The Camrose Service Club Group is offering a Chase the Ace Progressive Raffle. Every 2-week event will feature a deserving charity to receive a portion of the ticket sales during that event as well as also supporting our major charity - the Hospice Society. Tickets and more information is available at CamroseChaseTheAce.org. Our current Featured Charity is:
 
FEATURED CHARITY – FLAGSTAFF FOOD BANK
 
The Flagstaff Food Bank will receive 20% of ticket sales from this event to purchase food, hygiene products and supplies in short supply.
 
Community support has allowed the Flagstaff Food Bank to expand from its beginnings in 2002 to purchasing their current building in 2010 and hiring a coordinator to manage food and supplies while coordinating volunteers.
 
The Flagstaff Region of East Central Alberta encompasses over 4,000 square kilometres. Open 2 days a week, the Food Bank can provide up to 64 food hampers each month to a clientele that is about 40% working adults, 20% seniors and 40% children. The Christmas Sharing Program in conjunction with other community agencies generates up to 140 Christmas Hampers serving 350 Flagstaff individuals.
 
The Food Bank is proud of the ability of the community to give a leg up to individuals and families finding it tough to make ends meet.

The 9-hole family friendly disc golf course in Jubilee Park offers two levels of play, beginners and those wanting more challenge. The course is available for free play, just bring your own disc. A great selection of discs are available for purchase at Sport Excellence.
 
The UDisc app for iPhone and Android is available as a free download. You can see the layout, record your score, find other disc golf courses as you travel and more.
 
The baskets are all in, tee box locations are marked and sign posts are installed. Concrete will soon be poured for the tee boxes and sign design is underway. Sponsorship of tee signs is available. Email CamroseDaybreak@gmail.com for more information.
Kidsport Camrose worked for quite some time to acquire valuable, lightly used sport equipment from Sport Central in Edmonton. A donation from the Camrose Swans & Roses Lions Club kickstarted funding a $2,500 donation to Sport Central for thousands of dollars worth of equipment.
 
A call for space to house the equipment and provide a venue to distribute that equipment to those in need was answered by Dianne Kohler at the Camrose Regional Exhibition (CRE) who offered space in their administration building. Rick Picher, Clarence Hastings and other members of the Men’s Shed stepped up as volunteers to organize and operate the distribution center, dubbed 4 R Kids (reflects the mission of Retrieve, Repair, Recycle, Redistribute) in conjunction with Kidsport Camrose.
 
Donations of shelving from the Real Canadian Superstore and Canadian Tire have been assembled and sport equipment is arriving for a planned August opening. City and county children and youth in need of equipment will be referred by community partners, including Kidsport Camrose, to receive equipment, at no cost. Kidsport Camrose also provides funding for registration in sports to further reduce barriers to participation.
 
Kristy Smith of Kidsport Camrose remarked ‘This has become an awesome partnership. Men’s Shed, CRE, Lions Club and many local businesses have made this possible’.
 
To learn more about 4 R Kids, registration funding and other activities of Kidsport Camrose email Camrose@Kidsport.ab.ca.
