SWIMMING ALWAYS POPULAR PASTIME Brewery Garden Colorful Visitors approaching Leth- bridge from the north are greet- ed with the sight of the Sicks' Brewery Gardens, just after they pass under the high level bridge. Many -of them stop to admire llie view and make their way to the tourist information hut at the east end of the parking lot. Tourists coming in from the south along Mayor Magrath Drive notice another informa- tion centre just as they pass Henderson Park. Both are run by the Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta, under man- ager Frank Smith. Helping 'him are his assistant, Mrs. Kitty Dunlop and three young ladies who are hired for the summer. The huts opened in June, 1967, replacing an older centre at the city's water tower. Another part of the operation is a mobile trailer (called the "info- complete with a tour- ist map on its side, that can bo moved to any location where it may be needed. The travel association was formally incorporated March 21, 1969. Its activities, however, go back long before that date, hav- ing been carried out by the Tourist and Conven- tion Bureau and the Southern Alberta Tourist Council. Their amalgamation under the TCASA name was a move to better co-ordinate all tourist promotion activities in the en- tire zone one tourist district, which takes in most of South- ern Alberta. An obvious and important function of the centres is the dispensing of travel maps, fold- ers, brochures and just plain, ordinary advice on points of in- terest in the area and how to get there. Every visitor is encouraged to browse through the brochures that cover the walls of the huts and help himself to those that may help him plan his vaca- tion. Information is available not only on Southern Alberta, but the other tourist zones in the province as well. And travellers heading across Canada can find information to help them plan their entire trip. Manager Frank Smith says, "As trite as it may sound, hos- pitality is our business." "We hand out information on recreation of course, but we also deal with businesses. We're interested in anyone who is tra- velling." Between two and three hun- dred persons pass through the two Lethbridge huU on a busy day in the summer. The hut at. Fort Macleod, which works in conjunction with the Lethbrklge centres, may have as many as 600 a day during the peak travel time. These three huts cover the area in tourist zone one; others in the province are located in Medicine Hat, Calgary, Edmon- ton and Lloydminster. The huts open about June 1 and stay open until after Labor Day. The exception to this rule is the centre on the brewery tion's office and now stays open all year.
