Home front – February 8

Array

Hunters are encouraged to have the antlers of their prizes measured on Wednesday, Feb. 13. The Red Deer Fish and Game Association holds its annual antler measuring night at the Moose Lodge at 140 Petrolia Drive in Gasoline Alley east from 6 to 9 p.m. More information is available by calling Venny at 403-347-3767.


New Democrat MLAs will visit Red Deer on Wednesday to hear concerns about the upcoming provincial budget. Four MLAs are prepared to hear presentations from city councillors, school boards, business organizations, union locals, post-secondary institutions and cultural groups during the Broken Promises Budget Tour, which will visit six other cities this month.

“We’re expecting this budget to be full of service cuts that will hurt Alberta families and frontline workers,” said party leader Brian Mason in a release. The public is welcome to attend the session which starts at 2 p.m. in the Snell Auditorium of the Red Deer Public Library downtown branch. Albertans can also submit their thoughts on the March 7 budget online at www.albertandp.ca/budget2013.


Movies by Red Deer College student filmmakers will screen to the public Monday. Film Works is a one-night only viewing of works by fourth-year students in the Motion Picture Arts Applied degree program who acted in, directed and shot the five- to 20-minute films. Admission is $10 at the door at Galaxy Cinemas located in Gasoline Alley west.
