Member of the Board
Lawrence Bergquist is a member of the Rosebud Fellowship Board and serves on its Finance Committee.
After one year of post secondary education, Lawrence launched himself into a career of farming. This afforded a life-long financial and agronomic education (i.e. sink or swim!).
Lawrence and his wife Marlene were first introduced to Rosebud in the early nineties when two of their sons attended and/or worked at Rosebud School of the Arts. That, together with his involvement with community theatre in central Alberta led him, upon retirement in 2009, to study theatre at RSA, obtaining a Certificate in Theatre Foundations.
His studies at Rosebud introduced him to choral singing and he has enjoyed singing with Mannskor, a male chorus at the University of Alberta Augustana Campus, ever since. Other performance opportunities included the Rosebud Studio Stage and the Canadian Badlands Passion Play.
Lawrence’s involvement with community and church organizations invites and grows his experience as treasurer and other roles on the financial end of things.
Lawrence continues to keep busy gardening, tinkering in the farm shop, managing his investment portfolio, and enjoying producing solar power for himself and the grid.
