Volunteer Appreciation Christmas Dinner 2016

Our annual Christmas dinner and volunteer/sponsor appreciation night was held Dec 11. We were entertained by Visions Country Gospel, enjoyed a delicious turkey supper, recognized 10 volunteers  and 9 sponsors and had a visit from Santa.




Celebrity Breakfast 2016
The 10th annual Celebrity Breakfast sponsored by the Red Deer Motor Dealers Association was a great success with over 300 in attendance. Special Guests were David Pelletier, Jamie Sale, Jocelyn Peterman and Mayor Tara Veer.




The Law Enforcement Torch Run event Free Our Finest ran over 19-21 August in Red Deer. Thanks the community sponsors, Wal-Mart and the people of Central Alberta, almost $18000 were raised for Special Olympics. 



Spring Wind-up
Over 100 athletes and volunteers attended the annual spring wiener roast wind-up on June 14th at Rotary Park. The weather cooperated and everyone enjoyed the food, the fellowship and the prizes. A big thank you to those who cooked the wieners, served the hot dogs, chips and pop and organized the prize give away.
