Fort Macleod plans 100-foot Centenni FIVE STAR CANADIAN RYH WHISKY a ONTAMO, Seagram's FIVE STAR Canada's largest-selling rye whisky. Blended and bottled by Joseph E. Seagram Sons, Ltd., Waterloo, Out. By JEAN SWIHART Special Correspondent FORT MACLEOD Fort Macleod is in a unique situa- tion. It is the first fort established in the west and it is about to celebrate its 100th anniversary. Along with the rest of Can- ada, it is observing the centen- nial of the formation of the Royal Canadian Mounted Pol- ice. How can the oldest fort justly honor that famous force, and the pioneers, and the early missionaries? Since Canada's centennial in 1967, citizens here have been making plans to have a big birthday party to build mem- orials to the past. Oct. 13, 1973, to October, 1974, is the official year to commem- orate both historic occasions. NEW BUILDING The old town hall on Main St. has been demolished to nake way for a spanking new RCMP Centennial Building that l house a much-needed li- brary, a town hall and a sen- or citizens drop-in centre. Con- struction is expected to start in he near future. On the westbound lane of -lighways 2 and 3. across from he hospital, work is already inder way on the RCMP Cen- ennial Park. Several years ago he whole block was seeded to grass and surrounded with mall trees. Hundreds of new rees were planted this spring, have been hauled to the site and rock gardens are be- ginning to take shape. The plan calls for walks and tentatively a fountain. There will be a 100-foot flow- er bed with the "RCMP 1874- 1974" facing the main thorough- fare. Four light standards were in- stalled recently and the whole garden will be lighted. There are picnic tables for the con- venience of tourists. Other centennial projects that will be lasting memorials to a colorful past arc the Lion- ettes' tiny tot playground. The site of the old library, formerly Dr. G. A. Kennedy's office, is being transformed into a wonderland for the little folk. Keeping with the history of the town, the slides have been built in the form of a fort. A new fence is under construc- tion. Perched on it will be ani- mals of all sorts. The sand box will house play equipment. Farther west, the location of the NWMP Barracks from 1883 to 1923 is now known as Mid- night Complex. Midnight Stadi- um was built in 1967 to mark the anniversary of the nation. Last year ball diamonds were built and an overnight camp- ground begun. The work was ordered stop- ped as the site was declared a j national historic site by the i federal government. It will mark the location of all original buildings, improve the roads and erect a suitable cairn. The overnight campground, the effort of the Fort Macleod Rotary Club and the Fort Mac- leod and District Chamber of Commerce, will now be relo- j cated south of the old parade square. It is hoped there Will be a picnic area end a playground nsar the campground. Another to the first ccnU'ry in the life of this ccm- numity is the fish and panic park loceicd on the O'dman river bottom across from the golf course. Or.c kitchen is nearinp completion. L c n p i n g is being done liut the inuurnl river brush is maintained to give the "cut in the country" atmos- phere. The club will turn the park over to the when it. is completed. There camp sites, picnic areas, sports areas with the ball diamond and for :es.

Clubs from Fort Macleod, Claresholm, Stavely, Parkland and Nanton will be taking part. Achievement day was discuss- ed at the meeting of the local 4-H club and a committee was appointed to look after decora- j tions. i The annual banquet of the i Nanton Beef Club is slated for j Friday, June 8, and plans were j made for Oio event. Trophies and awards will be presented at ,hat time. The May 4-H meeting was at the Lloyd Lorec home, 'resident Hugh Loree was in .he chair and Marilyn Houlton read the minutes. Fae Hodgins led the mem- bers in repeating the 4-H pledge and Brian Ransom gave the treasurer's report. The group decided to enter a float in the Lost Lemon Mine Day parade Aug. 6. Several speeches were given by members. Ann IToulton spoke on training elephants; Brent Armstrong chose the top- ic of the Rocky Mountain Big- horn Sheep and Don Lowe talk- ed about the Ringneck Phea- sant. The annual judging day for the local club and the visiting Stavely Parkland Club was held at. the Jim Lowe farm. town but close enough for ev- eryone to enjoy. These are provided with the centennial as (he main thought. Maybe the grca'.cst contrast and greatest monument to the past, present, and future is the Fort Museum. SUinc-d on a small scale and n shoestring in 1957. the enterprise has grown beyond all cxpectr.i'ions. It is unique in that it houses only artifacts of the district. i The main emphasis is on the police. A building, the Police Museum, houses reminders of the force throughout its 100 i years. j The Kanouse House has only ihe pioneer effects from before 1911. The only ether area is arti- facts froni the Blood and Pei- gan Indians, who live here. i Last year more than 71.000 tourists patronized the muse- um. The contrast of past and pres- j ent is most clearly visible to the I tourist travelling west. On the couplet, which is Highways, 2 and 3, between 2nd and 3rd I avenues, are the old court house and the new. Surrounded by open space, the original ing that served the first cen- tury of Albertar.s, stands in majesty, its character reflect- ing the strength of the pioneers. Beside it, the new building with its simplicity, stands wait- ing to carry the torch passed on to it by the old. The present generation stands eager and ready to live for today and build for an even better tomor- row. e Herald Correspondent in Your Area MONARCH MRS. JACOB DEKKER MOUNTAIN ViEW MRS.
