The Heritage Group sometimes receives notes of thanks from its awards recipients.
Read below how your generous donations can make a difference, and consider giving today.

The Heritage Group’s purpose is to provide a forum that is of mutual benefit to Red River College and its retirees. The group advocates for RRC retirees and organizes monthly events and social activities as well as a “field trip” and lunch each May as an annual wind-up.
The group produces a bi-monthly newsletter from September to May and operates a blog, which contains information about College events and retirements, Heritage Group activities as well as current and former employee passages.
