County assists Bull Congress

Ne w

By Murray Green

Camrose County council agreed to help sponsor the 35th edition of the Canadian Bull Congress on January 21 and 22, 2022, but left the details up to administration. The County has been one of the strong supporters and major sponsors of the event since its beginning. However, the event was cancelled last year because of COVID-19 restrictions. “I move that council direct administration to finalize the details of the Signature Events Sponsorship Agreement with the Camrose Regional Exhibition for the 2022 Bull Congress,” said councillor Doug Lyseng, at the regular meeting on November 9. The 2022 sponsorship amount of $8,500 was set in the budget for 2021 (as the funds are dispersed in 2021). Due to COVID, the format of the Bull Congress has been adjusted and the CRE wanted some input from council on what the benefits of sponsorship (roles of the County as sponsor) will be. The sponsorship agreement between Camrose Regional Exhibition and Camrose County was made on October 28. “I would like to have the County sponsor Saturday, rather than Friday as they have in the past. Council can still help serve breakfast and they will have full sponsorship of the Pen of Three event,” said CRE executive director Dianne Kohler. “Because of COVID-19 and passport restrictions, I expect about a 20 per cent drop-off of attendees. That is standard across the board for trade shows and conventions. During our year off, we examined how we could improve things and make it fresh again. We want it to be the number one bull sale in the country,” she said. “We pulled out the children’s education program and that will be its own event in February.” The County will also arrange for coffee and treats to be served out of the ringside booth on Saturday. In return, Camrose County will receive a popup ringside networking booth and signage at the charging station for devices in the Garden Court, will put up pull-up banners and literature on coffee tables and have a booth in the main arena for the duration of event, will be the title sponsor for the Pen of Three Show, and will receive complimentary Taste of Beef Banquet tickets and complimentary show admission.

Wishes book launched By Murray Green

Eight Alberta romance writers have combined their talents to publish an eight-novel collection under a single title: Hugs, Kisses and Mistletoe Wishes. The idea started during the pandemic, when author friends held weekly Zoom meetings to share creative advice, educational moments and moral support. “Meeting in a virtual Christmas during last year’s lockdown, a plan to create a memorable volume of romance stories gained momentum,” shared local author Raine Hughes. “I’d never been part of a joint anthology before, but it sounded like a wonderful idea per those who’d been part of such fun projects before. I’m into fun, so I signed up right away and got to work. It was so exciting.” Romance novels can range from cozy to sexy, and follow the genre standards with historical, contemporary, western and fantasy. In keeping with the season, the eight writers decided to go with “sweet romance”, the kind of charming feel-good love stories that everyone from teens to grandmothers will enjoy. The group agreed on a giveaway price of 99 cents for all eight books in the digital collection–their gift to romance readers everywhere. Romance is the most popular fiction genre, with millions reading tales of love every day around the world (and contrary to popular opinion, 16 per cent of them are men). The collection is described as: “Straight from our hearts to yours, eight enchanting love stories to enjoy during the holiday season and all year long. Each contains a romantic ‘mistletoe moment’ and an uplifting, happily-ever-after conclusion.” “I love sharing the joy and romance, and the uplifting spirit of the season, with my readers,” said Hughes, who has written several other novels. “The Christmas anthology was a fun project for us and a great way to give something back to our readers everywhere.” Hugs, Kisses and Mistletoe Wishes is a Sweet Christmas Romance Collection. Celebrate the magical holiday season with this special gift straight from the authors’ hearts, eight enchanting love stories to cherish all year long. Rekindle your love of the holidays with these heartwarming romances.

Dealing with mobility challenges can be frustrating in itself; add to that barriers to accessing equipment, and it can greatly impact a person’s quality of life. Recognizing a need in Camrose and area for immediate access to mobility equipment, a group of volunteers have begun the process of initiating the Lending Place Battle River Region, a not-for-profit organization, aligned with the Canada Health Act, that provides mobility related equipment and services. The concept of materializing an organization began in 2004, with a support group for residents and families in long-term care, committed to needsidentification and working together in creative ways. Throughout the years, the group made every effort to align with the Canada Health Act and its five pillars: accessibility, affordability, appropriate, universality and portability. After a 2012 conference dedicated to Culture, Creativity and Place that brought rural people together to explore working together as Indigenous, Settler and New People, the

group became more focused on rural renewability. The work continued and began building off the model of the Lending Cupboard in Red Deer, eventually establishing the Lending Place Battle River Region (BRR) organization, which is a project of the Association for Life-wide Living (ALL) of Alberta, allowing access to charitable status. “The Lending Place Battle River Region would offer the short-term loan of necessary mobility equipment,” explained Lending Place BRR organizer Julie Girard. Working with the Red Deer organization has not only afforded the Lending Place Battle River Region access to the ins and outs of the process of setting up, but a lot of the structural processes including computer programs, tracking systems and administration of the organization. Recently Dawna Morey, director of the Lending Cupboard Red Deer, reached out to the Battle River Region organization, offering assistance with the starter equipment. “We can also work with the Lending Cupboard in Red Deer and other relat-

ed entities to get access to their inventory,” said Girard. Girard said that in order for the initiative to be successful, there must be a degree of sustainable funding. “At the end of the day, this initiative will be driven by community, which will help fund it,” said Girard, who added that conversation with other organizations and individuals within Camrose and area, such as Service Options for Seniors, Alberta Health Services, Camrose Chamber and local suppliers, has all been positive. “We have already started getting donations of equipment. Now we need a space to work out of and house the equipment. Initially a space of 1,000 to 1,500 square feet with water would be ideal.” Girard said that while Home Care Services does an amazing job at providing in-home care for those in need at their own comfort levels in their own homes, the Lending Place Battle River Region is filling other gaps.

“The Home Care system is on board with this initiative,” said Girard. “They are overwhelmed with hundreds of patients and they don’t have enough resources.” The equipment lended out by the Lending Place includes, but is not limited to, wheelchairs, walkers, canes, hospital beds, lifts, movable toilets, raised toilet seats and armrests, transfer benches, bath seats and grab bars. All the equipment taken in by the Lending Cupboard is disassembled (where feasible), put through a thorough cleaning and sanitizing process, repaired if able and necessary, and put back together, then inventoried. Equipment or other items deemed unusable do not become part of the Lending Place inventory. The need

For so many people who find themselves caring for loved ones and not wanting to place them in long-term care, the Lending Place is filling a need to ensure that the ones in need stay in their own homes, and their caregivers can provide for them in their homes with equipment specific to their needs. “Nearly 70 per cent of seniors live at home,” quoted Girard. “And they are looked after by the others, whether that be family, friends or inhome services.” The Lending Place Battle River Region organization’s mandate is to work with clients to create an environment where every person feels welcomed and valued, to implement processes and procedures that ensure client safety and satisfaction, and ensure that those who have mobility challenges have access to equipment that will meet their individual needs. Relating her own personal story of the need for accessibility to equipment, ALL president Jane Ross said that getting help that is needed often takes time. “Following Jack’s (Jane’s husband) discharge from hospital after a brain hemorrhage, many things were needed immediately,” remarked Ross. “When the items were not available locally, the Flewwellings of Red Deer introduced us to the Red Deer Lending Cupboard, and within two days, we had everything needed so Jack could come home to live.” Not only did the Lending Cupboard Red Deer provide the much-needed equipment, but they delivered it immediately to the Ross’s home outside of Camrose, eliminating what could have been a lengthy wait.

“Alberta Health Services has funds available to purchase equipment,” explained Girard. “But it has to be ordered and that can take anywhere from three months up to a year.” Lending Place fills that gap and in many instances, when a piece of equipment is only required for a short period of time, will inventory it out, then take it back, process it through stringent cleaning and sterilizing, then have it ready to go for another person in need. Other benefits

In addition to the benefits to those in need of equipment, the community will benefit from recycling existing equipment that is no longer needed and intercepting it, possibly ending up in landfill. “We want to work with municipalities to salvage and re-purpose mobility items as well,” noted Ross, explaining that the organization has a goal to work with municipal landfill organizations on educating the public on options for recycling equipment that can be used by the Lending

ger needed. “It is a win/win situation,” said Ross. Lending Place is also able to accommodate the growth of the needs of those requiring equipment. Camrosian Janet Enns related her own story about the need for such an organization for all ages. “My grandson, for a period of time at two years of age, when children are really developing their ability to pick up language, lost his hearing (and subsequently language skills), due to a hidden infection.” Through conversation with family and friends, the family discovered a treatment involving a software program to assist in learning language, speaking and hearing. “He is now in grade one and is very good with numbers, but he doesn’t understand letters, and didn’t speak or hear well. He has worked with speech therapists, which has helped, but he is way behind.” This software program, based on the work of neuroplasticity, requires the use of an iPad, which

Place, rather than disposing them in landfills. For those caring for someone requiring more long-term needs for equipment and ultimately purchasing their own, the Lending Place offers them an option of donating the equipment to the Lending Cupboard when it is no lon-

was difficult for the family to access. The Lending Place can provide items such as iPads that may only be required for short periods of time, saving the family the added expense at a time when it is needed most. Continued to page 8

Lending Place has no barriers Continued from page 6 Volunteers

The Lending Place will rely heavily on the goodwill of volunteers who can offer their expertise, skills and time in specific areas of interest to them and on their own time. “Volunteers can be, and often are, people who are retired from their professions, but want to give of their skills in a volunteer way,” said Girard. She cited examples of retired mechanics who come in a few times a week to repair equipment; carpenters who assist in building shelving for storage or ramps for those in need; computer savvy individuals who assist with the inventory and administrative processes; grant writers; fundraisers who assist with funding; and a slew of others willing to give of their time. “There are a lot of people with a lot of skills that can be tapped into,” said Girard. All about accessibility

Beyond the tangible aspect of the Lending Place to make necessary equipment accessible during crucial times in peoples’ lives, the mandate of the organization is directly in line with the Canada Accessibility Act that identifies the need for rethinking Canadian society and the imperative to remove barriers of many kinds. “The Canadian Accessibility Act has allowed for grants specifically for accessibility,” said Girard Following on the ALL mission statement of, “Inspiring creativity for health through our landscape, our communities and the arts”, the Lending Place Battle River Region, as Ross would say, “It’s the doing that does it”, is getting things done. On a final note, Girard said it is about building culture, creating connections and a mindset of working together to provide for communities.
