Honouring leadership

At our Leadership Recognition Event on June 28, we inducted CHRIS W. GOOD  into the Deer Lodge Centre Foundation Honour Roll.

Mr. Good is a past chair and member of the Deer Lodge Centre Foundation Board of Directors and co-founder of our Charity Golf Classic, which raises funds annually to support patient and resident care. Chris was also chair of the capital campaign that raised $1 million to support the construction of the Movement Disorder Clinic, which opened at Deer Lodge Centre in 2006.

The Deer Lodge Centre Foundation Honour Roll recognizes the remarkable contribution of a special member of our community to Deer Lodge Centre, the Deer Lodge Centre Foundation, or the Canadian military and our veterans—for and by whom this facility was originally established in 1916.

We also dedicated a room at Deer Lodge Centre to the late MARGARET MACKLING, a longtime Foundation supporter and Member Emeritus of our board.

Mackling (1923-2012, née Perfect) was an active supporter of the Deer Lodge Centre Foundation and a Member Emeritus of our Board of Directors. She served the Victorian Order of Nurses for 43 years as a staff nurse, supervisor and executive director. For 18 years she was also an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Manitoba’s faculty of nursing. After her retirement in 1989, she served on the boards of a number of health-related organizations and was recognized with numerous awards. Last night we dedicated a space at Deer Lodge Centre to Margaret in honour of her joie de vivre and her tremendous service to our community.
