Never Grow Up!
Celebrating the 14th Annual Central Alberta Children’s Festival

The Show Must Go On …..Celebrating the 14th Annual Central Alberta Children’s Festival with Family Services of Central Alberta on June 5th and June 6th 2020 is taking a new twist…. we are going Virtual. Although it won’t be the same the Community Committee felt it was important for the Show to Go On! Rotary Recreation Park, Red Deer is our usual venue where we are dedicated to providing a fun experience for children and families of all ages, creating memories with one another, and celebrating the kid in all of us. This year you will enjoy the fun from the comfort of your own home.

This year with the current pandemic restrictions we will be hosting the festival via Facebook. We will be celebrating our Volunteers from over the years, sharing some entertainment, having families participate in some hands on activities at home as well as some great opportunities for families to be active and enter to win prizes. We will strive to allow families to actively engage in learning and playtime by fostering their imagination and creativity.

Follow us on Facebook at Central Alberta Children’s Festival @CAChildfest, you can also check out the website at www.centralalbertachildrensfestival.ca for the listing of activities.

Join us and be active with your family as we host our Virtual 2020 Central Alberta Children’s Festival as we celebrate the wonder of childhood ages 0 – 99! We want to remind everyone to have fun and “Never Grow Up!”

The 14th Annual Central Alberta Children’s Festival is made possible by the incredible support of our generous donors, sponsors, and volunteers.

We’ve received a donation of use of a Dodge Caravan from Southside Dodge- they’ve been an incredible support of us over the years.  Attached is the photo we took at the dealership when we picked up the keys on Friday.

Ronald McDonald House Charities Alberta, Red Deer House is truly grateful to Matt Swainson and his entire team at Southside Dodge for their steadfast support of our work to keep families together during the unimaginable hardship of the need to travel for medical treatment for their sick or injured child. Our House is not a nice to have, but a need to have, and we are honoured to work with such an amazing community partner in Southside. The use of the 2021 Dodge Caravan will help us to keep our operating costs down so that we can focus on our work to keep families close.

We have operated in the city for over 8 years, ensuring there is a safe and comfortable place for families to rest while they focus on the recovery of their child(ren).

We are grateful to everyone in Red Deer who supports us!  😊

Smiles Thru Lindsey reaching out with a new video message and urging Albertans to look out for each other at this challenging time

Published on

The holiday season is well behind us, we’re heading into the coldest part of the winter, and although the days are starting to grow longer there’s still a definite lack of daylight in our lives.  The winter blues are a real thing and this year we have COVID, a whole new serious problem to add to our mental health issues.

COVID is also the reason the Smiles Thru Lindsey team has not been able do public events for many months.  Unable to reach out physically through school visits and fund raisers, Smiles Thru Lindsey is reminding Central Albertans to check in on each other.  Also, please follow the Smiles Thru Lindsey Facebook page .  They’ll lead you to the resources you or your loved ones need right away.

Meet Lindsey and the Smiles Thru Lindsey team in this powerful video.  …And remember to check in on the people in your life.

If you’d like to help Smiles Thru Lindsey with a donation please click here.
