Be loud and proud Red Deer.
The Red Deer 2019 Canada Games Bid committee wants residents to show their community spirit when the Canada Games Council pays a visit in August.
The Bid Evaluation Committee will be in Red Deer on Aug. 21 or 22 to determine whether the city has what it takes to host the games. They will look for ability, readiness and community commitment.
Lyn Radford, chair of the committee, says they will be calling on all Red Deerians to come out to show what the city has to offer.
“We know we have so much community spirit in Red Deer,” she said. “And we will provide ways for residents to get involved, come out, show support and get excited about the games.”
Red Deer’s bid committee will announce ways for residents to get involved in the coming months.
Shelley Gagnon, the city’s manager of Recreation, Parks and Culture, said showcasing what Red Deer has to offer is more than just venues and accommodations. “The bid committee wants to see that Red Deerians will be behind the games in every way if they were to choose us to host the 2019 Canada Winter Games,” she said.
