Elizabeth Plumtree – A Lifetime of Achievement

As we approach the 2017 Women of Excellence Awards, we take a look back at one of two recipients of the 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award.

Elizabeth Plumtree came to Red Deer with her husband, David in 1973.  It was through their joint decision to get involved in the community that she came to join a group of people who decided to establish a community wide Canada Day Celebration.  The same group worked to save the old Cronquist farmhouse.   With a core of volunteers, they moved it across a frozen Red Deer River to its current home at Bower Ponds.

Over the next three decades, Elizabeth tirelessly promoted Red Deer’s diversity and multiculturalism while showcasing the City’s pride in its own heritage through programs and events at Cronquist House such as the Bowers Pond Canada Day celebrations. Elizabeth Plumtree became the face and name behind the Cronquist House and turned it into the jewel of the City of Red Deer’s parks system it is today.

Now retired, Elizabeth has continued to provide leadership, guidance and experience to the Society as a board member and volunteer.  Here’s how Elizabeth grew from an interested new citizen into a committed leading citizen of Red Deer.
