Back Joined Pridefest's organizing committee
I'm a member of the Rocky Mountain Book Award Committee, an Alberta-wide reader's choice award for children based here in Lethbridge. Between Dec and May, I'll read 70-80 new Canadian books for grades 4-7 students to select the shortlist. Many schools and libraries in the province--and Lethbridge!--will sign up to participate, and the kids will pick the winner.
Joined the organizing committee for Pridefest 2016
I nominated the Piggyback Poutinerie for the Taking Care of Business Downtown Champion Award. In addition to looking after our stomachs with their delicious poutine, Dylan and Wendy are always looking out for Lethbridge's furry friends. They fundraise for organizations like Prairie Pitbull Rescue, and always have fresh water available for hot puppies in the summer.
Went to Edmonton to advocate to the provincial cabinet ministers for funding for projects that will benefit our city. ( Feb 2 and 3 )
In early December, I led the Christmas tree lighting at Lethbridge city hall by also kicking off the campaign to donate food and toys to the food banks. Its important to inspire others by leading by example. My December mayor's column was also focussed on the importance of giving and caring for others.
