    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.

  • 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!

  • Miss. G’s 7-5 class from St. Thomas Aquinas Middle School completed their Almsgiving Bake Sale Thursday with a total amount of $2736 raised for the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre!

    They were so excited to share their news of how much they raised since starting back in March!  Every Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday through out lent, the 7-5’s would bring in treats that they made at home.  They sold the goodies to the rest of the student body at lunch to help raise funds to donate to the Centre.

    Thank you to Miss Goranson for putting this all on for the CACAC, and to the 7-5 class for being apart of this and wanting to help other kiddos – you are amazing!
