Taber learns about agri-bank Foundation lodge requests convince Russell of need TABER (HNS) A first for Western Canada will be the agri bank concept being introduced by the Royal Bank of Canada when its new branch is opened here in Oc- tober. The announcement was made at a recent reception and dinner at the Heritage Motor Hotel. The bank's agricultural department manager, Keith R. Sveinson of Calgary; told some 60 community and business leaders of the plans. The-agri bank program will involve the use of a mini van equipped with office fur- niture which "will travel all of the rural roads from Brooks to Warner and from Lethbridge to Medicine Hat bringing banking service to the in- dividual farmers.'' Mr. Sveinson said this program was introduced in- Ontario a few years ago. Six vans are in use there and there is no reason the program cannot be duplicated in the West, he said. Commenting on the bank's building program here, he said construction had been delayed but that the contrac- tor has agreed on an October opening date. Introduced to the informal dinner meeting were Taber branch manager Pat Phillips and his wife Lorna who have already purchased a home here. The Phillips come from Calgary. Said Mr. Sveinson: "We see a great future for Taber and its district, and we want to be a part of it." Speaking of community in- volvement, he told the people that the agri-bank is equipped with a public address system .which is available for whatever use it might be re- quired in the community.

In the meeting with the municipal affairs minister who was in the city last week for a three day visit, the foundation presented briefs asking for 65 bed lodges in Lethbridge and in Coaldale, as well as an expansion to the Golden Acres Lodge, one of three now being operated in the city. "We feel strongly that it's our said Mr. LeBaron. The foundation's brief said the waiting list for senior citizens1 lodge accommoda- tion number 60 in Coaldale and 88 in Lethbridge. "Any home that's built here, well have filled im- said Mr, LeBaron. "We've never had a vacancy here, not even for one He said there is apparently some chance the provincial cabinet could speed up the decision making process and reach a decision on the re- quests .this fall so the local foundation board can begin working with architects for a spring tender call.
