History
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.

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.
