The setting was very difer- ent in 1973 thsr. it was in 1974. Hamilton Junior High School in Lethbridge, thanks to their audio visual teacher, Bruce Haig, retraced the famous trek. Im'olved in the course of his- tory were 13 students and four adutls. They have studied the uolice history and the lives of the men who made the trek. At the junction of Highways 2 and 3 en the eastern out- skirts of town, they were met bv Wilf Becke-. BCMP Fort Macleed detachment, Sgt. Hsnk Cougar. co-ordina4or of RCMP Centennial for southern! Alberta, councillor Phil Hod-1 nett and Paul Dersch. Also on hand was a grouo of interested citizens from Fort Macleod, six! Also in the welcoming delegation was Ron Broadhead, principal of the A. Day School and a group he had assembled. They were all mounted and gave the atmosphere of 100 years ago. The police escorted the as- semblage to the Fort Museum where Mr. HodneOt officially de- clared the trek ended. He in- vited the members to a town- sponsored dinner. Greeting the honored guests were Mayor George Buzunis and MLA Leighton Buckwell. Mr. Buzunis introduced Mr. Buckwell. grandson of an ori- ginal 1874 police officer. In addressing the group, Mr. Buckwell said we have a color- ful histcrv here and after being on the trip the members would have a better appreciation of our heritage. "I hope >ou will write all i you learned, it should make a i fascinating bcok to come out in centennial year. This is the first home of the Mounted Police, this is where it all began. We, in Fort Macleod are naturally interested in the RCMP." He said the centennial is really stretched over three years for this part of the coun- try, 1973 being the RCMP year, 1974 is Alberta's and Fort Mac- leod's centennial ard 1975 is Calgary's 100th birthday. "We owe a great deal of tri- bute to the police, the armed forces win their laurels on for- eign soil but we must remem- ber the type of men who made the force yesterday and today. They represent law and order, they lay their lives on the line every day. we owe them a debt of gratitude." Mr. Buzunis pointed to the mural on the wall, an artist's conception of the meeting of Chief Crowfoot and Col. Mac- leod, and said be was delighted that a school class was inter- ested in learning of the history of their home area. Mr. Buzunis then presented each member of the trek with an RCMP map and a Fort Macleod centennial decal on behalf of the people of Fort Macleod. He asked Mr. Haig to supply the names and rank of each member of the trek so the town could have a suitable made for the school. This Kill be presented at the scbttl in the fall by the mayor end councillors. Mr. Haig thanked the mayor and councillors for the tremen- dous welcome, for the escort, the meal and the prawotattatt. "I would like to thank the adults on the trek; they wonderful.'' Mr. Buzunis culminated an exciting adventure by Hying Fort Macleod enjoyed having such delightful guests and "If you'd stopped in Lettfcridge you'd have messed thiagi up. Col.
