding from the Alberta Community Facility Enhancement Program.

    Kim Shreiner, MLA Red Deer North, presented Donna Hateley, Managing Director of the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame and Museum, with a cheque to assist with the renovation costs and improvements to the collections room which stores all the historical sports equipment, trophies, photographs and much more.
    “We are out of space and there is so much more sports history that we would like to be able to preserve for years to come. With the CFEP funding, we will be able to add an open mezzanine floor to accommodate future growth of our collections. We will also be able to incorporate tours of the collection area into our Beyond the Classroom Education.”

    The renovations to the collections room will begin in the new year and will be a huge undertaking. Over 14,000 items will be catalogued, carefully wrapped and properly packed, then stored off-site during these renovations. A project this big would not be possible without the ability to apply for funding through different sources, including the Alberta Community Facility Enhancement Program.

  • Miss. G’s 7-5 class from St. Thomas Aquinas Middle School completed their Almsgiving Bake Sale Thursday with a total amount of $2736 raised for the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre!

    They were so excited to share their news of how much they raised since starting back in March!  Every Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday through out lent, the 7-5’s would bring in treats that they made at home.  They sold the goodies to the rest of the student body at lunch to help raise funds to donate to the Centre.

    Thank you to Miss Goranson for putting this all on for the CACAC, and to the 7-5 class for being apart of this and wanting to help other kiddos – you are amazing!

  • As co-owner of Ryde RD Spin Cycling, Alex Wood may have had a slight athletic advantage over even the most physically fit celebrities in the 2019 Celebrity Dance Off.  Wood also trained as a dancer when she was growing up.  Did all that pay off?  Well some of the judges and many of the spectators were under the impression their might be two pros on the floor when Wood and pro partner Peter Samoila performed.  Check out this fast and flawless salsa / cha cha mix.  Amazing doesn’t do it justice!

    My Story…

    I grew up here in Red Deer, this is home. It took me a while to return after high school but I am so happy to be back. I co-own Ryde RD Spin Studio. Red Deer was the perfect place for my husband Dave and I to start our business.

    I studied at Montana Tech and graduated as a petroleum engineer. I met my husband there and we made our way to Calgary for work. After two and half years, I decided that a desk job wasn’t for me so we packed our bags, moved to Asia and travelled overseas. After too much fun in the sun, we decided to move to Red Deer to start Ryde.

    Supporting our clients and the community is very important to us. We’ve hosted many charity Ryde’s including one for the Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off.

    Over the next few months, I’ll be putting my travel bug on hold, trading my spin shoes in for dancing shoes, and trying to regain my dancing skills from my teenage years. I’m honored to be a part of this event and passionate about the cause.
