Water Shutdown Paterson GlobalFoods Institute (PGI) - Saturday January 16
Water service will be interrupted to Paterson GlobalFoods Institute (PGI) this weekend, starting Saturday, January 16, 2021 at 7:00 AM, with service being restored the same day by 2:00 PM. This shutdown is necessary to allow contractors to make repairs and upgrades to the building's plumbing systems.
Please note that after the repair is complete, some minor discoloration of water at PGI is possible for the next 24 to 48 hours. This discoloration is a normal part of the shutdown process and in no way affects the quality or safety of the water system.
If you have any questions about this service interruption, please contact Nick Brown at 204-588-6025 or email@example.com .

Dave Rogalsky Retirement Celebration
Dave Rogalsky from Student Support Services is retiring today. He joined the college in May 1999 and has made an impact with all those that he worked with. There was a wonderful retirement celebration for him on Wednesday that you can see here. Best of luck on retirement Dave, you will be missed.
Thank you from Dave Rogalsky
To all staff of Red River College:
Please accept my appreciation for the retirement gifts, the kindness, and the support shown to me over the years as I am now leaving the College.
My 22 year career at the College has been personally and professionally rewarding. I am fortunate to have had meaningful work and the opportunity to work with so many great colleagues over the years. You all provided me with wonderful support, guidance, long-time friendships and many memories.
All the cards, gifts, kind words and good wishes have touched me deeply.
Kurt Proctor's Retirement "Card"
Kurt is retiring?? Yes, it's true. After 30+ years at Red River College, he's taken the leap into retirement. While everyone in Teacher Ed has mixed emotions on the subject, we wanted to give others the opportunity to express themselves as well.
In lieu of a party, gathering and celebration, we have put together a retirement "card" for Kurt Proctor so you can wish him well and send him a personalized message. This "card" will be sent to him after Jan 29th, his official last day.
Please click on the link to go to the Padlet for Kurt: https://padlet.com/cae2016mp/kh81c5skwmeb7ku7
Questions? Please email Monique Pishak, Admin for Teacher Ed: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
