History / Biographical
The Lethbridge Musical Theatre grew out of a series of concerts started in 1962 by the Lethbridge Symphony Association. 'Review 62' (later 'Southern Showcase') was a variety show that featured popular music by the symphony orchestra and chorus, as well as performances by other groups and soloists from southern Alberta. The success of the performances sparked discussion about the possibility of staging Broadway musicals, and Lethbridge Musical Theatre (LMT) was formed as an adjunct to the Lethbridge Symphony Association. The association continued until 1968, when LMT became an independent organization. Founders of LMT included Albert Rodnunsky, Dick Mells, Gordon Moir, Douglas Card and Ross Whitmore. In the early years of the organization, three people stand out for their creative talents and leadership of LMT: Muriel Jolliffe (choreographer), Dick Mells (producer and director) and Albert Rodnunsky (musical director). Local amateur talent was occasionally supplemented by professional performers brought in for specific shows. In the early years, most of the musicians who accompanied the performances were members of the Lethbridge Symphony Orchestra. After 1968 however, when LMT became an independent group, more and more of the musicians were recruited from local school band instructors and the students who played in those bands. The Lethbridge Musical Theatre has been a theatre company for the last 50 years. The company has put on yearly shows and other smaller productions since the inception, and they perform mainly at the Yates Memorial Centre.

History / Biographical
Rotary International was founded as an international service organization that brought business and professional people together in order to provide humanitarian services to those peoples, and nations, in need around the world. The Rotary groups were created as non-political network of professionals, and each group was open to all people regardless of race, religion, color, creed, gender or political preference. Rotary International was formed in 1905, in order to better serve the community on a local to global level. The first Rotary group was formed by Paul Harris, an attorney in Chicago. Rotarian groups usually gathered weekly for breakfast, lunch, or dinner to fulfill the group’s principle of developing friendships and connections in their local area. The Rotary Club of Lethbridge was chartered in June 1918. Jeff Lydiatt of Calgary, Governor of the 19th district, led the opening ceremony. The first membership of the Rotary Club of Lethbridge included eighteen men. The first members of the Club were: Harry Alexander, Arthur Baalim, Bert Bertrand, Gerald Bletcher, Hugh Crawford, John Dow, Victor Greene, Arthur Higinbotham, Otho Lathrop, George Leech, Harold Long, George Mackay, Colin Mackintosh, George Morris, Asa Parks, Guy Roy, Fred Spooner and John B. Wilkie. The first President of the Rotary Club of Lethbridge was John B. Wilkie, Vice President was Arthur Baalim, Secretary was Harold Long, and Treasurer was Gerald Bletcher. The first meetings of the Rotary Club were held at the YMCA and were weekly luncheons. They participated and hosted several events to provide humanitarian services to people in Lethbridge. Later, the Rotary Club of Lethbridge became known as The Rotary Club of Downtown Lethbridge, with Lethbridge East and Lethbridge Sunrise, as sister clubs, as membership in the City increased through time. The Rotary Club of Lethbridge worked on projects within the local community and also the larger international community. In 2021, the Rotary Club of Downtown Lethbridge had over 120 members, and they met on Monday’s at the Lethbridge Lodge.
