News Release from The Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce

The Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the release of a series of Red Deer branded t-shirts and ball caps with two dollars from each hat and three dollars from each t-shirt going to support the Outreach Centre Adopt-A-Family program. For the month of December, the Chamber will also be matching these proceeds.

Last year the Chamber ran a design contest inviting entries from community members. Winners were then determined by an independent judging panel comprised of local artists. The Chamber then worked with a local apparel company to develop the clothing.

“There has always been an incredible amount of pride in our community and we regularly receive inquiries from groups looking for Red Deer branded clothing and accessories. The designs really embody the character and essence of our city and we’re thrilled to give Red Deerians an opportunity to show their love in a stylish and comfortable way all while supporting a great cause.” Reg Warkentin, Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce.

“The proceeds from this imitative will go towards The Outreach Centre’s Adopt-A-Family program. For over 20 years sponsors in the community and The Outreach Centre have shared the spirit of Christmas with families in Central Alberta by providing gifts under the tree, special treats and a holiday meal to share. This program provides assistance throughout the year to families when they are most in need. With a focus on the Christmas season, it focuses on single parent families who are struggling and require extra help to provide for their family.” Myles Peake, Director of Fund Development, The Outreach Centre.

The Outreach Centre helps people address domestic violence, suicide, homelessness and overcome the effects of poverty through effective partnerships, education and programming.

The clothing is available in limited quantities and sizes at the Chamber office or through the website at www.reddeerchamber.com/store. You can also follow the Chamber on social media for a chance to win the apparel.

The Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce is a non-partisan, collaborative leader in building a vibrant community and fosters an environment where businesses can lead, be innovative, sustainable, and grow.

Health Basics was my Kick Start to a Healthier Weight

Published on

Editor’s note: The concepts outlined in this article are important and can be adapted to our current isolated lifestyle.

Health Basics was my Kick Start to a Healthier Weight

I am a retired nurse so I know quite a bit about living healthy. However over my last year of work, I had a sedentary job and I felt tired so I did not put as much energy into my own lifestyle and my weight crept up. I was getting a lot of heartburn and I knew weight loss and lifestyle are the first line treatment.

So, after I retired I asked my doctor to send me to Health Basics. It was good to go every week, to have to be accountable, to have others to discuss my choices with as well as to pick up on things from class that I had let slide. I went through the 8 week program and lost 9 pounds. As I know how important it is to continue living healthy and be accountable to myself, I rejoined TOPS which I was a member of a number of years ago. I also continued with exercise classes and yoga at the Golden Circle and now I am down 17 pounds just over 4 months after I started down this path. I am feeling great: stronger, fitter and I have almost no heartburn. Health Basics has helped me to enjoy retirement!”

PS: “I knew Health Basics is a great kick start on healthy living as my husband had attended it years ago when he was diagnosed with diabetes. He followed the class recommendations and has lost more than 75 pounds over the years and feels great too.”

As always Red Deer PCN is here to support your health and wellness. Call 403.343.9100.  Mental Health Counsellors are available for therapy and other concerns.
