  • December 3, 2018 – Red Deer, AB – The Red Deer Symphony Orchestra (RDSO) is set to perform for a full house on December 8, 2018. A Choral Christmas, featuring local Choirs Red Deer groups Soliloquy and iHana, has been masterfully programmed to bring down the house and have every person in attendance leave ready to embrace the holiday season.

    The RDSO’s Music + Explorers will be making another public appearance at the start of the concert, performing this time with both the RDSO and members of Choirs Red Deer. As part of this el Sistema inspired after school program, the Explorers learn about different social issues that exist within the community and then leverage their talents and performances to raise awareness and community support for an issue. This go around, the Explorers are asking concert patrons and the general public to bring a non-perishable food item with them to the RDC Arts Centre on December 8, 2018, to support the Red Deer Food Bank in their quest to address food security in the community.

    “I can hardly wait for everyone to see their performance that they’ve been working so hard at perfecting. These kids are just amazing. They are excited to see how much they are able to collect for the food bank but even more nervous to be performing for a full house. This should be spectacular way for them to see how they can directly and positively impact the community they live in through the arts,” says Chandra Kastern, Executive Director of the RDSO.

    In addition to gathering support for the Red Deer Food Bank, the RDSO will be making a special announcement at the concert. In having reported a record deficit at the end of their 2017-18 fiscal year, the organization has been doggedly gathering community support and will be introducing their official 2018-19 Season sponsor to the audience at Saturday’s performance. “We are excited to be a part of building the arts in Red Deer,” says Nate Rempel, partner at Alair Homes Red Deer, “it important to us to actively contribute to our community and I can’t think of a better way to do this than to step up and support the only professional performing arts organization in the region.”

    “There are a lot of similarities between craftsmen and musicians, when you think about it. They’re all artists in their own right,” says Cam Baldwin, RDSO President, “I hope that by setting the example of how such a curious partnership can be a winning combination that Alair Homes’ generous support of the RDSO inspires other businesses and community partners to follow suit – we have aggressive revenue goals to meet this year and need our community to rally around us to accomplish them.”

    RED DEER SENIOR RUSTLERS DEFEAT MORINVILLE KINGS

    The Senior Rustlers hand Morinville Kings first regulation loss of season

    The Red Deer Senior Rustlers are back in the win column following a 3-2 win over the NCHL-leading Morinville Kings on Saturday, becoming the first team to do so in regulation this season.

    Coming off a narrow 4-3 loss to the Kings on November 24, the Rustlers came out of the gate with a three-goal first period, with two goals from Connor Patchett and another from Ty Berkholtz. Berkholtz added an assist on both Patchett goals to finish the game with three points, giving him the team lead with 14 points on the season.

    The Kings finally solved Rustlers netminder Brett Bothwell late in the second period, and would add another with a two-man advantage in the third, but the Rustlers shut the door the rest of the way to preserve the win.

    Special teams were the difference maker for the Rustlers, who went 2-for-5 on the powerplay, and an impressive 7-for-8 on the penalty kill, including a big five-on-three kill in the opening minutes of the game.

    “This was a huge win for us, both in the standings, and mentally,” said Bothwell, who made 30 saves for his fourth win of the season. “We’ve faced some adversity over the past month, but tonight was an opportunity to bounce back and make a big statement against one of, if not the top team in the league, and we did just that.”

    The Senior Rustlers improve to 7-3 on the season, and stayed perfect at home with their fifth straight win at the Penhold Multiplex.

    The Rustlers are back home for the last time in 2018 on Saturday, December 15 for another important match-up against the Eckville Eagles, who also sit near the top of the NCHL standings. Game time is 7:30pm. The 2018 portion of the season closes out in Sylvan Lake on Friday, December 21 against the Pirates.

    Christmas Bureau Delivers A Hamper Full of Celebration to 1000 Red Deer Families

  • If there’s one place in Red Deer that best resembles Santa’s Workshop it has to be the Christmas Bureau. Many weeks before the big day the donations start to arrive.  Christmas gifts, food, and money will all be donated… stored, sorted, displayed… and parcelled up for their trip to over one thousand homes in the area.  They say the Christmas Bureau helps at least one family on every street in town.

    As you might imagine the days before Christmas can be quite hectic as everything comes together at once.  All the gifts are dispersed through the city to be wrapped and stored under Christmas trees waiting for this special morning.  All the food and goodies are sorted and placed in over 1000 boxes.  Then with a real sense of excitement and urgency, hundreds of people file politely into the Red Deer Christmas Bureau.  For two straight days over 500 Christmas Food hampers are presented to deserving families who’ve arrived to pick them up.

    Thousands of Central Albertans support the Red Deer Christmas Bureau in a variety of manners.  Red Deer… this is the result of your generosity, your time, and your love for your neighbours.  Thank you and Merry Christmas!
