What we are working on 18 Wheels of Christmas Updated: Sat Nov. 14 2009 15:49:02 The "18 Wheels of Christmas" set up its 53 foot (around 16 metres) Christmas trailer at Douglas Square Mall Saturday for its annual collection. The transportation industry began the 18 Wheels of Christmas in 2002. The donations are for the Inter-Faith Food Bank of Calgary. The Food Bank says it's busier than ever with people looking for help. As of September, usage is up 40 per cent over September of 2008, and more than 74 per cent from September of 2007. Spokesperson Nollind Van Bryce says the Food Bank is seeing more two income families needing help and it has extended the number of emergency food hampers for people from six to eight. Last year, the 18 Wheels of Christmas raised $102-thousand in food and cash donations.

It is very likely residents will see ground work beginning this fall on the future site of the Badlands Community Facility. This week the Town of Drumheller sent out a request for tenders for a site project to build up the base of where the facility will soon be erected. “Tenders have been called for the placement of pit run gravel to be placed on the site of the facility, which is John Anderson Park,” said Drumheller CAO Ray Romanetz. On Monday morning a group of perspective contractors toured the site. Romanetz explains the goal of the project will be to raise the site approximately 1.5 metres, about the same height as the existing dyke north of the park, to the 100 year flood level. Romanetz says he expects it will be a quick turnover. “We have a really short tender close, and it is to close this coming Thursday, (November 5). We are hoping if we get suitable pricing in, we’ll be able to award it by Monday,” said Romantez. “The idea is we get the pit run in place this fall so that when we tender this project-probably in mid-February--the soil will be in place and it won’t delay the construction project.” The funds for the site work and pit run will be taken from the already approved budget for the Badlands Community Facility. NoradTrack’s Santa Clause The NORAD Tracks Santa Web site is the newest version of a public relations program by NORAD, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, involving the countries of Canada and the United States. Every year for over fifty years on Christmas Eve, NORAD has put out stories of how their powerful tracking systems, such as the Distant Early Warning Line (DEW Line), had detected Santa Claus leaving the North Pole to deliver his presents to children in North America, and in more recent years, around the world.

The 2009-2010 school year begins early with the first day of classes scheduled for Thursday, August 27th, 2009. This will be a full day of school. The early start is due to the World Skills Competition that will be hosted in Calgary in early September. Arrangements are being made to have all of our Grade 9 students visit the Stampede grounds to tour and take in the events. 2009 WORLDSKILLS COMPETITION VOLUNTEERS & TRANSPORTATION The world comes to Calgary from September 1st to 7th when it hosts the 2009 WorldSkills Competition. The Calgary Catholic School District strongly supports the WorldSkills event and encourages parents to support the event by volunteering. Over 1,000 competitors from 51 countries will be attending this event and given the magnitude of this event, numerous parent volunteers will be needed at schools to help out in a variety of roles. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact your school. Transportation for students to and from the 2009 WorldSkills Competition during school days will be provided. Please be advised that buses may experience delays that will affect the regular busing schedule due to increased traffic volume in and around the event.
