Home front – Feb. 28


Those looking for other forms of photo identification or need photo identification for legal purposes are encouraged to attend an upcoming clinic. A photo ID clinic on March 15 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. is being put on by the Central Alberta Community Legal Clinic. It offers free affidavits of identification that are notarized by a lawyer. While this identification does not replace government identification, it helps people access services during the time they are replacing identification cards, like a social insurance number card or birth certificate. To book an appointment, call 403-314-9129 or email info@communitylegalclinic.net. More information can be found at www.communitylegalclinic.net.

Sylvan Lake and District Lions Club are hosting their annual Flight Night with proceeds going towards sending children with disabilities to summer camp. Tickets are $100 per couple and that includes dinner, dance and a gift provided by a local business. One lucky person will also win the grand prize of a $1,000 travel voucher. This year’s theme will invite people to dress up to the style of the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s, with entertainment provided by jazz musician Eric Allison and his quartette. The event takes place on Saturday, March 10, at the Sylvan Lake Community Centre. Tickets are available by contacting 403-887-3776 or 403-887-1943.

A Red Deer College Motion Picture Arts film retrospective will be screened at the Galaxy Theatre at 7 p.m. on Thursday. Tickets are $10 at the door. An incorrect date was previously run in the Advocate.
