It was wonderful to celebrate with a crowd of caring community citizens who helped close the 2016 campaign during our
Community Celebration Breakfast. Much more important than hearing the final tally of donations was to hear the impact that we're making with the money invested. We consider 2016 to be a success because we are able to maintain our investment level in the community, although slightly less money was raised through the annual campaign. Here's a
report from the Red Deer Express on the event.
A great-big thanks to our out-going Campaign Co-Chair Craig Curtis for his dedication and enthusiasm these past two years. He has made our organization so much stronger thanks to his leadership at the campaign table.
We're also delighted that Ken Johnston is staying on as Campaign Co-Chair for a second year, and that Linda Wilson will be joining him to lead the 2017 fall campaign.
Sybil Weekley is one of the many Red Deer Meals on Wheels clients.
"I am grateful for a very necessary service," said Sybil. "Not only for the meals, but because someone comes in every day during the week.They use my name. I have someone to speak to, some connection with the outside world. That's very important."
Special thanks to all of our sponsors who made the event a great success: Baymont Inn & Suites, Blue Sage Catering, Browns Social House, Collicutt Centre, ENMAX, Jump 360, London Drugs,
RAW Impressions Photography, Speedpro Signs,
Telus and Visions Electronics.
