    (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 2019 Canada Winter Games are underway and the city is alive with activity.  You can feel a buzz on major roadways, near any of the games venues, and on the sidewalks and streets downtown.  It’s time to enjoy the experience, take in the sport and culture.. make memories with your loved ones.

    It certainly is a good time to be grateful and that’s the way Games Chair Lyn Radford is feeling.  In the days leading up to the games she reached out to her community to offer thanks to a short list of citizens.  Well… at least that ‘was’ a short list of citizens… until the final day of Radford’s “grateful campaign”.    For her final thank you, Lyn turned her attention to the thousands of citizens who are volunteering in all the roles needed to make sure these games are a ‘smooth’ success.

    These people have all stepped up to the plate in a major way and Lyn wants to recognize their impact.  If you’re looking for someone to say thank you to for this event and for the many legacy infrastructure projects that will enhance Central Alberta’s offering to future citizens..  say Thank You… to someone in a volunteer uniform.

    Thank you from Todayville as well!   Now over to Lyn:

    Day 1 of personal thanks for 2019 Canada Winter Games – Red Deer journey- is to the 5000 + volunteers that believe in their community and are sharing their time and skills to make this event a life shaping experience for athletes and spectators .

    From the bottom of my heart ❤️ I send so much love to all of you for stepping up! I know you will show CANADA the class act Red Deer, Central Alberta and Alberta is!
