  • There are many exciting events taking place in association with World Refugee Day events on June 20th with various activities at the HUB, the Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery, and Festival Hall. These free events will offer opportunities to the community to engage with newcomers who arrived in Red Deer and area under refugee status and for us to learn from each other. Our hope is that this will lead to a more welcoming and inclusive community, embracing of the diversity which has grown in Red Deer, to affect positive change for refugees globally and locally.

    • HUB from 10am – 2pm : Art activities and drumming
    • Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery from 1pm – 4pm : Showing two movies about refugees
    • Festival Hall from 4.30pm – 7.30pm : Panel Speakers, free community dinner, and performance by local refugee children

    In partnership with Central Alberta Refugee Effort, Catholic Social Services, Central Alberta Immigrant Women’s Association. Cultural Heritage Society, Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery, the HUB on Ross, Red Deer Local Immigration Partnership, and Lacombe Community Refugee Effort.

    About Central Alberta Refugee Effort: C.A.R.E. was formed in 1979 by a group of concerned citizens who wanted to assist with the settlement of Indochinese refugees fleeing the aftermath of the Vietnam War. A year later, C.A.R.E. became a registered non-profit society. In 1982 it received status as a charitable organization. Since our founding, our mission has been to assist in the settlement and integration of immigrants and refugees in the community.

  • You couldn’t have written a better script!  When the Central Alberta Dream Home Lottery Grand Prize was drawn at noon Wednesday, the winners were just around the block!  A police officer sleeping after a busy night shift must have thought he was still dreaming when he replied to a string of phone messages he’ll never forget.  His wife, a social worker at a local high school had just left to return to work when he called her back.  They won the Dream Home and they could go see it right away.  It was took them about a minute to arrive.   Here’s what happened…

    It was an honour to experience this moment with the crew from the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre!  We’d like to share it with you.

    “Royalty” on the dance floor!

  • It was not easy for a shy Rhonda Hamill to take on the 2019 Celebrity Dance Off.  Rehearsing and remembering hundreds of steps wasn’t even the hardest part.  Rhonda was NOT looking forward to performing in front of a sold out crowd at the Cambridge Red Deer Hotel and Conference Centre.  In fact the very idea petrified her.  But.. when the time to perform arrived, Rhonda and her pro partner Robin Berube practically lit the dance floor on fire.  Rhonda was also one of the winners on Saturday.. raising the most funds for the Friends of the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre.  After you check out this sizzling performance.. you might have to cool down with a Dairy Queen treat (the Hamils own Red Deer Dairy Queen locations).  Enjoy!

    My Story…

    “If it’s both terrifying and amazing, then you should definitely pursue it”
    I was born in Saskatchewan (go Riders!) but grew up in Alberta, moved to Red Deer 33 years ago when I married Rob. We have 3 children: Drew (Kaitlin), Justine (Alex) and Victoria.
    Our family has owned and operated the Dairy Queen’s in Red Deer for 52 years. Our business was a founding sponsor of the pediatric unit at the Red Deer Regional Hospital and has supported the Alberta Hospital, the Children’s Stollery Hospital, Festival of Trees in Red Deer and the Love of Children Golf Tournament. We also sponsor many sports teams and youth organizations in Red Deer.
    I recently did the Alberta Ride to Conquer Cancer and discovered the joy of cycling. I love hiking, running and going to the gym. I am active member of St Mary’s Parish and volunteer on parish council and various committees. I love the colour pink.
    I am terrified by the Dance Off but I’ll give my best for Friends of Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre.
