In late March, the Galt Museum & Archives began to gather ideas for future exhibits and programs from the community. Several people have responded with suggestions such as:
The historic women acknowledged in Legacy Ridge
Mayor Charles Magrath
Southminster Church which will celebrate its Centennial in 2014
1918 Regional Agricultural Fair held to provide relief from the stresses of the 1st World War
In depth history of where aboriginal peoples lived and travelled in this area
The oldest Ambulance service in North America - Lethbridge EMS
Telling the stories of smaller communities around Lethbridge
Living in the river bottom
These are great ideas but I know there are many more out there. We want to gather ideas of:
stories you feel are of significance to southwestern Alberta
upcoming special anniversaries for organizations, businesses, events, buildings
social, economic, political, humanitarian, environmental concerns or events that are important to you.
We continue to collect your suggestions so please talk to friends and family. Ask them about their ideas. Be creative, thoughtful and challenging.
Then get in touch either through this blog or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
