March was a busy month in the Constituency. I had the pleasure to meet with contacts for the Camrose Association for Community Living to thank them and their team for the work they have done to keep their clients safe during COVID-19.
Minister Schweitzer joined the Camrose Chamber of Commerce meeting where all other chambers, business associations, Mayors, Reeves, counsellors and business people from the Constituency were invited to attend. The Minister gave an update with our plan forward.
A 50-50 draw for WHL and AJHL teams was conducted online and it was my honour to do pictures and videos to post on social media in order to help our local Kodiak’s team.
Helping local businesses is also a high priority for me. I met with Mr. Mikes and Eastside Marios in Camrose and La Piazza Donair & Sandwich in Viking and the Rusty Daisy in Daysland. While in Viking, I stopped in to the Carina for an update from the CAO. Donations of my favourite book continued at the Viking School and Jack Stewart School in Camrose, Sedgewick and Hardisty Public Libraries. Many people are thinking about changing their tires and I stopped into the Kal tire location in Camrose where we did an update posted to my social media pages.
Big news! Design dollars have been approved for a new Elk Island Catholic Schools In Camrose! This is big news for our community as the existing Catholic schools are at full capacity.
It’s not every day that you get to meet a celebrity but I bumped into Gord Bamford while at Overtime in Camrose and had the honour of welcoming our New Country Morning host, Scott, to town. I also had an opportunity to meet with Dane, one of our local RAP students, who is currently gaining some valuable knowledge at his placement with Rocky Mountain Equipment. Thank you to the employers who invest their time and money in training our youth!
While in Hardisty I stopped to snap a few pictures of the job opportunities that are available and shared these on my social media pages. I see that a number of people have viewed and shared these posts. I will continue to post opportunities as I come across them.
I appreciate the invitation from the Camrose & Area Family Resource Network to join them in their birthday celebration. For any business or organization who would like me to film a video or photos to help them promote their offering or cause, it is my sincere pleasure!
And finally, thank you to Pastor Bev from Messiah Lutheran Church and Father Joby from Saint Francis Xavier Catholic Church for extending Easter greetings to the community with me.
