Array

Red Deer residents are encouraged to get involved in Garage Sale for Shelter to be held on May 12 in support of Central Alberta Women’s Emergency Shelter. Participants can host their own garage sale with all or some of the proceeds going to CAWES. For a $25 registration fee, people will get a garage sale kit that includes signage, pricing stickers, tips for a successful garage sale, free barbecue at the end of the day, lots of advertising, and a map distributed community wide directing shoppers to the sales. Or for $25, people get both the garage sale kit and rent a space at the Garage Sale for Shelter in the parking lot of Royal LePage Network Realty, at 3608 Gaetz Ave. For more information, call Darlis Bachusky at Royal LePage at 403-358-4981.


An update on the $1.5-million permanent history exhibit at the Red Deer and District Museum Society will follow the society’s annual general meeting on May 9. Anna Robertson, interpretive planner, will give an update on the 2013 project after the regularly scheduled meeting ends. The permanent exhibition’s footprint is pegged at 4,200 square feet, approximately one-half of the existing gallery space. The remaining 3,300 square feet of gallery space will support the changing exhibit program. The museum and art gallery is set to open the exhibit by March 2013. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. For more information, call 403-309-8405.


The Performers Showcase of the Kiwanis Performing Arts (Music Festival) was placed under Sunday’s listings in the What’s Happening page on Thursday. The event actually takes place on Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. at Living Stones Church and features the top performers who have been invited to perform in the showcase.
