The Child Development Centre celebrates 40th anniversary

first_imgThe CDC was founded in 1973, and Dr. Richard Moody, who sits as the Medical Director for the organization, describes its history the best when he says “it was started by a group of parents who saw a need in the community and were not prepared to accept that it didn’t exist” in the north, and goes on to say, “in true northern spirit” they decided that if it didn’t exist yet, than it needs to be created now.The development centre will be celebrating their 40th anniversary on September 13th with a formal dinner and dance gala, during which donors, volunteers, partners, families and the history will be honoured.The event is being held at the Pomeroy Hotel and Conference Centre Ballroom, with tickets still available for $75.00 a piece.- Advertisement -For tickets and to learn more about the centre, contact Penney Gagnon at [email protected] or call 250 785 3200.last_img read more

Inter Milan boss Mazzarri admits Vidic regret

first_img1 Inter Milan boss Walter Mazzarri admitted he should have rested former Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic as the Old Trafford legend’s woeful start to life in Italy continued.The Serbian moved to San Siro in the summer after eight years with United, but his move has not panned out as hoped so far.The centre-back was sent-off on his Inter debut, made an awful error that directly led to a goal in his second game and gave away a penalty in his third match, Sunday’s 4-1 home defeat to Cagliari.The penalty was saved by Samir Handanovic but it was little consolation on an awful afternoon for Vidic and Inter.And Mazzarri admits the 32-year-old should have been rested.“He is probably one of those I used too much,” said the former Napoli boss.“He’s strong and a leader, so I didn’t want to rest him, but he was fatigued and therefore below par. I take responsibility for that, as I should’ve made more changes and realised there are players who at this moment cannot play three or four times in a row.” Nemanja Vidic in action for Inter Milan last_img read more
