The Alberta Historical Resources Foundation (AHRF) has made over $12,000 in scholarships available to Alberta residents who apply for two Heritage Carpentry courses offered at Olds College.
The two courses, Heritage Millwork – Mouldings and Trim, and Heritage Restoration Methods, are one week courses offered in partnership with Algonquin College, and offer specialized, accessible training that is not typically available in Western Canada. Students completing these courses will receive credit from Algonquin College as part of the Carpentry and Joinery – Heritage diploma.
Greetings, I hope everyone had a great winter holiday! Let me introduce myself, my name is Nikki Szakaly, and I am the current President of the Alumni Association. I graduated from the College in 2013 from the Land and Water program. I currently reside just outside of Red Deer and work at Deermart (Red Deer) as the Agri-Coach (agronomist) in the dealership.
I am excited to say the directors have been hard at work with our volunteers and have successfully reopened the museum. The Museum Committee and volunteers are doing an excellent job! This is great news for us and I hope you can stop by when you’re in town! We are also working hard at planning for Reunion 2017. Things are coming together quite nicely and I am looking forward to being able to attend for my first time! We have been working very closely with the College to get involved with some more volunteer opportunities. If you are interested in volunteering as part of our Alumni please get into contact with me through the alumni email or call the office and leave a message. I am looking forward to spending some time with our new directors and utilizing the experience that they bring to the table.
