Francoise’s Feature

May 11, 2016

Hi Everyone,

On a beautiful sunny day, we should all be very thankful for being safe and having our families and homes intact. Our thoughts go out to all the evacuees of Ft McMurray – I cannot even fathom what they have gone through and what they will continue to go through for some time. The fear those poor people must have felt. Please do whatever you can to help.

Thank you to the members who worked at our booth at the Trade Show in Morinville. We were able to touch base with members and recruited a few more. The three winners of the draws were very pleased with their prizes.

At our meeting in April, Forest Tillapaugh was appointed interim Zone Director for Zone 12 – the Town of Legal. Rick deChamplain, a Past President stepped forward to be a Zone Director for the Town of Legal as well. Rick was appointed at the May 10th meeting. Our goal is to have two Zone Directors in each zone.

On Thursday May 5, 2016, Dan, our Communications Director and Zone 9 Director, resigned his positions effective May 10, 2016. Dan replaced Harold and continued and expanded on the work Harold had done. It is a credit to both that our membership records are current and well organized.

We thank you Dan and we appreciate all the time and effort you gave to both positions.

We have found a temporary replacement for the position of Communications Director. As always seems to happen, when we need help someone steps up to the plate.

Again, we have received a little “help from a friend” as we have found a very knowledgeable person to help us out. The Sturgeon Rural Crime Watch Association telephone will be cancelled for the time being but we are looking into a system whereby all our members will be included. Please be patient with us – it is quite a learning curve but we will make the transition as smooth as possible.

Both the Communications Director and Zone 9 Director positions are now open and we are actively looking to fill them. If anyone is interested please contact me at president@sturgeonruralcrimewatch.org The responsibilities of the Communications Committee Chairman are as follows:

Appointed by the Board, the Communications Committee is responsible for the timely reporting to Association members of local criminal activity as submitted by the RCMP. Information regarding activities such as meetings of the Association are also transmitted as required.

The member who chooses to fill the position of communications director will be provided with a MacBook Air laptop with all the files updated.

If you have any questions or comments I would love to hear from you. Please contact me at


Thank you,

Francoise’s Feature Part 2

May 13, 2016

Hi Everyone,

I had so much to tell you in my May Feature that I am doing it in two parts.  

Mayor Flynn and his wife attended our meeting and he presented us with a cheque for $2,000.00 on behalf of the Sturgeon County Protective Services. We greatly appreciate the donation and we thank them very much for their support. We continue to be well supported by County Councillors Susan Evans and Patrick Tighe.

Sturgeon County Protective Services was represented at our meeting by Ken Lauinger. He advised us that they have a new staff member and that we will see a member attend all meetings. Bill Willocks, a Peace Officer, attended our meetings for several years. Thank you, Bill, for all the reports and information you provided us.  

The following is information regarding office hours and telephone numbers for Sturgeon County Protective Services.

780-939-8418 is the office number – if it is after hours, please listen to the recording carefully as the cell number is provided. The hours for Protective Services are as follows;

The new Protective Services Building on Highway 37 and South on RR 252 will have their Grand Opening on Saturday June 11 from 1 – 3.  Any of our members who would like to attend are more than welcome.

Cpl. Clint Gulash, a new member to the Morinville RCMP Detachment, is our new liaison officer. We were pleased to meet him and look forward to working with him. Cpl. Gulash mentioned that a group such as ours is valuable to the RCMP in that we are the “eyes and ears” of the community.

As SRCWA members we are very aware to observe, document, and report any suspicious activity, people or vehicles in our areas. It is incredibly important that we call in our concerns. We may think it is insignificant but it may mean the difference between a crime being solved and not. Due to time constraints and manpower, our concerns may not be acted upon right away but they will be on file and dealt with in a timely manner.

The month of May brings the beginning of the parades and our first one is the Rainmaker on Saturday May 28th in St Albert. We will receive our parade number and line-up location on May 26th and I will forward the information. If anyone is interested in joining us you are welcome to do so.

If you have any questions or comments I would love to hear from you. Please contact me at


See you at the parade!

Thank you,

Francoise Meunier
