MUSEUM OBTAINED ITEMS FROM LETHBRIDGE EATON'S STORE IN 1999. DUE TO COMPANY BANKRUPTCY, EATON'S STORES ACROSS CANADA WERE CLOSED, INCLUDING THE LETHBRIDGE LOCATION IN PARK PLACE MALL. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING THOSE ASSOCIATED WITH THE T. EATON COMPANY STORES IN LETHBRIDGE. THE FOLLOWING BRIEF HISTORY OF LETHBRIDGE'S EATON'S STORE WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM GALT ARCHIVES AND LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES FROM THE FALL OF 1988. THE T. EATON COMPANY WAS FOUNDED IN TORONTO IN 1869 BY TIMOTHY EATON. THE FIRST LETHBRIDGE EATON'S 'TECO' STORE WAS OPENED IN 1927 IN THE BASEMENT OF THE DOMINION BLOCK ON THE CORNER OF 4 AVENUE AND SIXTH STREET SOUTH. AFTER A FIRE, THE BUILDING WAS RENOVATED AND COMPLETELY TAKEN OVER BY THE EATON'S STORE, WHICH OPERATED IN THAT LOCATION UNDER PERIODIC RENOVATIONS FROM 1929 UNTIL THE OPENING OF THE PARK PLACE MALL IN 1988, IN WHICH EATON'S WAS AN ANCHOR RETAILER. IN 1989 A PORTION OF THE UNIVERSITY OF LETHBRIDGE ART COLLECTION WAS TEMPORARILY PUT ON DISPLAY IN THE VACANT EATON'S BUILDING, AND PROPOSALS WERE MADE TO MAKE THE INSTALLATION PERMANENT, BUT EVENTUALLY THE PROPERTY WAS SOLD AND DEMOLISHED TO MAKE WAY FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF A BANK OF MONTREAL BRANCH. IN 1999 THE EATON'S STORE IN PARK PLACE MALL CLOSED JUST PRIOR TO THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE BANKRUPTCY OF THE LARGER T. EATON COMPANY LIMITED.

A GIFT FROM ICA PERU. DURING THE EARLY 90'S, LETHBRIDGE HAD A PROFESSIONAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM WITH ICA PERU. THIS EXCHANGE WAS MEANT TO UPDATE THE BUREAUCRATIC METHODS USED IN ICA PERU TO MORE CONTEMPORARY POLITICAL AND CIVIC PHILOSOPHY. THIS BANNER WAS A GIFT FROM PERU TO SYMBOLIZE THIS RELATIONSHIP. UNFORTUNATELY, THE EXCHANGE PROGRAM WAS NOT PARTICULARLY SUCCESSFUL SINCE EVERY TIME A NEW MAYOR WAS ELECTED (THEY COULD BY LAW ONLY SERVE ONE TERM), THE ENTIRE BUREAUCRACY WAS CHANGED. THIS MEANT THAT ANYTHING THAT THE PREVIOUS BUREAUCRATS LEARNED THROUGH THIS EXCHANGE WAS LOST. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING SOME ASSOCIATED WITH THE EXCHANGE BETWEEN ICA, PERU AND THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROFESSIONAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM BETWEEN ICA, PERU AND LETHBRIDGE WAS FOUND IN LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES FROM JANUARY 30 AND OCTOBER 16, 1991. IN JANUARY 1991 THE MAYOR AND CITY DIRECTOR OF ICA, PERU VISITED LETHBRIDGE FOR 10 DAYS TO OBSERVE THE OPERATION OF VARIOUS CITY DEPARTMENTS THROUGH THE MUNICIPAL PROFESSIONAL EXCHANGE PROJEXT. THE PURPOSE OF THE PROGRAM WAS TO MATCH MANAGERIAL AND TECHNICAL EXPERTS IN CANADIAN MUNICIPALITIES WITH THEIR COUNTERPARTS IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES. AT THE TIME OF THE EXCHANGE, ICA WAS A COMMUNITY OF 200,000 PEOPLE, WITH AGRICULTURE AND WINE PRODUCTION BEING ITS TWO LARGEST INDUSTRIES. A SECOND PERUVIAN DELEGATION VISITED LETHBRIDGE IN OCTOBER 1991, AND A THIRD WAS MEANT TO ARRIVE IN EARLY 1992, BUT NO ARTICLES WERE FOUND TO SUGGEST THAT THE PROGRAM CONTINUED FURTHER.

BANNERS IDENTIFIED SPORTS BEING PLAYED AT DIFFERENT VENUES. DONOR IS UNCERTAIN, BUT BELIEVES BADMINTON MAY HAVE BEEN PLAYED AT THE UNIVERSITY ON ACCOUNT OF REGULATION CEILING HEIGHT. AFTER THE GAMES ENDED, ALL MATERIALS WERE CENTRALIZED AT A DEPOT TO BE DISTRIBUTED (EG. WRESTLING MATS, FENCING EQUIPMENT) TO LOCAL FACILITIES. LEFT OVER MATERIALS, SUCH AS THIS BANNER, WERE AVAILABLE FOR SOUVENIRS. DONOR PICKED UP THIS BANNER ON ACCOUNT OF HAVING INSTRUCTED BADMINTON AT THE UNIVERSITY. THE MASCOT ON THE BANNER IS FARLEY PHEASANT WHICH, ACCORDING TO DONOR WAS LOCALLY DESIGNED. THE WINTER GAMES CAME TO LETHBRIDGE AND SOUTHERN ALBERTA FEBRUARY 6-24,1975. THE "GAMES" WERE AWARDED BASED UPON A TEAM EFFORT FROM THE COMMUNITIES IN SOUTHERN ALBERTA. IN ORDER TO HOST 3,000 ATHLETES IN 16 SPORTS THE CITY BUILT TWO NEW FACILITIES AND UPGRADED OTHERS. THESE INCLUDE THE SPORTSPLEX (SPEED SKATING OVAL) AND STAN SIWIK POOL. VOLUNTEERS CAME FROM EVERY COMMUNITY SOUTH OF CLARESHOLM, EAST OF BLAIRMORE, WEST OF BOW ISLAND AND NORTH OF THE US-CANADIAN BORDER. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THE DONOR'S ROLE IN THE GAMES, SEE P20010087002-GA.

THIS ARTIFACT WAS PART OF A DONATION FROM KNUD PETERSEN OF OBJECTS THAT RELATED TO HIS EXPERIENCE AS A VOLUNTEER OF THE 2012 ALBERTA SUMMER GAMES THAT WERE HOSTED IN LETHBRIDGE. IN NOVEMBER 2012, COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED PETERSEN ABOUT HIS EXPERIENCE AT THE 2012 GAMES AND HIS HISTORY WITH ATHLETICS IN SOUTHERN ALBERTA. PETERSEN SAID: “I’VE BEEN VOLUNTEERING A LOT WITH THE SOUTHERN ALBERTA SUMMER GAMES OVER THE YEARS… I WAS ACTUALLY THE SPORT CHAIRMAN FOR THE SOUTHERN ALBERTA SUMMER GAMES IN COALDALE IN 1997 [SO] IT WAS NOT NEW TO ME TO BE PART OF SOMETHING LIKE THAT… I RETIRED WHEN I WAS 50 IN 1994, AND I BECAME INVOLVED WITH THE SPORTS PRETTY EXTENSIVELY AT THAT TIME, AND WITH THE UNIVERSITY AND THE COLLEGE PROGRAMS, AND ACTUALLY COACHED AT THE COLLEGE IN THE WOMEN’S SOCCER PROGRAM THERE. AND, YEAH, SPORTS HAS ALWAYS BEEN CLOSE TO MY HEART BUT I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN MANY OTHER VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES AS WELL [INCLUDING BEING] THE CHAIRMAN OF THE SOUTHERN ALBERTA COUNCIL OF PUBLIC AFFAIRS… I’VE ALWAYS SAID THAT IT’S GOOD TO RETIRE EARLY, AS LONG AS YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING ELSE. TO RETIRE TO DO NOTHING IS THE WORST THING ANYBODY CAN DO. TO KEEP YOUR MIND OCCUPIED AND TRY AND STAY YOUNG, YOU HAD BETTER BE INVOLVED WITH A LOT OF THINGS. THERE’S ALWAYS ROOM FOR VOLUNTEERS, AS LONG AS YOU ARE NOT LOOKING FOR PAY, THERE’S ALL KINDS OF JOBS AVAILABLE. YOU GET TO WORK WITH GREAT PEOPLE, THAT’S ONE OF THE BEST PARTS AND CERTAINLY, ESPECIALLY YOUNGER PEOPLE, IT’S GREAT TO WORK WITH THEM… [FOR THE 2012 ALBERTA SUMMER GAMES] I WAS ABLE TO GET THE KIND OF JOB THAT I WAS KIND OF INTERESTED IN DOING; IT WAS AVAILABLE. SO, YEAH, I JUST, I ENDED UP BEING A SUPERVISOR AT ONE OF THE SCHOOLS, IN THE AFTERNOON SHIFT, AND ABLE TO VOLUNTEER FOR THE TRACK AND FIELD EVENT IN THE MORNING SHIFT… THE MORNING SHIFT WAS AT THE TRACK AND FIELD AND I DID THAT FROM 8 TILL 3, AND THEN FROM 3 TILL MIDNIGHT, I WAS AT THE SCHOOL… IT WAS WONDERFUL TO BE PART OF IT… THE YOUNG GENERATION HAS GOT AN AMAZING AMOUNT OF ENERGY AND ENTHUSIASM AND, GENERALLY SPEAKING, PRETTY RESPECTFUL, I HAVE TO SAY. AND SPORTS IS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT BRINGS RESPECT TO YOUNG PEOPLE; THEY RESPECT EACH OTHER, AND RESPECT THE OFFICIALS, GENERALLY SPEAKING… WE HAD GREAT WEATHER… THAT IS ALWAYS IMPORTANT, AND FROM WHAT I HEARD, BEING SUPERVISOR AT THE SCHOOL, THE MEALS WERE SECOND TO NONE. THEY WERE GREAT MEALS AND THOSE TWO INGREDIENTS GOES A LONG WAYS TO A SUCCESSFUL GAMES, AND GENERALLY SPEAKING, I THINK PEOPLE WERE EXTREMELY HAPPY WITH THE FACILITIES, AND THAT, AND THE VOLUNTEERISM WAS, YOU KNOW, IN THE END , THEY HAD ENOUGH VOLUNTEERS… IF ANYBODY EVER IS THINKING ABOUT VOLUNTEERING FOR THESE KIND OF EVENTS, YOU KNOW, IT’S A GREAT EXPERIENCE. IT’S SOMETHING I WOULD RECOMMEND ANYBODY TO DO AT LEAST ONCE IN THEIR LIFE.” THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ABOUT THIS SPECIFIC ARTIFACT WAS EXTRACTED FROM THE NOVEMBER 2012 INTERVIEW WITH THE DONOR. PETERSEN SAID: “[THE BANNER] WAS GIVEN TO ME… IN THE LAST FEW DAYS, I WENT [INTO THE OFFICE] AND SAID IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING YOU ARE JUST GOING TO GET RID OF ANYWAY, I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A MOMENTO THAT MAYBE I CAN PASS ON TO, FOR AN OCCASION LIKE THIS… THEY HAD, YOU KNOW SEVERAL OF THOSE AND I THINK , AND YEAH, SOME OF THE STUFF THEY HAD JUST GOT RECYCLED OR GOT THROWN OUT… IT WAS ACTUALLY THE ONE THAT WAS HUNG AT THE SUMMER GAMES OFFICE… THEY HAD IT HANGING, WHEN YOU WALKED IN, THERE WAS A BANNER HANGING ON THE WALL IN THERE.” SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR A FULL TRANSCRIPT OF THE INTERVIEW, AND FURTHER INFORMATION ABOUT THE 2012 ALBERTA SUMMER GAMES.

THIS BANNER WAS USED LOCALLY TO ADVERTISE THE LETHBRIDGE STAGE OF THE 2014 TOUR OF ALBERTA, HELD ON SEPTEMBER 3, 2014. ACCORDING TO THE TOUR OF ALBERTA WEBSITE, THE ANNUAL ROAD CYCLING STAGE RACE STARTED IN 2013, AND IS CANADA’S FIRST AND HIGHEST RANKED PROFESSIONAL CYCLING RACE. THE EVENT IS SANCTIONED BY UNION CYCLISTE INTERNATIONALE, AND INVITES 15 INTERNATIONAL TEAMS OF EIGHT RACERS EACH TO COMPETE. THE 2014 TOUR OF ALBERTA INCLUDED STAGES IN CALGARY, INNISFAIL, RED DEER, WETASKIWIN, EDMONTON, AND STRATHCONA COUNTY, IN ADDITION TO THE LETHBRIDGE STAGE. LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES FROM AUGUST 2014 OUTLINED THE CIRCUIT FOR THE 142 KILOMETRE RACE, WHICH RAN ALONG SECTIONS OF STAFFORD DRIVE NORTH, SCENIC DRIVE, INTO THE RIVER VALLEY, AND THROUGH THE DOWNTOWN CORE. A COMMUNITY FESTIVAL WAS ALSO PLANNED TO BE HELD IN GALT GARDENS ON RACE DAY, WITH VENDORS, SCREENS DISPLAYING LIVE TELEVISION COVERAGE OF THE RACE, AND LIVE ENTERTAINMENT. HEAVY RAINFALL ON RACE DAY HAMPERED THE FESTIVAL BUT THE RACE WENT FORWARD AS PLANNED, WITH TEAMS FROM THE NETHERLANDS, AUSTRIA, ITALY, USA AND CANADA COMPETING. THE LETHBRIDGE STAGE OF THE RACE WAS BROADCAST IN 162 COUNTRIES, TO 41 MILLION INTERNATIONAL VIEWERS. ON OCTOBER 8, 2015 COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED CAROL THIBERT, FORMER CITY OF LETHBRIDGE COMMUNITY SERVICES PROGRAM CO-ORDINATOR, ABOUT HER INVOLVEMENT IN THE PLANNING AND EXECUTION OF LETHBRIDGE HOSTING THE TOUR OF ALBERTA. THIBERT SAID: “THE ORGANIZERS - THE ALBERTA PELOTON ASSOCIATION - CAME TO THE CITY AND WANTED TO KNOW IF LETHBRIDGE WOULD BE [A] HOST CITY… THEY [ASKED] IN THE SPRING OF 2014, WHICH IS VERY LATE TO TRY TO ORGANIZE A THING OF THAT MAGNITUDE, BUT THE CITY JUMPED IN AND IT FELL UNDER MY PORTFOLIO TO ENSURE THAT THE TOUR WAS ORGANIZED. SO, IN VERY SHORT ORDER, A LOT OF PEOPLE GOT INVOLVED REALLY ENTHUSIASTICALLY, BECAUSE THERE IS A VERY STRONG CYCLING COMMUNITY IN LETHBRIDGE AND THEY PUT TOGETHER THE TOUR… [THE PLANNING COMMITTEE] WERE ACTIVELY INVOLVED IN EVERYTHING FROM [ORGANIZING] VOLUNTEERS TO PUTTING ON A FESTIVAL. BECAUSE ALONG WITH THE TOUR OF ALBERTA, THE CYCLING RACE, THERE IS ALSO A FESTIVAL COMPONENT THAT THE CITY IS RESPONSIBLE FOR… I’VE BEEN TO ALL THREE TOURS OF ALBERTA, 2013, 2014 AND 2015, [AND] I’D SAY THAT LETHBRIDGE PLANNED THE BEST FESTIVAL IN ANY OF THE EVENTS THAT WE’VE BEEN TO IN THESE THREE YEARS. UNFORTUNATELY, ON SEPTEMBER 3RD WE HAD SUCH A RAINFALL, IT RAINED LIKE IT NEVER RAINS IN LETHBRIDGE EVER, AND IT RAINED ALL DAY… THE RAIN REALLY WASHED OUT THE FESTIVAL, WHICH IS VERY, VERY UNFORTUNATE, [BUT] THE CYCLING PART WAS GREAT, IT WAS VERY CHALLENGING… THE CITY GOT BEHIND IT FULL-HEARTEDLY. OUR CITY MANAGER TOLD US HE DIDN’T WANT ANYTHING TO LOOK UNDONE, ANYTHING TO BE A BLIGHT ON THE COMMUNITY, AND EXCEPT FOR THE RAIN, I THINK WE PULLED IT OFF… THERE’S DEFINITELY CHALLENGES. YOU HAVE ROAD CLOSURES, MAJOR ROAD CLOSURES, AND PEOPLE ARE DIVERTED… WE HAD TO BE ABLE TO GET EMERGENCY VEHICLES [THROUGH], WE HAD TO PLAN FOR PEOPLE TO BE ABLE TO GET OUT OF WORK… ALL OF THOSE THINGS HAD TO BE FLUSHED OUT, IT WAS A TREMENDOUS LOT OF WORK… BECAUSE OF MY INVOLVEMENT WITH THE ORGANIZING COMMITTEES IN OTHER COMMUNITIES, [I] KNOW THEM, AND THEY GIVE THE TOUR OF ALBERTA [STAGE] IN LETHBRIDGE ONE OF THE BEST [REVIEWS]. THEY WOULD REALLY LOVE TO COME BACK HERE JUST BECAUSE IT WAS SO WELL ORGANIZED.” SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR FULL INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPT AND HARDCOPIES OF RELATED NEWSPAPER ARTICLES.

ON MARCH 29, 2018, COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED LORI HARASEM AND JENNIE SUDO REGARDING THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE DONATION OF CANADA 150 MEMORABILIA. HARASEM AND SUDO WERE INVOLVED WITH ORGANIZING THE JULY 1, 2017 EVENTS FOR CANADA 150, WITH SUDO ACTING AS CHAIR FOR THE LETHBRIDGE CANADA DAY COMMITTEE WITH THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE AND HARASEM AS A MEMBER OF THE COMMITTEE. ON THE BANNER, HARASEM ELABORATED, “THIS WAS A BANNER THAT WE HAD TO PROMOTE, OBVIOUSLY CANADA DAY, BUT WE ALSO HAD IT AT OTHER EVENTS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR TO PROMOTE CANADA DAY. AT THE TOP, IT MENTIONS THE FREE SWIM AND SKATING AS WELL. THE BIGGEST THING FOR US WAS AT THE BOTTOM, THE URL WHERE WE HAD ALL THE INFORMATION, YEAR-ROUND ABOUT WHAT WAS GOING ON WHICH WAS THE LETHBRIDGE.CA/CANADA150. THIS WAS OUR BANNER THAT WENT TO MANY PLACES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR; ANY TRADE SHOWS WE WENT TO, SO THAT PEOPLE WOULD BE AWARE WHERE TO FIND OUT INFORMATION ABOUT CANADA DAY AND OTHER ACTIVITIES THAT WERE GOING ON.” “IT WAS…A POP-UP BANNER THING THAT…YOU JUST PULL UP AND DOWN AS WE NEEDED AND TRANSPORTED AS ONE, ROLLED-UP PIECE AT EVENTS.” “WE MADE THE [ONLY] ONE BUT WE DO HAVE TWO [OTHER BANNERS]. ONE’S THE FREE SWIM AND ONE’S THE FREE SKATE. THESE WERE THE ONES THAT WOULD BE PUT OUT AT THE POOL OR AT THE ARENA THAT WAS HOSTING THAT DAY TO SAY, 'TODAY, FREE SWIM. CANADA 150 CELEBRATION.' THOSE TWO BANNERS WERE EXCLUSIVE JUST TO SWIMMING AND SKATING. THIS ONE WENT TO ALL ACROSS THE COMMUNITY, ALL YEAR-LONG.” “ERIC SHARP…DESIGNED ALL OF THE BANNERS, ALL THREE.” “THEY WERE ALL DONE LOCALLY, AND WE USE THEM A LOT BECAUSE THEY LET US TRANSITION OUT THE BASE, SO WE CAN RE-USE BASES AND WE NEED TO SAVE MONEY…SIGN SUPERSTORE…CREATED ALL THREE.” HARASEM AND SUDO RECALLED THEIR TIME PLANNING AND ORGANIZING THE 2017 EVENTS, WITH SUDO NOTING ABOUT THE PLANNING COMMITTEE, “THE LETHBRIDGE CANADA-DAY COMMITTEE IS A COMMITTEE THAT’S MADE UP OF CITY OF LETHBRIDGE EMPLOYEES IN PART WITH COMMUNITY VOLUNTEERS. MY POSITION AS THE COORDINATOR OF RECREATION AND CULTURE, I AM AUTOMATICALLY VOLUNTEERED FOR THIS COMMITTEE ALONG WITH OUR RECREATION AND CULTURE TEAM. THE CHAIRING RESPONSIBILITIES FOR THAT COMMITTEE GET ROTATED BETWEEN OUR TEAM MEMBERS EVERY TWO YEARS AND MY YEAR JUST SO HAPPENED TO FALL ON THIS VERY IMPORTANT, NOSTALGIC YEAR FOR CANADA’S 150.” “[THE COMMITTEE IS] ALWAYS IN EXISTENCE. I THINK [THERE] WAS A LOT OF PRESSURE, BUT REALLY GREAT PRESSURE. I WAS VERY PROUD TO BE ABLE TO BE PART OF THE COMMITTEE. AND BEING ABLE TO LEAD THE TEAM FOR MY VERY FIRST TURN AT CHAIRING THE COMMITTEE. I FELT A LOT OF PRIDE TO BE ABLE TO SHOW THAT OUR COMMUNITY CAN COME TOGETHER AND CELEBRATE CANADA’S 150.” “[THE] COMMITTEE [WAS] COMPRISED OF THE RECREATION AND CULTURE TEAM, WHICH WAS TWO MANAGERS, LORI HARASEM AND JASON FREUND, MYSELF AS THE CHAIR FOR [2017]. WE ALSO [HAD] MARLENE LAPOINTE, SARAH BURTON, SCOTT CARPENTER AND ONE OF OUR TEMPORARY EMPLOYEES, ERIC SHARP, [AS] PART OF THE COMMITTEE AS FAR AS THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE SIDE GOES. WE ALSO HAD THREE PUBLIC VOLUNTEERS FROM THE COMMUNITY. WE HAD ADELLE HARRINGTON, BOBBY MCCALLUM AND DAVID FRITZ WHO ALSO PLAYED A HUGE ROLE IN HELPING COORDINATE SOME OF THE ACTIVITIES THERE.” “AS SOON AS CANADA DAY 2016 ENDED, WE WERE ALREADY THINKING ABOUT WHAT WE WERE GOING TO BRING BACK, WHAT KIND OF BUDGET WE WERE GOING TO NEED, WHAT KIND OF ACTIVITIES WE WERE GOING TO HAVE, HOW WE WERE GOING TO MAKE IT SPECIAL, AND MAKE IT STAND OUT THE NEXT YEAR…FOR THE REST OF THE CANADA DAY [EVENTS], THE ONES THAT AREN’T CANADA 150 OR STAND-OUT, WE WOULD PROBABLY ONLY START [PLANNING] ABOUT SIX MONTHS IN ADVANCE. BUT, THE PLANNING PROCESS FOR CANADA DAY, PERIOD, IS QUITE LONG AND STRENUOUS. WE HAVE TO THINK ABOUT SOME PRETTY TIGHT TIMELINES WHEN WE’RE TALKING ABOUT PLANNING AN EVENT THAT BIG. WE DEFINITELY NEEDED THE FULL YEAR TO PLAN CANADA 150.” “CURRENTLY, THE ONLY SPECIAL EVENT THAT THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE REALLY HOSTS, AS A CORPORATION, IS THE CANADA DAY EVENT. WE RELY ON OUR COMMUNITY GROUPS TO DO MOST OF OUR OTHER SPECIAL EVENTS." ON THE EVENTS PLANNED, HARASEM RECALLED, “IN ALL HONESTY, FOR THE CANADA DAY ACTIVITIES ITSELF, THOUGH I’M ON THE COMMITTEE, I’M NOT AS INVOLVED WITH THAT AS OTHER THINGS THAT I OVERSAW THAT LASTED FROM JANUARY 1ST TO DECEMBER 31ST. SEEING JENNIE AND THE TEAM AND HOW MUCH THEY WORKED…THEY EVEN CHANGED THE LAYOUT AT HENDERSON LAKE THAT HAD BEEN THE SAME WAY FOREVER AND WE HAD TO GO TO SENIOR LEADERS OF THE CITY AND ASK FOR EXTRA MONEY BECAUSE THE BUDGET FOR CANADA DAY HASN’T CHANGED FOR TWELVE OR FIFTEEN YEARS. TO PUT ON SOMETHING THAT WE KNEW THE PUBLIC EXPECTED A LOT [FROM]…[WAS] MY BIGGEST ROLE WITH THE CANADA DAY. IT WAS A HUGE AMOUNT OF WORK AND IT WAS SO SUCCESSFUL, ESPECIALLY ON THE SOCIAL MEDIA SIDE. AT THE CITY, WE’RE USED TO SEEING A LOT OF NEGATIVE COMMENTS. OUR COMMUNICATIONS TEAM HAS SAID THAT THE MOST POSITIVE COMMENTS THEY’VE EVER HAD ON ANYTHING THAT THEY’VE EVER POSTED ON THEIR FACEBOOK WAS AFTER THE CANADA DAY. I THINK THAT THEIR TEAM, JENNIE’S TEAM, DID AMAZING AT MEETING THE EXPECTATIONS OF THE PUBLIC WHICH WERE VERY HIGH.” “I CAME IN [WITH THE COMMUNITY GROUPS ORGANIZING]. WE HAD A GRANT, ‘CANADA 150’. WE HAD EXTRA FUNDING INJECTED INTO OUR BUDGET FOR 2017 [AT] OUR REQUEST, SO THAT WE COULD HELP LOCAL GROUPS THAT WERE ALREADY DOING EVENTS TO THEME IT AROUND CANADA 150. NORMALLY, THE CITY’S RULES IS YOU CAN ONLY GET ONE GRANT FOR ANY EVENT, EVEN THOUGH THERE’S MULTIPLE GRANTS AVAILABLE. BUT, FOR CANADA 150, WE ALLOWED GROUPS TO GET THEIR NORMAL GRANT, AND WE ALLOWED THEM TO ASK FOR UP TO $750 EXTRA, AND THAT WOULD ALLOW THEM TO THEN THEME THEIR EVENT. WE DIDN’T CARE HOW THEY DID THAT. IF THEY WANTED TO USE $750 TO BUY RED AND WHITE CUPCAKES AND BALLOONS [THEY COULD]. WE HAD [AT THE] JAPANESE GARDEN A HUNDRED AND FIFTY JAPANESE DANCERS PERFORMING AND THEY BOUGHT SPECIAL RED MATCHING JACKETS WITH THE MONEY THEY GOT. IT WAS OUR WAY OF ENCOURAGING THE COMMUNITY TO CELEBRATE CANADA 150 ALL YEAR-ROUND. BECAUSE ALL WE DO IS CANADA DAY, WE HAD TO FIND A WAY TO HELP THE COMMUNITY CELEBRATE CANADA 150 AND TO PUT IT IN THE PUBLIC’S EYES ALL YEAR-ROUND IN ANY WAY WE COULD. WE HAD A LOT OF GROUPS AND A LOT OF EVENTS. THERE WAS THIRTY-EIGHT EVENTS THAT RECEIVED FUNDING OVER THE COURSE OF THE YEAR, SO THERE WAS SOMETHING EVERY MONTH OF THE YEAR.” “DURING 'PRETTY, WITTY AND GAY', WHICH IS AN EVENT THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY PUTS ON IN FEBRUARY/MARCH, THEY USED THEIR FUNDING TO [HAVE] A BIG BULLETIN BOARD WHERE PEOPLE [COULD] WRITE DOWN THEIR THOUGHTS ABOUT WHAT IT WAS LIKE TO BE GAY IN CANADA. AND TO SHARE THEIR FEELINGS ON [BEING GAY IN CANADA] TO CONNECT BECAUSE, OBVIOUSLY, WE’RE A MORE OPEN-MINDED COUNTRY AROUND THAT THAN MOST OF THE WORLD. THAT, TO ME, WAS A REALLY UNIQUE WAY TO CELEBRATE CANADA’S 150TH.” “WE ALSO HAD A SMALL THEATRE GROUP COME TOGETHER, A COLLECTIVE THAT HAD NEVER EXISTED BEFORE. THEY PUT ON A VERY CONTROVERSIAL PLAY ABOUT FORMER PRIME MINISTER STEPHEN HARPER WHICH I WENT TO SEE AND IT WAS PRETTY SMALL. IT WASN’T THIS HUGE PLAY WHICH IS DONE IN CASA IN THE BLACK BOX [THE COMMUNITY ATB ROOM] BUT IT WAS FUNNY. IT WAS VERY CONTROVERSIAL AND WE DID PUT SOME MONEY BEHIND THAT.” “[THERE WAS] UPPER VICTORIA PARK NEIGHBOURS. I HAD SO MANY NEIGHBOUR DAYS. BUT WITH NEIGHBOUR DAY BEING A VERY POPULAR EVENT IN JUNE, AND WE’VE GOT MORE NEIGHBOURHOOD ASSOCIATIONS FORMING, WE REALLY ENCOURAGED THE NEIGHBOURHOODS TO APPLY FOR THE GRANT. MOST OF THE NEIGHBOURHOOD ASSOCIATIONS, AT THIS POINT, THEIR NEIGHBOUR DAY EVENTS ARE PRETTY SMALL, UNDER A HUNDRED PEOPLE. BUT IT’S THE PERFECT PLACE TO CELEBRATE CANADA DAY AND CELEBRATE YOUR NEIGHBOURS. OF COURSE, UPPER VICTORIA PARK IS THE ‘GO BIG OR GO HOME’ NEIGHBOURHOOD ASSOCIATION FOR NEIGHBOUR DAY. IT’S EXCITING WHENEVER WE’RE ABLE TO SUPPORT THE THEME OF THE EVENT IN ANY WAY BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT PEOPLE FROM EVEN OUTSIDE LETHBRIDGE ATTEND THAT EVENT. WE’RE NOT JUST SUPPORTING THE MEMBERS OF UPPER VICTORIA PARK NEIGHBOURHOOD ASSOCIATION WHEN WE SUPPORT SOMETHING, SO IT WAS NEAT TO BE ABLE TO PUT SOME MONEY THERE.” “OF COURSE, WINTER LIGHTS FESTIVAL AT JAPANESE GARDEN IS A VERY NEW EVENT. THIS WAS ONLY ITS SECOND YEAR, EVER. THOUGH IT IS A TRADITIONAL, JAPANESE, CULTURAL WINTER EVENT, WE WERE ABLE TO GIVE THEM SOME FUNDING, TOO, BECAUSE THEY ACTUALLY [HAD] THE FIRST EVENT IN 2017 BECAUSE THEY START IN EARLY DECEMBER AND GO TILL FEBRUARY. THEY WERE THE LAST EVENT, ‘CAUSE THEY WERE ON NEW YEAR’S EVE IN 2017. THAT FESTIVAL, THE FIRST TWO YEARS OF IT, KICKED OFF THE BEGINNING OF CANADA 150 AND ENDED CANADA 150 FOR US. IT WAS NEAT TO HAVE SUCH AN IMPORTANT CULTURAL GROUP AND ATTRACTION IN LETHBRIDGE…BE THE FOCUS OF THAT. THERE WERE EVENTS OF ALL SIZES. WE EVEN HAD THE DOGS THAT [ON] THE LAST DAY OF OPERATIONS [AT WESTMINSTER POOL] IS JUST FOR DOGS. EVEN THE HUMANE SOCIETY GOT MONEY TO [HAVE] DOG CANDIES THAT WERE RED AND WHITE…DOG TREATS DECORATED WITH RED AND WHITE BALLOONS AND RIBBONS. I WENT TO IT AND IT WAS HILARIOUS. THE DOGS [TOOK] OVER THE POOL AND THEY’RE SO HAPPY, IN CELEBRATION OF CANADA’S 150TH.” “WE ALSO HAD FREE SWIMMING AND SKATING THROUGHOUT THE YEAR THAT THE CITY SPONSORED AS A CELEBRATION. THAT WAS BECAUSE WE OBVIOUSLY WANT PEOPLE TO BE ACTIVE AND WE WANT PEOPLE TO USE OUR FACILITIES, AND WE KNOW THAT COSTS CAN BE A BARRIER. EVERY MONTH WE HAD AT LEAST ONE FREE SWIMMING WHERE THE FIRST HUNDRED AND FIFTY PEOPLE WERE FREE. IN THE SUMMER THAT INCLUDED BOTH OF THE OUTDOOR POOLS, HENDERSON AND WESTMINSTER. HENDERSON WAS REALLY POPULAR ‘CAUSE IT’S ONLY SECOND YEAR OF OPERATIONS…IT’S STILL [A] VERY POPULAR PLACE TO GO. THEN, WE HAD FREE SKATING AT ALL OUR ARENAS, INCLUDING THE NEW ATB CENTRE AND WE HAD THOSE AT LEAST [ONCE] A WEEK THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE YEAR. THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE IN LETHBRIDGE GOT TO PARTICIPATE IN SWIMMING OR SKATING FOR FREE AS [PART OF THE] CELEBRATION. AT SOME OF THOSE, WE HANDED OUT LITTLE CANADA FLAGS OR CANADA TATTOOS OR HAD BALLOONS.” ON THE DONATION OF CANADA 150 MATERIALS TO THE MUSEUM, HARASEM NOTED, “I BELIEVE THAT THIS IS IMPORTANT TO GO TO THE GALT BECAUSE I KNOW THAT WHEN WE FIRST REALIZED WE NEEDED TO DO SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE THE 150TH, THE FIRST THING WE DID WAS LOOK BACK TO SEE WHAT HAPPENED AT THE 100TH AND WHAT WE HAD IN THE MUSEUM AND ELSEWHERE IN LETHBRIDGE FOR CELEBRATIONS THAT OCCURRED AT THAT TIME. [WE WERE LOOKING TO] SEE IF THERE WERE THINGS THAT WE COULD MIMIC OR SHOULD KNOW ABOUT. WE USED A LOT OF PHOTOS THROUGH OUR REC AND CULTURE GUIDE FOR THAT YEAR TO REMIND PEOPLE THAT, FIFTY YEARS AGO WAS THE BIG CENTENNIAL. WE THOUGHT THAT WHEN THE 200TH COMES, THAT PEOPLE WOULD PROBABLY BE WANTING TO LOOK BACK TO 2017 TO SEE WHAT HAD HAPPENED.” SUDO ADDED, “I THINK CANADA’S SESQUICENTENNIAL [150TH ANNIVERSARY] WAS VERY IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER BECAUSE FIFTY YEARS IS A LONG TIME AND A LOT HAPPENS IN FIFTY YEARS. IT’S GREAT TO BE ABLE TO LOOK BACK AT ALL OF THE THINGS THAT WE DID FOR CANADA’S SESQUICENTENNIAL AND REMEMBER ALL OF THE HARD WORK, AND THE COMMUNITY COMING TOGETHER AND SHOWING THEIR CANADIAN PRIDE.” FOR MORE INFORMATION INCLUDING THE FULL INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPTION, PLEASE SEE THE PERMANENT FILE P20180006007-GA.

History
PLATE WAS USED FOR ADVERTISING AND PUBLIC RELATIONS FOR THE MARQUIS RESTAURANT IN LETHBRIDGE. RESTAURANT WAS LOCATED IN THE MARQUIS HOTEL, WHICH OPERATED IN LETHBRIDGE FROM 1928 UNTIL ITS CLOSURE OCTOBER 14, 1985. THE HOTEL WAS LOCATED AT THE CORNER OF 7TH STREET AND 4TH AVENUE SOUTH, WHERE THE ROYAL BANK NOW STANDS. DINING ROOM AND BANQUET HALL OF THE MARQUIS HOTEL ON THE MEZZANINE FLOOR WAS CONSIDERED A SHOWPLACE IN LETHBRIDGE, FAVORED BY BUSINESS AND SOCIAL COMMUNITY, AND NOTED FOR ITS FLORAL ARBOURS. FOOD SERVICES WERE TAKEN OVER BY ERICKSENS WHEN THE FAMILY MOVED TO LETHBRIDGE IN 1949, INCLUDING THE BANQUET HALL AND LATER THE COFFEE ROOM. HOWEVER, THE DINING ROOM REMAINED PART OF THE HOTEL UNTIL THE BUSINESS CLOSED IN 1985 DUE TO THE UNECONOMIC COST OF RESTORING IT TO THE STANDARDS OF THE BUILDING CODE.
