Thanks to LEADRS program

You may not have realized that when you are doing your errands or driving to and from work, your good driving skills could translate into financial support of some really great groups and programs.

For the past year, the Neighourhood Watch Program has been one of the recipients of the funds distributed by the LEADRS Program.

We are very thankful for their continued support of our program!

You may have seen them at intersections all around the city.

They are recording whether or not seatbelts are being used. Are drivers using their cellphones? Are signals being used when turning or changing lanes?

If the criteria is met, they contribute $200. Quarterly, these contributions are distributed to Neighbourhood Watch, the three high school councils, Red Deer College Student Association and the Golden Circle.

You may not have realized that when you are doing your errands or driving to and from work, your good driving skills could translate into financial support of some really great groups and programs.

We wish to thank Doug Taylor and the other dedicated volunteers for their efforts to create safer driving conditions for everyone in Red Deer.

We encourage residents to stop by the LEADRS Program booth at the market on Saturday mornings to get more information about the program and the statistics they have gathered.

Respectfully,
