Darryl Schultz has retired from a General Dentistry practice in Camrose. He currently is consulting for the Alberta Dental Association and College and is involved in farming. Darryl believes that the Battle River Community Foundation allows an individual to leverage what time and money they have available, to have a positive impact in the lives of people in our community for time to come.
Marshall Wideman, owner of Wideman Paint and Décor, calls the Foundation a good fit for his personal philosophy. “My family taught me to support the community that supports us,” he explains. “That’s something that I believe in.” Marshall says the idea of investing dollars and using the income to support the community makes sense. “If we want our communities to stay strong, we need to support local causes on an ongoing basis, not just for the moment. That’s exactly what the BRCF is all about!”
