Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Claresholm senior centre opening drew politicians, crowds Tuesday, June LETHBRiDGE HERALD-13 Tlu> Herald- District CLARESHOLM (HNS) About 80 attended the recent opening and ribbon cutting ceremony of the Claresholm Senior Citizens Drop-In Centre. All the neighboring towns were represented, as were the local and two senior governments. Jack Homer, MP for Crowfoot and Leighton Buckwell, MLA from Macleod provincial riding, were among speakers. Jack Homer remarked on the works of art which have been produced by senior citizens after they had retired from their normal duties of making a living. He stressed the importance of developing previously hidden talents and suggested such programs as the New Horizons provided by the senior government could help. Father O'Rierdon, chairman of the Preventive Social Services Board for Claresholm and Granum, said the new centre provided a social need in providing a facility in which people could meet to exchange ideas and have a little fun. Staff Sergeant Bill Bood of the local police force extended the best wishes of the police department and expressed the hope that younger people of the town would be inspired FOREMOST'S 1974 MAVERICK MARDI GRAS QUEEN into developing a centre for themselves. He noted that senior citizens are using a former church building and started out in a former bank office building and suggested this must have a special meaning. Councillor Mae Stewart gave greetings on behalf of the Town of Clareshom and wished the 285 members every success in their community project. The centre boasts a shuffleboard game, a pool table, a television set, kitchen, card tables, easy chairs and chesterfields. One popular activity is weekly bingo games open to the general public. The centre is the first project to be partly funded by the preventive social service board of Claresholm and Granum. The project was planned and partly under way before the P.S.S. agreement was undertaken with the department of health and social service of the province. Two years ago, when the old church building and a former Tom Boy supermarket building came up for sale, Carl Smedstead and his committee asked the Town Council to purchase one of the buildings for their use. Mr. Smedstead had heard about the P.S.S. program of the Provincial Government, and after much persuasion the Town decided to borrow from a local bank and buy the former church building. A P.S.S. advisory board was appointed and the Town entered an agreement with the province to share costs of a directdr with the town paying 20 per cent and the government paying 80 per cent of his salary and expences.

FOREMOST (Staff) The County of Forty Mile seat on the Border Counties Hospital Board has little meaning, because the county does not help finance the hospital, according to the county's hospital representative. Coun. Russell Scratch, who now holds the seat, made the statement during a recent council meeting. Because the provincial government now pays all hospital costs in the province, the county representative should be elected at large, Coun. Scratch said. The hospital board would be the representative's only responsibility and he would likely take more interest in it than a county councillor now does, Coun. Scratch said. Reeve Dan Vanden Berg disagreed, saying, "I like it the way it is now." "My own feeling, the hospital reports given here each month, they don't mean as much as they would if the county was picking up the he said. "I wonder if we need council representation on the hospital Coun. Frank Romeike. representative to the Bow Island Hospital and Nurses Residence, said: "I would say without any hesitation, Council decided to discuss it again later, prior to the organizational meeting which follows the fall municipal elections. Reeve Vanden Berg noted the county system is designed to have school, municipality and hospital affairs all under one government. But Coun. William George McFall said that in the case of Coun. William Kenneth Babe, for example, "I am wondering if the work doesn't pile up." Coun. Babe is a hospital and health unit representative. Secretary Roy Wallman told council that it didn't have to appoint a councillor. The present motion could be rescinded, he said. Coun. Scratch said: "If we allowed the hospital board members to be elected at large, then they would have an electorate to answer to the same as we do." He said he didn't attend some hospital board and regional meetings because the dates conflict with county meetings. "A person has just so much time." said Coun. Scratch. "Time seems to be shorter as the years go by. You find it squeezing you quite a bit. Consequently you don't give quite as good representation as somebody only interested as somebody only interested (in that one But Reeve Vanden Berg said: "I prefer the way we have it now." Reeve Vanden Berg said. "I was in Bow Island one time, where hospital board members were elected. One time we didn't receive any nominations. Nobody was interested."
