Police Foundations students at the Owen Sound Campus invite members of the local community to drop by the campus on Tuesday, Jan. 27 to sign a book of condolences for the family of slain RCMP Const. David Matthew Wynn of Alberta.
Const. Wynn was fatally shot Jan. 17 while investigating the theft of a vehicle in St. Albert. RCMP Auxiliary Const. Derek Bond was also shot and injured and is recovering at home.
Police Foundations students will forward this book of signatures and messages to Const. Wynn’s wife and children. They hope community members will take a moment to sign the book, acknowledging the dedication of police officers and showing support for police and their families here and across Canada.
Hours for signing the book of condolences are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on one day only — Tuesday, Jan. 27.
The book is available in the front lobby of the Owen Sound Campus at 1450 8th St. E., in Owen Sound.

Georgian College is planning to offer the part-time Practical Nursing program in partnership with the County of Simcoe at Georgian Village. The program will be open to the public as well as staff at the seniors’ lifestyle community. The program would take about three and a half to four years to complete, with most classes taking place in the evening.
For applicants who do not meetentrance requirements, plans are also underway to offer the Pre-Health Sciences upgrading program at Georgian Village this summer, including courses in mathematics, chemistry and biology. Classes would run three evenings a week.
Availability of both programs will depend on sufficient enrolment.
Full details will be available at an information fair planned for March 11 at the Georgian Village auditorium, between 3 and 7 p.m. Please plan to attend.

Tony Dutra, CEO of pioneering Canadian goat cheese processor Woolwich Dairy Inc., will be the featured speaker at a community seminar for food entrepreneurs hosted by the Orangeville Campus of Georgian College on Feb. 25.
The event, “Preserving Our Heritage, Creating Our Future”, takes place at Monora Park Pavilion in Mono, ON. Dutra will give the keynote address and also participate in a panel of experts later in the day.
Dutra, his wife Olga and his mother Adozinda founded the company in Grand Valley in 1983.

The seminar will help local food entrepreneurs and aspiring artisan food producers understand how to cultivate a successful food business. It’s aimed at food and beverage entrepreneurs who want to know more about the agricultural and economic development trends. The seminar will offer tools and resources so agri-food businesses can position themselves advantageously to meet new consumer demand.
The day will feature a showcase of local food and beverage entrepreneurs who have launched a successful product or concept, presentations from a panel of experts, special guest speakers, and a lunch catered by a local chef.
Food entrepreneurs should attend this event to:

A campus may re-open if, for instance:
If the college is considering re-opening a campus later in the day, this possibility will be noted when the closure is first announced.
It will then be the responsibility of students and staff to monitor the Georgian website, Blackboard and/or local news media to check whether classes and other operations resume.
If campuses are re-opened, students and staff are expected to attend.
Timing of closures and openings:
