CASASC at the Market at Red Deer

On Saturday May 27th the Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre attended the Market at Red Deer! The booth was graciously donated by Volunteer Central for the day. Weather was sunny and the volunteers helped raffle off a handcrafted wooden chair donated by John Dickins. All proceeds of the raffle went to helping the “No Secrets” program. As the crowds flowed by, people stopped to  participate in the I Respect Campaign by getting Made To Respect shirts as well as making I Respect signs. The Centre also raised awareness on Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Victims and Survivors of Crime Week and Respect Day! Overall the event was well attended and had many participators!

Representatives from the Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre in Red Deer attended the Grand Opening of Al’s Diner in the West Park Shopping Centre! The event took place Saturday May 13th and was extremely well attended. Special guest Matt O’Donnell from the Edmonton Eskimos came to meet customers and celebrate. As part of the Grand Opening, Al’s raffled off an autographed #66 Matt O’Donnell jersey to which all proceeds went to our Centre. We are thankful to have their support and to have taken part in such a great event!

“The International Women’s Day is a Reflection not a Celebration”

We want to create awareness and give everyone a chance to reflect on those women that were murdered and the ones that are still missing.

The empty shoes were once filled by women and children that filled our lives with love, happiness, and joy. In their absence, we need to reflect on their lives.

Take a moment to join us in reflection. We will be at Parkland Mall on March 8th, 2017 (International Women’s Day) from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. We will have our display in the old Sport Check.

Hope to see you there!

During that weekend, we had a photo shoot at the donated space of The White Room Gallery beside Sunworks downtown Red Deer, with published guest photographer Ashlee Krutzfeldt, owner and operator of AJKPhotography. Along with your professionally taken photo, we will also had Jesse Marriott and the staff of Utopia Hair and Lash Studio on site for glam touch ups before getting your portrait.

Requirements

– Must have worn a plain white t-shirt or tank top no logos or writing on shirt

Drum Circle Dog

Our drum circle will begin once again on July 13th.

Some great quotes:

“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.” Henry David Thoreau,

Current Research is now verifying the therapeutic effects of ancient rhythm techniques. Recent Research reviews indicate that drumming accelerates physical healing, boosts of the immune system and produces feelings of well-being, a release of emotional trauma, and reintegration of self.

Drum therapy is an ancient approach that uses rhythm to promote healing and self-expression. From the Shamans of Mongolia to the Minianka healers of West Africa, therapeutic rhythm techniques have been used for thousands of years to create and maintain physical, mental, and spiritual health.
