Community Cormack Armoury site of annual Soldier’s Appreciation Dinner Published 3 months ago on 3 months ago By Lloyd Lewis <►> As Honorary Lieutenant Colonel of 41 Signal Regiment in Alberta, I’m witness to many of the Regiment’s events. One of my favourites is the Soldier’s Appreciation Dinner, held annually at Red Deer’s Cormack Armoury. I’m continually impressed by the Regiment’s enthusiasm, sportsmanship, commitment, humility, and any number of other qualities that make spending time with them so enjoyable and enlightening. This short video slide show captures some of the sights and sounds of this special day. You can also click on the photo gallery. 41 Signal Regiment (41 Sig Regt) is a Reserve Force communications unit assigned to 41 Canadian Brigade Group (41 CBG) in Alberta.

Community Photo club focuses on Arctic images Published 1 day ago on 1 day ago By Rob Gilgan If you’ve ever imagined grabbing your camera and heading off to photograph remote parts of the northern hemisphere, the Northwest Passage, Iceland or the remote Islands off of the shores of Scotland, the central Alberta photo club has a presentation you need to see. Adventure Canada will share their experience photographing in Canada’s north and its coastlines. The company hosts tours on smaller cruise ships bringing photographers to shore via zodiacs. “The club brings in different speakers to please the variety of individual needs of its members,” says Scotty Roxburgh, the club’s president, adding, “and we like to stimulate each level of photographer to move outside of their individual comfort zone.” “Adventure Canada provides a variety of experts on their cruises to educate individuals about the remote areas they visit, professional photographers along with historians, marine biologists, culturalists, archaeologist, authors, artists,” Roxburgh said. He thinks the cruise will interest more than just the club members, so tickets for the March 3 presentations at Golden Circle event will also be available to the public at the door or online at http://centralalbertaphotographicsociety.com . Dr, Scott Forsyth, is an expert landscape photographer and he’ll share how he creates images, demonstrate setting up and photographing in remote areas, discuss composition, available light and post processing to achieve great images. The session runs from 2 until 5 pm Saturday returning at 7 pm with David Newland sharing his experiences of travelling the Northwest Passage through his Story and Song, a musical and spoken-word performance of original songs, along with photographs, inspired by the sights and sounds of the Canadian Arctic. Roxburgh’s club, the Central Alberta Photographic Society, goes by its acronym nickname, CAPS, and is having a banner year, providing and organizing compelling presenters and interesting and rewarding outings. Membership includes beginners and experts and all levels in between, all enthusiastic about capturing images of great experiences. Think snowy owls. X-country ski championships. Beautiful Alberta landscapes. Ice bubbles at Lake Abraham. As members get comfortable with their cameras, getting that great shot gets more compelling; the opportunities to take interesting photos keep expanding and they get together for some really enjoyable and instructive activity. Often outside, in fresh air. Last month, more than a dozen members of the club covered the 2018 Haywood Noram/Peavy Mart Western Canadian Championships at Riverbend, taking thousands of images and providing organizers and athletes with a collection of more than 3,000 moments captured. Roxburgh says he’s pleased with how well the membership gels socially this year with good attendance and lots of enthusiastic participation. Details of the Adventure Canada and Northwest Passage in Story, Song and Photograph are available at http://centralalbertaphotographicsociety.com Continue Reading Community Get your tickets now for the Red Deer Hospitals Lottery Published 3 days ago on 3 days ago By Todayville The Red Deer Hospitals Lottery helps to raise funds for programs, services and the purchase of medical equipment. This year, the funds will be used to purchase new technologically advanced patient beds. What’s in a bed? Springs, foam, air, water, feathers? …new technology for hospital beds has far more options than these! If you or a loved one has stayed in a hospital you quickly discovered that one-size does not fit-all in terms of a bed. Innovations have improved safety, comfort and functionality while reducing pain, pressure points and skin breakdown. Red Deer Hospital Lottery 2018 is dedicated to providing this new technology for patients at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre. These new beds will extend to fit a larger compliment of the population served by the Red Deer Hospital. They will also lower, allowing easier access for shorter patients. This helps to prevent falls and slipping. Air surfaces can be adjusted to the firmness the patient requires to suit his/her comfort and therapy needs. New bed fabric – considerably more breathable – will lead to enhanced comfort and reduced sweating. Plus, unique air inflation options will make repositioning in bed easier for immobile patients. This not only optimizes patient comfort, it reduces strain and effort by caregivers while repositioning or performing other care activities. From a safety perspective, newer beds have sensitive alarms that tell staff if a patient is about to get up without assistance. This alerts the nursing staff to attend to the person’s needs much sooner than the inevitable “bump” of a patient falling against something. The same alarm will identify when the mattress needs to be inflated to a therapeutic setting, which also supports patient comfort and safety. Finally, our new beds will have a very practical safety feature: a light under the bed illuminating the floor and any potential tripping hazards while not distracting from the need for sleep. Red Deer Hospital Lottery 2018 is continuing to support this exciting technological advancement at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre, as the 2017 campaign was able to fund for half the beds required, with 49 left to purchase! The 2018 Red Deer Hospital Lottery Dream Home, designed by Sorento Custom Homes, combines classic design with modern luxury. This $839,895 corner lot bungalow features 2,917 sq ft of developed living space, high vaulted ceilings, a screened sunroom, private side entrance, and a big double garage. But, there’s more! Enjoy your cozy main floor library, or start the day fresh in your own yoga room. Plus! This year’s home comes with furnishings provided by The Brick valued at $35,000. Our Dream Home is located in the gorgeous new community of Laredo, on the south east corner of Red Deer. Todayville is proud to be a sponsor of this year’s Red Deer Hospitals Lottery.

This more Event Details On International Mother Language Day, February 21st, the UN's Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and UN agencies, participate in events that promote linguistic and cultural diversity. This day was created to support people who lost their lives trying to protect their mother language. As many as half of the world's 7,000 languages are expected to be extinct by the end of this century; it is estimated that one language dies out every 14 days. The aim of CARE is to celebrate the many languages that are spoken in Red Deer and to encourage people of all ages to learn a new language. To commemorate this day, Central Alberta Refugee Effort is hosting an International Mother Language Day Event at the Collicutt Centre, 3031 – 30 Avenue, Red Deer on February 24th from 11am – 2pm. Free Admission. Families are invited to attend and learn words in other languages; play fun word games; discover the many cultures in Red Deer, and win prizes! We will have 16 booths representing many different languages and cultures, hosted by CARE volunteers from many different countries. Participants will be able to play interactive games, answer trivia questions, test their memory and linguistic skills, and above all be introduced to the joy of learning languages in a fun way.
