Volunteers invited to apply for Centennial Committee

  • Aug. 24, 2010 7:15 p.m.

The search is on for local citizens who would like to lend a helping hand in planning Red Deer’s centennial in 2013.

Red Deerians are invited to put their name forward to sit on the Centennial Celebrations 100th Anniversary Steering Committee.

Officials say the Centennial Celebration in 2013 will provide an opportunity to not only celebrate Red Deer’s past but also to reference the present and envision the future of the City.

The Centennial Committee will consist of nine representatives from Red Deer and requires three citizens for the committee. There will be a number of areas to get involved in — the committee will work on funding applications, arranging a promotional campaign and organize and work with the community and City staff to coordinate the events and activities which will be the basis of the Centennial Celebration.

“We see the overall goal of the Centennial Celebration as an opportunity to raise Red Deer’s profile and to enhance a sense of community and civic pride amongst our citizens,” said Sheila Bannerman, president of the Central Alberta Historical Society.

“This is a great volunteer opportunity within the community for those that are interested.”

Anyone interested in applying for a volunteer position is invited to submit a completed application form by Sept. 10 and send it to Legislative & Governance Services which is located on the second floor of City Hall.

They can also fax the materials to 403-346-6195.

For more information about the Centennial committee or eligibility requirements, those interested can call 403-342-8132 or check out www.reddeer.ca.
