Doreen Lloyd – Candidate for Council

Coaldale is my birthplace and has always been my home.  I have been married to Duncan Lloyd for 49 years.  We have two sons, both graduated with mechanical engineers degrees from U of A.  Both are married & we are lucky to be blessed with 5 grandchildren.

I attended K -12 in Coaldale and Business College in Lethbridge.   My first job was for a firm of accountants followed by Schwartz insurance agencies, in the accounting dept.

I was always actively involved in school councils and in 1989 I was elected for three terms, as a School trustee in County of Lethbridge, (later became Palliser Regional Schools).

In 1995 I began my career in Real Estate which I enjoyed for 21 years.  During that time I was also very involved in the Chamber of Commerce, serving several terms as President.

As chair of the Gem of the West we took on a project to capture the history of the Coaldale Hospitals.  This resulted in the production of an amazing book of memories, pictures and History about the Town of Coaldale.

After my retirement in 2016, I continued to focus on Communities in Bloom.  Our efforts paid off when we received the National Award for our “Canada 150” project.  The main area was the Maple Leaf, but we also included many other things, to combine what the committee and town did for “Canada 150”.  Coaldale is a great Community and my goal is to work hard to keep it that way.
