Rotary International is an international service organization that operates to bring
business and professional people together in order to provide humanitarian services to those peoples, and nations, in need around the world. The Rotary groups are non-political and non-sectarian, and each group is 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. Rotarian groups usually gather 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 Sunrise was formed in 2001, and meets on Thursday’s at 7 am at the Nord-Bridge Senior's Centre. The Club works to bring local business professionals together to get involved, and help, the local Lethbridge community. Their objective is to: “encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:
FIRST: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
SECOND: High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
THIRD: The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life;
FOURTH: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.”
As part of the Sunrise club’s commitments to the local and global community, they aim to: “channel our commitment to service at home and abroad through five Avenues of Service, which are the foundation of club activity.” These Avenues of Service include: Club Service, Vocational Service, Community Service, International Service, and Youth Service.
One of the global projects that the Lethbridge-Sunrise club became a part of was the Los Amigos Project in 2017. The group heard of the need for a variety of emergency vehicles in Mazatlan, Mexico. In collaboration with the Rotary Clubs in Grande Prairie, the Sunrise Club was able to drive down, and donate, three school buses and emergency supplies to Mazatlan, Mexico. A detailed account of the Los Amigos Project can be found in file 2019.1015/001.

History / Biographical
The Waterton Natural History Association was formed in 1983 in Waterton Lakes National Park (WLNP) as the first co-operating association in Western Canada. As a non-profit association with Parks Canada registered in the Province of Alberta, under the direction of a Board of Directors, its role was to provide and publish materials relevant to Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, provide funds for and execute projects undertaken to enhance WLNP and to sponsor special events and services for the enjoyment and education of the park visitor. The WNHA operated out of the Heritage Centre in the old Fire Hall on Waterton Avenue which was altered to house a museum of natural and cultural history exhibits about the area. The organization sold books, and topographic maps, sponsored natural history related events, workshops and art exhibits and well as providing one-on-one information to the visiting public. Summer employment programs were supported through the hiring of students, seniors, handicapped etc. Membership in the organization was open to all interested parties for a nominal fee. Over time, the WNHA operated the Crooked Creek Campground outside the park and sold plaques for a Cemetery Wall as well as raising funds for its various activities. In February, 2018, the association was formally dissolved at the final annual general meeting.
The documents in this fonds include meeting minutes, corporate documents, and photographs related to the natural history of the park as used in exhibits and programs. The collection is incomplete in that over the years many photographs and records found other homes including Parks Canada’s Waterton archives.
