Willow Creek Composite High band program in full swing
By Rob Vogt
Local Press Writer
For the first time in its
history, Willow Creek
Composite High School
has created an organization to build its band program and engage the
community.
Emma Ashcroft is in her
first year as the band
teacher at WCCHS, and
has big plans to build not
only a band program but a
tradition.
One of the key elements
in the plan is a band parents association which was
started at the beginning of
the school year.
“Our band parents are
really, really dedicated,”
Ashcroft said.
The purpose of the association is to promote the
band program and support it with fundraising,
trips, and festivals.
“The band parents get
the input,” Ashcroft said.
That means parents can
offer their feedback on
everything from band uniforms to trips band students may go on.
“They support me, I
support them,” Ashcroft
said. “We want to make
(the band program) bigger
and better.
“(To) get the best musical experience for these
kids.”
Trips and festivals are
not just trips though,
Ashcroft emphasized, they
are adjudicated, meaning
they are judged where students can receive feedback
on their efforts.
The most recent trip was
to Camp Caroline. It was
another first, as it brought
together students from
three local schools, West
Meadow and WCCHS in
Claresholm, and J.T. Foster
School in Nanton, where
Ashcroft also teaches.
The band parents association is still in its infancy.
It has a treasurer, but is
still looking for a president.
However, they have already hosted their first
fundraiser, a silent auction
at the Christmas band
concert on Dec. 9, which
they would like to become
a tradition at Christmas
time.
Ultimately, the association would like to become
a registered society, which
would open up even further fundraising possibilities.
Ashcroft said everyone is
welcome to become a part
of the association.
“It’s all about supporting students in their musical (journey),” she said.
As for the band program
itself, the goal is for students to start in Grade 6 at
West Meadow Elementary
School, and progress all
the way through to Grade
12 at WCCHS.
“It becomes a tradition,”
Ashcroft said. “They know
what to expect.”
Another part of the
band program is a community jazz band.
It brings together students from all grades, in
what is called an enhanced
curriculum option, and
members of the community, such as Leona
Koziarski and John
Vandenbeld who play
French horn; Peter Weeks,
who plays bass guitar; and
Morris Beebe, who plays
trumpet.
Some of the students
are not even currently taking band.
“They’re just in it for the
experience because they really enjoy it,” Ashcroft
said.
The long-term vision is
to have junior and senior
jazz bands.
The community jazz
band practises just one
hour a week, and they play
everything from funk and
swing to rock and roll.
Ashcroft’s message to
the jazz band is simple.
“We need to be ambassadors for band,” she said,
noting the numbers are
still growing. “We’re small
but we’re mighty.”
The jazz band has been
getting out into the community, most recently performing at the seniors’
centre.
“These kids are so musically talented,” Ashcroft
said. “And they need an
outlet.”
MUSICAL VISION - Emma Ashcroft, music teacher
at Willow Creek Composite High School, introducing
the Grade 6 band at the West Meadow Elementary School
Christmas concert on Dec. 18. Ashcroft envisions a band
program spanning Grades 6 to 12, including trips, festivals,
a community jazz band, and a band parents association.

National president of Canada visits Stavely Elks lodge
By Rob Vogt
Local Press Writer
It’s been a busy year
for the national leader
of the Elks lodge of
Canada, as he has visited dozens of communities offering his support
and guidance.
Duane Felt, the Elks’
grand exalted ruler, paid
a visit to the Stavely
Elks and Royal Purple
on Dec. 16, where he
discussed what the Elks
do and heaped praise
on the local lodge.
Felt was installed as
grand exalted ruler in
July, for a one-year
term.
He spent August
preparing for the next
year and then hit the
road.
“My wife and I have
been on the road since
September,” he said.
“It’s basically a year of
travel, seeing how the
lodges are doing.”
In October they travelled to Manitoba and
Saskatchewan, as well
as Yellowknife and
Iqaluit.
November was spent
in British Columbia,
followed by a tour of
Alberta.
Recently, Royal Purple
lodges across Canada
have become members
of the Elks, so part of
Felt’s tour has involved
installing these new
members and giving
them their charters.
That was one of the
duties he performed in
Stavely during his visit.
Felt’s ties to the
Stavely Elks go back
years, when he marched
with them at conventions from 1999 to
2001.
“I know those guys
really well,” Felt said,
adding he attends various events put on by
the Stavely Elks and
Royal Purple including
the annual oyster feed
and lobster feed.
“It’s a lot of cama-

raderie,” he added.
There is also a lot of
hard work and dedica-
tion to the community,
and Felt said the Stavely
Elks’ claim to fame is
their size.
“They are the largest
lodge outside of a city
in Canada,” he said,
noting their membership of more than 180
makes them the fourth
or fifth largest lodge
overall.
“They’re busy here,”
he continued.
That activity, which
includes the annual
pheasant hunt as well
as other functions, has
raised more than
$350,000 over the last
10 years.
The Elks have contributed a further
$50,000 to the national
charity, the Elks’ and
Royal Purple Fund for
Children, which assists
those with speech and
hearing challenges.
Felt noted the Stavely
Elks have accessed this
fund to help local children in need.
He also pointed out
the Stavely Elks have
contributed almost
50,000 volunteer hours
over the last 10 years.
The message they present is simple.
“Go out and contribute, but you have to
have fun doing it,” Felt
said.
The Stavely Elks do a
lot of fundraising and
catering, and other service in the community,
making them a national
leader in the time they
commit.
“It’s definitely higher
than just about every
lodge,” Felt said.
Part of that success
can be attributed to
something lodges in
other communities
struggle with.
“They bring in young
members,” Felt said.
And, he noted, the
Elks and Royal Purple
work well together in
Stavely.
“Overall everybody’s
there to help this community and help out
the kids,” Felt said.
