Million-dollar SET FOR LIFE win in Red Deer!

Alice Bilinski was sure her eyes were playing a trick on her after she uncovered three SET FOR LIFE symbols on her $5 SET FOR LIFE ticket and won $1 million.

“I had a really hard time believing that I won,” she said. “It didn’t feel real to me. I felt like I was walking around in a fog for days after scratching my ticket.”

Although it took a little time to get used to the idea of winning the lottery, Bilinski said she has come up with a few ideas for her winnings.

“I have a couple of vacations in mind,” she said. “I have always wanted to go to the Kentucky Derby, and to see Greece. So I’ll definitely be taking a couple of awesome vacations soon.”

The winner also plans to share her windfall with a very special person.

“It’s important to me that I share of the money with my daughter,” she said. “I’m going to pay off her student loans – that’s something I’ve always wished I could do for her.”

Bilinski purchased her winning SET FOR LIFE ticket at Shefield & Sons, located at 283-4747 67 Street in Red Deer.

From Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools: Student receives Certificate of Achievement in dual credit from Bow Valley College

Bria Lajeunesse is the first student from St. Joseph High School to receive a Certificate of Achievement in Dual Credit from Bow Valley College in Calgary. This award will be presented to her during the graduation ceremony.

Dual credit programs allow high school students to take a post-secondary course or a series of courses and earn both high school credits, as well as college/university credentials. The Certificate of Achievement in Dual Credit is awarded to students who have completed four post-secondary courses during high school.

“Bria is an amazing young lady who has worked extremely hard to achieve this honour. We are very proud of her and wish her the best of luck as she pursues her goals at university,” said Principal, Graeme Daniel at St. Joseph High School.

Lajeunesse began dual credit courses in Grade 10 and completed four courses connected to practical nursing throughout her time in high school.  She averaged 91% in these four courses. “Bria is an outstanding student. We wish her the best of luck in her continued studies, where I know she will excel,” said Dual Credit Lead Teacher, Tracey Millar at St. Joseph High School.

You should visit Scott Subaru Passive House even if you’re not in the market for a new ride

From Scott Subaru: IT’S HAPPENED! 

We have moved into our new eco-friendly / energy efficient Passive House dealership and man are we happy! Although we are still in our ‘settling in’ process, we welcome you to come on down, have a nice hot beverage, and see just how big and beautiful this place is. We will be setting up a date for the Grand Opening once we have all our eggs in a cozy basket, so stay tuned for more information on that soon!
———————————–
The Scott Subaru Passive House is inspired by our partner, Subaru of Indiana, the automotive manufacturer that has achieved zero landfill status! Using an already positioned building, we strategically dismantled it piece by piece and saved everything we could for reuse and donation. For example, furniture donated, wires and cables salvaged to be recycled, and windows saved for re-use else where. This is an incredibly energy efficient dealership that is estimated to cost less than $200/year to heat and cool!

Outside we have permeable pavement for the landscaping. This eco-friendly, sustainable pavement helps reduce storm water run off, protecting it from solids and pollutants that travel to drainage facilities, and naturally filters the storm water turning it to ground water. Engineered to keep the building pristine while minimizing our energy use and environmental impact. 🍃🌎♻️
