ReDiscover Red Deer – COVID-19 Response
The good people at Troubled Monk are at it again. Faced with a challenging stretch due to the COVID-19 economic downturn Troubled Monk got creative. Having heard about other breweries who started using brewing equipment to produce hand sanitizer, Charlie Bredo decided that would be the right move for Troubled Monk as well.
Being the community minded folks that they are, Troubled Monk decided this would be a good opportunity to give back. While providing hand sanitizer to local businesses desperate for a supply, they’ll also be providing hand sanitizer to a few fortunate non-profits.. for free!
If you’re with one of those businesses or non-profits desperate for hand sanitizer you can get more information at [email protected].
If you need some for home, keep your eye on Todayville.com and Troubled Monk social media channels. They hope to have good news for you later in March.

Former student lovingly remembered by classmates
From Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools
A former Father Henri Voisin School student, Julie Burke, was lovingly remembered today through an outdoor blessing and dedication ceremony.
The Julie Burke Memorial Bench was unveiled to the Father Henri Voisin School community and blessed by Father Jan. Julie’s family, division senior administration and Grade 5 student leaders were in attendance in a socially distanced manner.
The memorial bench will be a friendship bench for students.
Julie’s former Grade 4 teacher, Jessica Maloughney, fondly remembers Julie as a girl who was full of kindness and bravery, despite her illness, and says that the bench will, “be a symbol of Julie’s love and bravery. Even though Julianna is no longer here with us, she lives on in all of our hearts. When a student is brave enough to sit on the bench, waiting for a friend – Julie will be there with them. When one of you sees someone sitting on this bench, and invites them to play – Julie will be with you too.”
Father Henri Voisin School Principal, Jeff Tuchscherer, added, “we feel extremely blessed and privileged to have been provided this bench by the Burke family. It will honour Julie’s memory and provide a powerful reminder of the value of friendship, as well as the importance of bravery. Present and future students will vastly benefit from this legacy of a child that lived her life with steadfast love in her heart for all.”
The Julie Burke Memorial Bench faces the school playground and will serve as a reminder to all the students at Father Henri Voisin School that nothing is more important than friendship and kindness, just like Julie believed.
Father Henri Voisin School serves over 385 Pre-Kindergarten – Grade 5 students in Red Deer. As a learning institution, Father Henri Voisin School is committed to serving students with a complete offering of learning opportunities delivered within the context of Catholic teachings.
