    The Red Deer Rotary Club has named Terry Loewen 2018 Citizen of the Year.  Loewen is Vice President of Abbey Platinum Master Built, one of Red Deer’s largest home building companies.  Over the years he has used his professional skills time and time again to build support, and physical buildings for various community projects.  Starting with unique and impressive playhouses donated to the Festival of Trees, Terry moved on to larger and larger commitments.  Two massive projects stand out as incredible accomplishments.  In 2014 Loewen lead the charge for a complete overhaul of the facilities at Camp Alexo.  The summer camp has provided life changing experiences for Central Alberta youth for decades, and the original facility was in dire need.   Loewen recruited over 300 volunteers and tradespeople  to spend a weekend in what became known as Weekend Warriors for Camp Alexo.   Loewen also spearheaded a local group looking for relief for young people suffering various forms of trauma.  This has culminated in the the new Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre which offers co-ordinated supports for children impacted by various forms of abuse.

    Please see this short video profiling Terry Loewen and his role in these crucial projects.

    Todayville congratulates Terry Loewen, 2018 Red Deer Citizen of the Year.

    Saturday is Sockey Night in Red Deer!

    United Way Central Alberta is pleased to announce the TENTH ANNUAL Sockey Night in Red Deer in partnership with the Red Deer Rebels –Saturday, October 20 beginning 7pm at the ENMAX Centrium.

    For weeks United Way has been collecting socks, largely donated by chiropractors in Red Deer, to support a great cause this winter: warm feet for all! This event brings together sports fans of all ages to share in the fun by throwing socks on the ice during the second intermission.

    Sports fans can bring new pairs of socks or purchase them at the game for a chance to win prizes. All proceeds from sock sales go to United Way for investment in more than 40 community programs and services across Central Alberta.

    “This is a great event for our community to come together to help keep people warm through our cold Alberta winter” said Linda Wilson, Co-Chair for United Way Central Alberta.“This will be the 10th year Red Deer Rebels and United Way have partnered for ‘Sockey Night in Red Deer’ to raise funds for the United Way campaign as well as donating such a simpleitem ~ socks, which can have such a huge impact on some of our agencies’ clients.”
