Meet the Team
Hello, my name is Richard Wild, and I have three trade licences: motor mechanic, automotive mechanic, motorcycle mechanic, and machinist, as well as a diploma in adult education from B.C.I.T. I am also a founding member of Calgary Harley Davidson, Harley Owners Group Canada, and Southern Alberta, as well as a member of the Alberta Apprenticeship Board and a teacher at Fairview College. This year, I will become a Senior Citizen of Canada.
Valerie Pratch has been a volunteer on boards for the past 30 years in the St. Paul community, including with organizations such as Saddle Lake Boys and Girls Club, North Eastern Music Association, Champions for Change, the Northeast Alberta Food Marketers Association, and the St. Paul & District Arts Foundation since its establishment in 2014.She uses her education background and passion for the arts to advocate for artists at all stages of their creative careers. She can be found growing trees for reforestation and feeding her small herd of bison tasty treats when she is not at the art foundation.
Liz is the most recent addition to the SPDAF board, but her experience with the organizations spans many years. Liz's kids have been active students in our year round programs and summer camps for over 6 years. Through that time, Liz has been one of the top volunteers for every on of our events. In her spare time, Liz runs a small local business selling her own handcrafted goods.
