We asked several members of the Deer Lodge Centre Foundation Board of Directors why they support Deer Lodge Centre. These are their answers.


Making Lives Better: Ron Roberts 1

“An opportunity to give back”

Ron Roberts
Shippam & Associates

I have been involved with the Deer Lodge Centre since 2008 when I was asked to join the DLC Foundation’s Charity Golf Classic Committee. The Classic has been an extremely successful event that raises tens of thousands of dollars for the foundation every year. Shortly after joining the committee I was asked to tour the facility, and this is when I realized the vast number of programs and services the centre offers. Deer Lodge Centre not only cares for veterans; it is the largest rehabilitation and long-term care facility in Manitoba, with a number of inpatient and outpatient programs. In 2014/15, Gordon Fardoe and the foundation’s board of directors invited me to join. I knew this would be an excellent opportunity to give back to the centre and the patients and residents who call it home. I am proud to say that, along with a great team of board members, generous donors and our fundraising events, we are working with the Deer Lodge Centre to make a difference. We truly are “Making Lives Better”.
