You may have heard that the Minister Of Education is threatening to take away funding from faith based schools. Why? Because they use words like”truth”. Freedom of choice is guaranteed by our Constitution. Please have a look at my column in this week’s Chestermere Anchor.
My column in the Chestermere Anchor. Our provincial and Federal Governments have failed us.
It was a bit cool in the morning but Mother Nature blessed the Chestermere Show N Shine with a great afternoon. Over 200 cars were on display and a bunch of money was raised for some great causes: Easter Seals Camp Horizon, the Chestermere Food Bank, and the Alberta Adolescent Recovery Centre. For those of you not familiar with AARC it is a privately funded organization that helps youth with addiction issues. Dr. Dean Vause, the founder of AARC, calls addiction “The Equal Opportunity Destroyer” and he’s right. It can happen to anyone. Easter Seals Camp Horizon provides an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors to people with disabilities, and anyone who lives in Chestermere knows the good work that the Food Bank does for our neighbours experiencing a rough patch in their lives.
Thanks to John Kittler from Dockside Bar and Grill, the title sponsor and the “voice” of the Show N Shine (and no, we didn’t get sick of your voice), the Lakeside Kruzers Car Club, the rest of the great sponsors, and all the exhibitors who paid to put their vehicles on display. As John said, without them “We would be looking at an empty field”. Thanks to all the volunteers who made things run smoothly.
Special thanks to everyone who showed up, bought 50:50 tickets from the “PinUp Girls”, and donated in other ways to these great charities. See you next year.
