Ladies of the Pioneers Pemmican Club
History / Biographical
The Ladies of the Pioneers Pemmican Club are a group of women that meet together to socialize and participate in community outreach programs. The Club was established in 1953. To be a member of the Club, women must be from families that lived in Southern Alberta prior to December 31, 1910. The Club meets together on the first Wednesday of the month to socialize. The Ladies of the Pioneers Pemmican Club is a branch off the men’s Pemmican Club. On 12 December 1894 the Old Timers Association was created (the name has changed multiple times over the years). The purpose of the men’s club was to arrange a New Years’ Eve Club and the planning/work of the association was to be done by people who had arrived in southern Alberta prior to 1886. Throughout the years the Pemmican Club has had the purpose: “to encourage fellowship, entertainment and social enjoyment for the members; to collect and preserve the early history of Lethbridge and southern Alberta; and provide assistance to members and their families through difficult times in their lives”. In the same way, the Ladies of the Pioneers Pemmican Club follow a similar guideline for membership, traditions and charity work. The Ladies have worked many volunteer hours at the Chinook Regional Hospital making dolls for sick children and other programs, and have participated in charities throughout Lethbridge. They also donate generously to various organizations in Southern Alberta, such as animal shelters and Meals on Wheels.

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
The Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park Association (WGIPPA) is an organization within Rotary International comprised mainly of Rotarians from Districts 5360, 5370 and 5390, although any Rotarian in good standing can be a member of the WGIPPA. The WGIPPA continues to promote the peace park concept, and peace among nations generally, through annual assemblies and ceremonies like 'Hands Across the Border'. "The establishing of the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park is essentially a Rotary project. At the first annual good-will meeting fostered by the Cardston Rotary Club held at the Prince of Wales Hotel, Waterton Lakes Park, on Saturday, July 4th, 1931, between the Rotarians of Alberta and Montana, the following resolution was presented for consideration and carried, unanimously. Moved by Rev Canon S.H. Middleton, Cardston, and seconded by Harry B. Mitchell of Great Falls. 'Whereas one hundred members of the Rotary Clubs, representing the cities of Cardston, Lethbridge and Calgary of Alberta; Great Falls, Kalispell and Missoula of Montana, and Estevan, Saskatchewan, are assembled together attending meeting at the Waterton Lakes National Park; An Whereas, it has been decided that a similar annual meeting be held alternately at Glacier Park, Montana and Waterton National Park, Alberta; Therefore, be it Resolved, that the proper authorities be petitioned to commence negotiations to establish the two parks indictaed as a permanent International Peace Park, which shall be definitely set aside for this laudable purpose. Pledging our loyalty and allegiance to foster all international relationships.' Negotiations were immediately commenced with the local representatives of the Governments concerned, Brig. General J.S. Stewart, C.M.G., D.S.O., M.P. for Alberta, and the Hon. Scott Leavitt for Montana. Bills were duly presented during the 1932 session before the Federal Government, Washington, and the Dominion Government, Ottawa, both Houses working separately and conjointly in their respective spheres, which resulted in the official proclamation that the two parks be henceforth designated as 'the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park'..."

History / Biographical
Mark Campbell was born and raised in Lethbridge, and he attended the radio arts program at Lethbridge College. Actively engaged in the local fine arts community throughout his life, Campbell worked as a radio broadcaster in the 1970s-1980s. He transitioned to television broadcasting in 1993, working for Global Lethbridge. It was while working at the local radio station 1090 CHEC in the early 1980s that Campbell started the Greetergrammers. The Greetergrammers were a group of friends that could be hired to sing and entertain for scheduled groups around town, and perform to unsuspecting individuals. The group could be hired to perform for birthdays, anniversaries, proposals, going-away parties, or any other special occasion that the client would request. The client would contact Mark Campbell and arrange to have their loved one or friend serenaded by the Greetergrammers at a specific time and place. The group would show up at the arranged location, and surprise the individual, and serenade them with a personalized song based off of a famous tune. As the Greetergram performances started to catch on, Mark Campbell kept schedule books of all of their performances, starting from 1984-2010; however, the Fonds are missing the 2004-2009 schedule books. Information contained in the schedule books include the names of the clients arranging the performances, the unsuspecting individual to be serenated, a few personal characteristics of the individual, and where the performance would take place. The Greetergram performances lasted for approximately 36 years, performing to over 20,000 people.

History / Biographical
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
Hamilton opened in 1950 and was the first junior high school in Lethbridge located on 5th Avenue and 15th Street South. Mr. G. C. Miller was named principle and Mr. George Watson Sr., was named vice principle of the school. In August of 1951 the school was named Hamilton junior high by the board of trustees. This was in honor of Mr .W. A. Hamilton who had been principle of the high school from 1904-1910, he then held the Superintendent position until 1915, and served in the board of trustees in 1921-1924. In 1957 the school was overcrowded and plans were drawn for an expansion of the school. This decision had some backlash and changes to the plans had to be made. In 1959 the Board agreed on the final plans for the addition to the school. The school eventually closed in 2003 and the students were moved to the new junior high school in West Lethbridge (G.S. Lakie). Today the building houses the headquarters of Lethbridge School District 51 and Allan Watson School.

History / Biographical
Donald W. Buchanan was born in 1908 in Lethbridge, Alberta. He was the son of Senator William Ashbury Buchanan, the publisher of the Lethbridge Herald. He studied Modern History at the University of Toronto and Oxford University. In 1934, he received a fellowship from the Carnegie Corporation to train in museum administration. Following his research fellowship, Buchanan founded the National Film Society of Canada, as well as he worked for the Canadian Radio Commission (now the CBC). Buchanan was always involved in the arts and he was a firm believer in making the arts accessible to the public. In 1963, Donald Buchanan, and his brother Hugh, offered many fine works of art to the City of Lethbridge. This became the first significant public art collection ever to exist in Lethbridge. He believed that art was meant to be shared and enjoyed by all. After leaving the Canadian Radio Commission, Buchanan worked for the National Film Board, where he established the stills division; from 1947 until 1960 he was employed by the National Gallery of Canada, serving as director of the Industrial Design Division (1947-1953). His work with the National Industrial Design Committee and the curated the revolutionary exhibition “Design for Use in Canadian Products” (1946) which changed the standards of Canadian art. Donald W. Buchanan served as the Associate Director of the National Gallery of Canada, and took a leave of absence to explore his own artistic endeavors of photography while travelling throughout Europe. Buchanan returned to the Gallery in 1963 as a member of its Board of Trustees, and he became the Director of the International Fine Arts Exhibition at Expo ’67 in Montreal. In the last few years of his life, his friends recall him being busier than ever, organizing the exhibition. He never was able to see the fruits of his labor, however, because of his sudden death in 1966 after being struck by a car in Ottawa. His legacy centered on the accessibility of art to the public and his impact on the art community in Lethbridge.

History / Biographical
The Lethbridge PROBUS Club was established in 1997, with its formative meeting taking place in September and its first official meeting taking place October 23, 1997 at Ericksen’s Restaurant. The Rotary Clubs of Lethbridge helped to establish the club and sent the initial invitations to retired or semi-retired individuals in Lethbridge. A PROBUS (an abbreviation of PROfessional and BUSiness) club is meant for retired and semi-retired individuals who have had “some measure of responsibility in any field of endeavor”. Meetings are meant to be held monthly and regular outings are planned, with the goal of bringing retired people together to socialize. The Club has invited multiple speakers from around the area for educational opportunities. Speakers have included Belinda Crowson, from the Galt Museum & Archives in 2014 who spoke on local Lethbridge history, and retired Lethbridge City Police Chief, John Middleton-Hope, who spoke on his work as an international consultant in 2013. Members also enjoy local tours, such as the
