Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 6, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 UTHBRIDGE HERAID Tueiday, 6, 1971 Family Y camp needs volunteers By .TUDI WALKER Herald Stair Writer The family V has a new fam- ily camp. It also has a prob- lem: it needs volunteers for the camp. The family camp, to be sit- uated on a private ranch south- west of Cardston, has been or- ganized to allow each member of a family to pursue his own interests. Plans have b een made to provide programs in hiking, cralls, horseback rid- ing, swimming, fishing, and cliinbing. Organizers of the program had hoped to help finance the camp with an Opportunities for Youth grant or a grant from an oil company. The Opportunities for Youth grant was rejected and so far, the oil company grant hasn't come through. But Marcie Blais, currently the only person working on the camp, has decided to go ahead with the camp whether it re- ceives funds or not. This means she needs volunteer help. The original proposal liac provided for four full lime staffers (an out-trip specialist a craft instructor, a naturalist and a person to organize fam ily programs) each to be pait1 for the summer. Now, Miss Blais needs volun leers to fill these spots. Th only payment she can guaran tec is esthetic "it's an ab solutely beautiful spot." Ther will also he a place to stay an food to eat. She indicated that it migh be an ideal situation for a stu dent who is interested in rec recreation leadership or one who's interested in the ou doors. She'd even welcome vo unteers who can only help ou on weekends or for a few day If the grant does come througl full-time helpers will he paii The fee charged for using th family camp will only relie1 the financial strain a bit, an won't cover salaries at all. Estimates on the cost o[ the mp for a family of four run om to a day. The ice includes: 52 a day regis- ation fee, per person for ograms, per person for ree meals or per persou r one meal. Special events (like wiener oasts) will also be provided on cost-shared basis, and a no- inal fee will be charged for orseback riding. Families an use all or none of the ser- ices.

Old Fort Whoop-Up area to become historic site? the City council Monday approv- ed a recommendation thai the provincial government be ap-. proaehed to designate the orig- inal Fort Whoop-Up as a his- torical site and that the area be fenced off to keep out vandals. The action is subject to an agreement with the owner of flic land on which the fort sits. The recommendation, from the community services advis- ory committee, includes the stipulation that a Lelhbridge historical organization be given first authority to take any arti- facts found at the site. The University of Calgary and the. Glenbow Foundation have expressed interest in ex- cavating the site to obtain arti- facts for inclusion in Calgary't Glenbow Foundation museum. The Lethbridge Historical So- ciety will be approached to erect a fence around I he fort area. City Manager Tom Nutting said the city is interested in the site for possible future use as a preservation area In con- junction with river valley de- velopment.

St. Mary canal shutdown last another two weeks The main canal on the St. fary River Irrigation District vill be shut down for another wo weeks, Jake Thiessen, gen- eral manager, said' Tuesday. A control works on the canal wven miles south of Chin was 'ashed out a week ago and is ow being repaired. In spite of the canal being out of operation, water useres n the Taber and regions far- ther east will still be supplied, he said. This is possible hrough drawing down tha water in the Chin reservoir. 'Before the canal is flowing again, the Clun reservoir will ie ringed with mud Mr. Thiessen said. "Fishermen won't like it, but there's noth- ,ng we can do about it. "With the river flow at its very highest, this is not the time to be using up our stor- ages. However, we are fortun- ate that no farmers will be short of water at this critical period in their operations." What caused the collapse and demolition of the structure Is not known. It carries cu- bic feet per second and drops the water some 12 feet. The whole base must be torn out and rebuilt, as well as the con- trol works on the base.

City will pay for water line City council Monday reversed a previous decision and voted to have the city pay for instal- lation of a water line and lire hydrant at the Henderson Lake Golf Course. Last week, council approved the terms of an agreement be- tween the city and the Hender- son Lake Golf Club which in- cluded provision of a loan to the club for the water line, an electric distribution system and paving around the clubhouse. The golf club will still be re- sponsible for repayment of the cost for the latter two improvements. The change was requested by Alderman Chick Chichester, who saitl council had been "un- fair in its decision" last week. "The water line and fire hyd- rant are the city's responsibil- ity." he said. City Manager Tom Nutting iaid the city put in the original water system on the course, a two-inch line, then came back several years later and told the club the water pressure was deficient. Aid. Tom Ferguson said the clubhouse is owned by the city and the city should respon- sibls for the fire hydrant and water for fire protection. 3 ttcndard in ilock.
