A story in Saturday’s Advocate had some incorrect information about a Veteran Affairs Commendation to a Red Deer man. Sam (Sietze) VanGunst was one of 11 people from the Prairie provinces who earned the commendation. VanGunst was recognized for his service to war veterans. VanGunst, who is a retired Canadian Forces veteran, earned his commendation for his many services to the care and well-being of war veterans and to the remembrance of their contributions, sacrifices and achievements. He is an active member of the Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry Association.
In Monday’s Advocate, it was inaccurately reported what the Red Deer Symphony received in grant funding through the Alberta Foundation for the Arts. The Alberta Foundation for the Arts grant was reduced by a third over the past three years — to $54,000 from a previous $87,000 in 2010-2011.
