RIDING LESSONS WESTERN AND ENGISH RIDING LESSONS Qualified Instructor Also will train horses Phone 327-9192 Rural And Urban Community Effort County Recreation Unit Officially Opened By BILL PROVICK Herald Staff Writer The Lethbridge County Regional Recreation Unit was officially inaugurated Friday night with a special' banquet with Robert Clark, Alberta minister of youth and education, as featured speaker. The LCRRU was1 designed and established to provide recreation programs and facilities for the. county of Lethbridge in a combined rural arid municipal community effort. The county has been divided into a north and south section with the Oldman River serving as the dividing line. Chairman for the northern section is Ken Kotkas of Barons. Chairman for the southern section is Charlie Bryant of Coaldale. The northern section includes Barons, Nobleford, Picture Butte and surrounding rural areas and the southern section includes Coaldale and surrounding rural areas with the city of Lethbridge excluded as it has its own department of recreation. Members of the board for the north section are Henry Nummi, Gordon Luchia, Harry Watson, Roy Lyon, Harold Ur-vold, Chester Oseen, Ed Folden and Barry Reiter. Members of the board for the south are Miro Tomasta, Sunny Miller, Norm Ober, Fran c i s Wright, Ben Pavan, Harold Osmond, George Begany, Evan Goertzen, Frank Wiens and Charlie Lyon. The LCRRU will serve a population of 13,735. Under a five - year provincial program the LCRRU could be eligible for up to $140,000 in grants from the provincial department of youth. During the banquet Mr. Bryant outlined some of the history behind the formation of the LCRRU. Recreation areas had been thought of before but in 1968 the provincial government said it was ready to assist in the formation of a regional recreation unit. A steering committee was formed and by spring of 1969 met with County of Warner officials. The county already had a Lougheed Speaks To Graduands "You will be the society and leaders of tomorrow, and whatever path you choose to follow, pursue further education whether in the academic or professional field, but don't be satisfied to stop at this level." This was the advice Peter Lougheed gave 179 graduands of Winston Churchill High School at their graduating exercises held in Yates Memorial Centre Friday night. Mr. Lougheed is the. Progressive Conservative leader in the Alberta legislature, and represents Calgary West. "Your motto, Knowledge Is Its Own Reward, is very appealing," he said, "and this goal you have reached is but one step in life. There will be many difficult tasks asked of you." Adaptability is the greatest asset young people have, Mr. Lougheed said. They adjust to environmental changes and are scornful of the hypocrisy they see around them. . "However," he warned, "young people must remember to use their education and skills in a positive way. They have the ability and know-how to create a positive response from law-makers and the whole democratic process of the country, provided they go about it the right way. x "Use the expertise that created Apollo to overcome poverty today and the social ills that mankind faces tomorrow."

Coaldale town council was the first to ratify a recreation agreement in the County of Lethbridge. All local councils involved later ratified the agreement and it was accepted by county council. Nominations to the boards were held and an "excellent calibre of people obtained" to serve on the boards, said Mr. Bryant. Hired as the recreation director for the southern section was Buck Geldert, long - time rec- reation worker in the Coaldale area. Wendy Rasmussen of Lethbridge was recently hired as recreation director for the northern section.

Unit Bold Step Forward Says Minister of Youth The County of Lethbridge has taken a bold step forward in establishing a regional recreation unit for the county, Robert Clark, Alberta minister of youth aind education said in Lethbridge Friday night. Approximately 150 persons interested and involved in recreation in the county heard Mr. Clark at the inaugural banquet of the Lethbridge County Regional Recreation Unit. "In Alberta and across Canada the move in rural areas is towards regional recreation development," he said. Through a co-ordinated county unit for recreation, Mr. Clark said, an area will not lose its identity but.rather with a well-run recreation board will enhance its identity. "Co-operation and co-ordination are the important factors." Mr. Clark also mentioned the need for more joint use of school facilities for recreation and pointed out that progress is being made throughout Alberta in this area. "The purpose of recreation," he said, "its to go as fair as possible to see that recreation is available te as many people Hospital Stay The average stay per person who was admitted for surgery in the first quarter of 1970 in the Lethbridge Municipal Hospital was 7.7 days. as possible - both young and old." viftfch the dawn of the space age in the late 1950s science and education became society's priorities while in the 1960s education appears to have been the priority. Today society is re-assessing its priorities, he said. Physical fitness is also important and is capturing more of society's interest, he said. More emphasis is being placed on "lifetime' sports" - sports that can be played during middle age as well as while a person is young. Mr. Clark, formerly a noted fastball pitcher, gave as an example the fact that many middle-aged men can play and enjoy softbaill while baseball becomes too strenuous for them as they lose their youth. He commended the county for the excellent professional help it had obtained, but suggested volunteers will continue to be important to a successful recreation program.
