No Stone Left Alone began as a promise

  • No Stone Left Alone started as a promise made by a young girl to her mother in her last moments.

    Her mother told her, “Please don’t forget me on Armistice Day.” It’s a request that then 12 year old, Maureen Bianchini was unsure of how to fulfill. “I remember thinking Armistice Day, what does she mean?”

    In a series of 2 recent blogs, former CTV Edmonton Reporter and media consultant Serena Mah tells 2 compelling stories that resonate deeply on the eve of Remembrance Day. We hope you enjoy reading and learning about our rich history and the sacrifices made to ensure the freedom we enjoy today.

    Remembering Veterans Past and Present by Serena Mah 

    No Stone Left Alone Memorial Foundation is a non-profit organization working directly with our Canadian Armed Forces, educators, and students across the country to honour our military fallen in the Fields of Honour across Canada.

    They recognize the sacrifices of our military by placing a poppy on every headstone. Their goal is to educate and engage the next generation to raise awareness and funds for our Canadian veterans, serving soldiers and their families.

    2017 marks the 7th annual commemoration ceremonies for No Stone Left Alone Memorial Foundation.

  • Trevor Sopracolle went from watching the Celebrity Dance Off last year, to being front and centre this year!  Trevor was the first “Oil Man” in the Celebrity Dance Off.  Hopefully the first of many.  He’s also one of the toughest looking Travolta’s you’ll ever see.  Trevor and his pro partner Alex McPherson wrapped up the show with a brilliant choice of music from Grease.  “Olivia” was amazing.. and “John” turned the world upside down.  See for yourself. .. 

    My Story…

    I was born in Goodsoil, Saskatchewan and moved to Alberta when I was in grade 3 and spent most of my youth in Consort.

    I lost my Dad to cancer when I was in high school and so I grew up fast. At 17 I secured a loan for a 2-bedroom house with a dirt floor basement. To make ends meet, I worked as a tire technician at the local tire shop while attending high school. One of the only benefits of owning your own place in high school is having the coolest parties after the high school dances!

    I moved to Red Deer in 1999 at the age of 19 and began working at Fountain Tire. Not long later a local snubbing company hired me. Over a 10-year period I worked my way up becoming a senior supervisor overseeing most of the higher-class pressure jobs and many overseas projects. In 2008, Garrett Radchenko and I started Goliath Snubbing Ltd., and we haven’t looked back.

    I have also been blessed with the best kids a Dad could ask for. Being a single Dad with three kids under 8 definitely keeps me busy.

  • Good chance most people don’t think of dentists and fun at the same time.  Well then most people haven’t met Dr Isaac Day yet.  The Innisfail dentist and father of 6 certainly knows how to have a good time.  Day and pro dancer Jinelle Themig nearly brought the roof down at the Cambridge Conference Centre.. especially when they shocked the crowd with one of the riskiest tricks we’ve ever seen at this competition.  Bet you can’t watch this just once.  It’s too much fun!

    My Story…

    A competitive fundraiser for a great cause? I’m all in!
    I am the founder of Day Dental and we have the best dental team and patients ever. With their support, we will keep the Mirror Ball trophy where it belongs…in Innisfail!
    While Innisfail has been home for my family and me for the last 7 years, I was born and raised in Edmonton where I completed my Bachelor of Medical Science and my Doctor of Dental Surgery. After working in Edmonton, my wife and I packed up our kids and moved to Central Alberta.
    I enjoy different experiences, personally and professionally, from working in a cosmetically driven dental practice in Edmonton to being the dentist at the Bowden Prison. When a new experience presents itself, the answer is YES. So when the opportunity to participate in the Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off presented itself, I knew I couldn’t turn it down.
    I am looking forward to helping this great cause, and to trying something new and exciting, and most definitely out of my comfort zone!
