Students from Red River College’s School of Hospitality and Culinary Arts served up a pre-holiday feast to guests at Siloam Mission today, preparing hundreds of turkey dinners donated by the Manitoba Turkey Producers and Granny’s Poultry Cooperative Ltd.
Under the guidance of Culinary Arts instructors Chef Scott Ball and Chef Gordon Bailey, students cooked and served approximately 18 turkeys (more than 400 pounds worth), along with traditional vegetable side dishes, sauces, gravy and dessert.
Our deepest condolences go out to family and friends of Phyllis Barich, who left us way too soon not long after having suffered a hemorrhagic stroke. Phyllis came to Red River in 2002 and assumed responsibility for operations at EDC in 2005. She was also the contact person for library services to our regional campuses, visiting them on a regular basis. Phyllis was a valued colleague and a staunch friend. She tirelessly promoted the value of libraries and the strength of her library team, building relationships designed to meet the needs of the College community. Her warmth and outgoing nature earned her a place in many hearts. She will be sorely missed. Under the circumstances, donations in her memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba would serve to honour her commitment to wanting to ensure a coordinated response to strokes, which does not now exist in Manitoba.

Heritage Group Meeting of October 16, 2014
By Leslie Walsh
Chief Devon Clunis of the Winnipeg Police Service shared a personal, informative, and inspirational story to an appreciative audience of about 30 RRC retirees at the Notre Dame Campus for this month’s meeting.
Devon grew up in a small village called Harmony Vale in Jamaica that didn’t have any electricity or running water, but his mother had a vision for her family. While she moved to Winnipeg, he remained with his grandparents until he came to Canada at age 11. He said he had never been cold before he arrived that day. It was September 15, 1975…little did he know.
