plans

Updated plans for a new multi-use and aquatics centre in Red Deer will be laid out for public scrutiny on Monday. Members of the Central Alberta Aquatic Centre will present a video and discuss plans for the project. Anyone interested in learning more is asked to attend the Black Knight Inn from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.


Members

sought

The Red Deer Catholic Education Foundation is looking for community members to serve on its committee. Catholic trustees voted to expand the committee from four to 12 community members and from two to three trustees to cover all of the work that needs to be done. The Red Deer Catholic Regional School Division approved the foundation last March as a way to fund scholarships for Catholic students and put money toward projects in Catholic schools around Central Alberta. The division hopes to collect contributions from individuals, agencies and corporations in Central Alberta through sponsorships, grants and endowments. Anyone who is interested in volunteering for the board can phone 403-343-1055 for more information.
