Why the name “Aspen Winds”?

How did we choose the name Aspen Winds?

It has been said that the early land surveyors of this region made specific mention of the rolling hills covered with Aspen trees that trembled and shimmered in the winds.

Just as the Aspen Tree is known for its far reaching root system and ability to grow quickly we believe our name represents the grounding that our Day and Residential Programs can provide for our clients and like the flexible branches of the Aspen, our programs allows for the individual needs of our clients to be met and to grow and shimmer in the prairie winds.

The Aspen Tree often sprouts many branches which also represents the multifaceted programming opportunities that our organization can provide in numerous centres within our region.

Like the Aspen Tree, Aspen Winds; representing clients, families, stakeholders and programs, continues to grow and thrive throughout our region allowing the prairie winds to help us shimmer and shine.

Gerry Archambault (Vice Chair)

Lorraine DeBaets (Secretary) – I began my volunteer time on the Board of “The Residence” as it fit my background in justice, social and victim services.  Over the years my life has been enriched by the participants, staff and fellow volunteers.  Notre Dame de Lourdes has always impressed me through its support and generosity.  A community that looks out for one another, lifts one another up and celebrates every person is successful.  This is what Aspen Winds is about – community, connection and compassion.

Holly Hamilton – When I was approached to become a board member of Aspen Winds I was really not aware of all the activities that took place in this organization. I continue to be amazed by the direct service providers, the executive directors, the families but in particular by the participants. When I started as a board member I thought my role would be to contribute to the organization however it is the opposite. The team at Aspen Winds demonstrates kindness, friendship, love, and  bring perfection to an
imperfect world.

RoseAnne Monchamp – In 2003 I was approached by Mountain Industries (Our former company name) to fill a mat leave for the activity position. I really enjoyed working with the clients and when I finished the term I was invited to join the board. I was on the board for about 14 years before the amalgamation with the Residence in which I stepped down because of the numbers. This year I was once again approached to join the board of Aspen Winds which I accepted as this is an important part of our community.
