Deaf education

The public is invited to attend a lecture on Wednesday concerning a portion of the development of deaf education in Canada. The lecture by Stephane Perreault, the head of the history department at Red Deer College, begins at 7:30 p.m. in the west wing of the college library. The lecture is part of the RDC Homegrown series which offers college staff a chance to connect with the community. Admission is free and snacks will be available.


Evening of the Arts

Notre Dame High School in Red Deer has an Evening of the Arts planned for 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 24. Visual art and photography will be on display, to complement the sensational sounds that will be heard from the jazz band and choir, along with the stunning performances from dance and drama students.


Social Credit to hold AGM

The Alberta Social Credit Party will hold its annual general meeting at the Innisfail Legion, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., on Saturday. Breakfast, lunch and a presentation on biofuels is included for a meeting fee of $25 and a $10 party membership.

“Now, more than ever, we need representatives in the legislature who will stand up for an Alberta for all Albertans,” says party leader Len Skowronski. “It’s a shame that the Progressive Conservatives are giving away our resources and the control of our economy to the big oil and power companies.” For more information, call 1-780-416-0297.
