History / Biographical
The Lethbridge District Planning Commission (LDPC) was established by the provincial government on 7 April 1955 by Order-in-Council 444/55. The original members of the LDPC were the City of Lethbridge, Town of Coaldale and the Municipal District of Lethbridge No. 25. The organizations first offices were located in Lethbridge city hall. The first director of the LDPC was Samuel Lurie, and the first chairman was Charles Roland Daniel Jr. When the Commission began operation, there were three paid employees. In 1956 the Village of Nobleford joined the LDPC. In 1957 another provincial Order –in-Council changed the name of the organization to the Oldman River District Planning Commission (ORDPC), to more accurately reflect the geographical area served. Also in 1957, the Village of Picture Butte Joined the ORDPC. In the years 1958 and 1959, the staff of the ORDPC expanded to include the director, two planners, a draftsman and a secretary. The towns of Nanton and Raymond joined the ORDPC, and the first Commission dinner was successfully held. By 1960 membership in the ORDPC had increased, as had the number of staff. The use of sub-committees was first introduced in these years. The executive committee met on a regular schedule, but the sub-committees – city development, region development, public relations and others – met only when required. As the ORDPC moved into the early 1960s, two more planners were added to the staff, and the organization embarked on an active public relations and information program that included a television series, weekly newspaper column and the formation of a Civic Study Group in Lethbridge. The ORDPC was involved in planning projects that stretched from Nanton to Raymond, and from Taber to the Crowsnest Pass. In 1963 The Planning Act was passed by the provincial government, and the name of the organization was changed yet again, this time to Oldman River Regional Planning Commission (ORRPC). The ORRPC suffered a setback when the Town of Fort Macleod withdrew its membership, but work continued, and by 1966 the ORRPC was more actively promoting a regional approach to planning. In 1966 Improvement District No. 2 as well as the towns of Blairmore and Vulcan joined the ORRPC. On 15 July 1968 the Subdivision and Transfer Regulation was amended. Regional planning commissions became the approving authorities for subdivisions within their defined regions. All municipal governments, whether members of the region or not, had to submit their proposals to the Regional planning commission for approval. The Planning Act was also changed, allowing the Regional planning commission to advise municipalities in the region with respect to development, whether they were members or not. Finally in 1968, the villages of Bellevue and Frank joined the ORRPC. This raised total membership in the ORRPC to 16, representing 37% of the municipalities in the planning area, and 63% of the total population. In 1969 Fort Macleod, Milk River and the County of Vulcan No. 2 joined the ORRPC. Also in 1969, the federal government designated the southern part of the planning region under its Regional Development Incentive Act. The objective of this federal legislation was to improve employment opportunities by encouraging businesses to locate or expand in slow-growth areas where such incentives were likely to succeed. In 1970 nine municipalities joined the ORRPC: Vauxhall, Magrath, Claresholm, Champion, Stirling, Warner, County of Warner No. 5, Municipal District of Willow Creek No. 26 and the Municipal District of Taber No. 14. The year 1971 saw completion of a project to map and interpret all of the land within the planning region, an important first step toward writing a preliminary regional plan. The same year, the town of Stavely joined the ORRPC. Finally, the Alberta Planning Fund was implemented. It was intended that all funds required to operate regional planning commissions would be requested directly from the provincial Planning Board, with the Board in turn requisitioning all municipalities of the province to contribute to the fund. In 1972 the village of Coutts and the Peigan Reserve became members of the ORRPC, and the Commission instituted five new sub-committees to review studies prepared for the Preliminary Regional Plan. These sub-committees were Land Use and Administration, Housing and Social Development, Recreation and Environment, Economy and Resources, and Transportation. In 1973 the Municipal District of Cardston and Village of Cowley joined the ORRPC, bringing its membership to 35. Four provincial departments were now represented on the ORRPC: Industry and Commerce, Highways and Transport, Environment, and Agriculture. In 1975 the Town of Granum joined the ORRPC, along with the Villages of Arrowwood, Glenwood, Milo and Carmangay. Membership in the ORRPC had reached 40, including the Blood and Peigan Reserves. Another milestone was reached when on 11 July 1974 the Preliminary Regional Plan was adopted by the ORRPC. On 17 December 1974 the plan was approved by the Provincial Planning Board. In 1975 the Town of Grassy and Lake and the Villages of barons and Lomond joined the ORRPC, which raised the membership to 43 of 44 municipalities within the ORRPC’s geographical area. Throughout the late 1970s the ORRPC continued its primary planning work, while cooperating with various departments and agencies and both the municipal and provincial levels to accomplish such projects as: site development studies for irrigation reservoirs, historic sites designations, river valley development and stabilization, study of the environmental effects of forestry operations, input into the new Planning Act, and others. In 1994 a fundamental change to regional planning was instituted by the provincial government. The Municipal Act was amended to abolish all regional planning commissions in Alberta. The members of the ORRPC reconstituted the organization in 1995 under the name Oldman River Intermunicipal Services Agency (ORISA) to provide the same services as were provided previous to the change in provincial legislation. In 2003 ORISA was renamed the Oldman River Regional Services Commission (ORRSC). As of 2006, the ORRSC is contracted by its 36 members in southwestern Alberta to provide advice regarding land use planning matters. The Commission is also available as a resource to individual landowners, but does not prepare plans as part of a legal process for anyone in the private sector. The ORRSC also processes and advises on subdivision applications on behalf of its member municipalities. Final decisions on approval or rejection are made by a municipal subdivision authority.

History / Biographical
Beta Sigma Phi International "In 1931, during the Great Depression, there was a need for an organization that could bring women together and expose them to a social, cultural and educational climate that was not available in those difficult times. Most important, there was a need for friendship and support from other women. Beta Sigma Phi was created out of this need. It did not take long before Beta Sigma Phis were helping others. Members worked together to raise $22 million in war bonds during World War II. The 1950s brought peace and prosperity to the world, and Beta Sigma Phi membership doubled. This era was filled with grand balls, elegant teas and the growing strength of sisterhood as thousands of women joined Beta Sigma Phi. As the times have changed, so has Beta Sigma Phi. The 1960s and 1970s found our organization less formal, but the ideals were the same. Now in the 21st Century, our over 165,000 members find the more we grow, the more valuable we become to our sisters and to our communities. The Beta Sigma Phi woman will continue to face challenges and cherish opportunities as she moves into the future. Typical chapters enjoy socials that range from informal gatherings to gala affairs that often include friends and family. Fascinating cultural programs offer insight into subjects that range from the arts to gardening to in-home businesses. Membership in our organization provides opportunities to contribute to your community, develop lifelong friendships, and polish leadership skills. Our members raise more than $3 million for local charities and donate over 200,0000 volunteer hours in an average year. Each chapter determines its own service projects and participation is always voluntary. Chapters have created their own International Funds that donate millions of dollars to health research groups, hunger projects, and other worthwhile causes. Members and their families can receive assistance through our International Loan, Scholarship and Disaster Funds ... Unlike a college sorority, our organization has members of all ages and educational backgrounds. Our sisterhood constantly redefines itself through the diversity and vitality of its members who share their ideas, talents and enthusiasm." [Source: Beta Sigma Phi International webpage, history section: http://www.betasigmaphi.org/history.php] Beta Sigma Phi in Lethbridge Beta Sigma Phi was founded in Lethbridge 19 July 1945 in a ceremony held at the Marquis Hotel. Mrs. Esther Lewis, a traveling representative of Beta Sigma Phi International with headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri, read the pledge ritual to 22 women who formed the Kappa Chapter. As reported on page eight in The Lethbridge Herald of 19 July 1945, Mrs. Lewis "will read the pledge ritual for the initiation at a table with a large bowl of yellow roses flanked on either side with tall black candles." The number of members dropped to 10 by the time of the first 'Ritual of Jewels' ceremony. The organization remained at 10 members until 1949, when members from Kappa Chapter split to form Beta Chapter. On 3 October 1950 the first meeting of Beta Sigma Phi City Council was held. Another chapter, Tau, was created later as was Nu Phi Mu Junior Chapter. In Lethbridge, the members work their way up through various levels according to a planned program of the larger organization. The members meet in each others' homes twice monthly and take turns making educational presentations on a variety of topics: music, health, history, home, famous women and literature. The local chapters of Beta Sigma Phi have provided volunteer and/or financial support to organizations including Harbour House, Meals on wheels, Canadian Cancer Society, Arthritis Society, Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Alberta Heart and Stroke Foundation. Beta Sigma Phi also provides scholarships to Lethbridge College and the Kiwanis Music Festival.
