    (Red Deer, Alberta)Public Works is inviting the community to help load a loader with donations of new and gently used, clean winter coats and mittens at the Snow and Ice Celebration on Saturday.

    Donations can be dropped off during the Snow and Ice Celebration at Civic Yards on December 1 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. In the spirit of Public Works, donations will be collected in the bucket of a loader and distributed to local social agencies.

    “We are dedicated to making Red Deer a great place to live and wanted to find a way to give back to those in need,” said Greg Sikora, Public Works Manager. “We know that local social agencies are in need of more winter items as the cold weather sets in, and this is a great opportunity for the community to come together and help out.”

    The Snow and Ice Celebration is free and everyone is invited to join the fun. There will be winter crafts and activities, hot chocolate and cookies, and Santa will make a special visit from 12 to 2 p.m. for photos.

    Residents can also learn more about the Snow and Ice program, including their Snow Zone and Route and how to sign up for Snow Zone alerts. The new Blue and Black Carts will also be on display, including a demonstration of the waste management trucks in action.

    Parking will be available on site or guests can take transit directly to the event.

    Information about the event is available online at reddeer.ca/snow.

  • The support of donors and sponsors ensures the Red Deer Symphony Orchestra can create and inspire the next generation of musicians. In particular, we provide professional level performance opportunities for emerging artists, such as Harbour Lehocky, to facilitate their development as musicians.’

    Harbour will be making her debut performance with the Red Deer Symphony Orchestra at the June 8th ‘Season Finale’ concert in recognition of being a 2018 winner of the Red Deer Festival of the Performing Arts.

    Harbour started violin at the age of six, almost 9 years ago, and continues to ask her parents why they didn’t get her started with lessons earlier! She is the concertmaster for the Rosedale Valley Strings Orchestra, conducted by Naomi Delafield, and a member of the Burman University Symphony Orchestra with whom she toured Western Canada in 2018 and California earlier this year. Harbour attended the Orford Musique Academy in Quebec in the summer of 2018, funded by the Lacombe Endowment Grant and will attend several international camps and competitions as well as perform a solo piece with a youth orchestra in Austria this summer.

    This busy young musician is also a provincial medals recipient in swimming, holds two provincial records in breaststroke, and is a 2016 Alberta Summer Games bronze medal recipient in triathlon.

    Join the audience (tickets remain available) and help the RDSO welcome Harbour Lehocky to the stage!
