Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, October 28, 1971 For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Family Editor TF you're interested in ice, buy bricks. That's right. Bricks. At least that's the message from the Instant Ice Council. They're a cold, rough bunch. Ice and bricks. That's what turns them on, warms them up and softens them up. The way to do it is to find ?100 you'd like to do- nate to helping Lethbridge's newest ice facility get under way. In return, you'll get a brick all of your very own which will be engraved with your name, and placed on a special feature wall in the new arena. The idea lias been successful in other areas such as Medicine Hat and the Instant Ice Council believes it will be a success here as well. The point of the whole endeavor is, of course, to raise funds for the arena but also to let future gen- erations know who helped build it. I personally hope that future generations will remember that there were a lot of other folk present in the city who were unable to afford or any part thereof but supported it with tax dollars and with pride in its construction. I asked Jim Bole, of the Instant Ice Council Wednesday, if several persons could contribute jointly on the same brick. Apparently this is not possible unless they wish to be remembered as under one name. This is easy for businesses and organizations who jointly contribute But there are other possibil- ities which occur to me. Many people like to offer what donations they feel they can afford, but don't need or even want recognition. (I wonder what will happen to all the Anonymous So why couldn't someone on a city block or city street canvass his or her neighbors to raise and have a brick inscribed with "24th Street North" (that's mine) or "4th Avenue South" and so on? Then people could make contributions and not tax their budget. In this way it's possible for every section of the city to be represented in the building, a truer picture surely of the funding of anything. Dr. Bole explained one of the problems in hav- ing two or three people make up was that the donation is tax deductible and the receipt would have to be made out to one person. But since the com- mittee is collecting funds from the public at large and it is to be assumed receipts will be given for each and every donation anyway, there shouldn't be too much difficulty. A contribution is neater and saves bookwork, but the extra bookwork is surely worth it to allow for a good community effort. Just a little thought. A dollar of a child's allowance saved and offered to the city of Lethbridge is equal to any casually written, and deserves equal time. A waterfall is gorgeous. But each drop of water came from the same place and ends in the same splash, to create the desired effect. The Henderson Lake Ice Centre or whatever its final name is will be built by each dollar of support by the people of Lethbridge, for the people of Leth- bridge. It doesn't matter whether you're dealing in dol- lars, drops, bricks or ice, every bit helps. The job is done and that's what counts. Miss Patricia Moffat, daugh- ter of Mr. and Mrs. Eric Moffat received her R.N. from the Uni- versity of Alberta Hospital in Edmonton during graduation ex- ercises held at the Jubilee Audi- torium, Oct 20th. Miss Moffat is now employed in the operating theatre at the University Hospital. Women aid executive relocation WINNIPEG (CP) Three Winnipeg women, inspired by their experiences while being transferred from city to city as their husbands climb the ladder of success, have formed a com- pany aimed at making reloca- tion in strange cities little more than a slight inconvenience. Peaches and Cream Execu- tives Moves was organized this summer by Mary Diane Turner, Anita Wood and Eleanor Hu- band to provide "psychological and emotional support to the wives and children by provision of help in adjusting to new com- munities and situations." Now established in 15 major centres across Canada, includ- ing a bilingual service to Mont- real, the company deals directly with large companies who pay the service fee when the executives are transferred. The fee entiltles the excu- tive's family to four to six weeks service geared to his to- dividual family's need.

Worst turn-out yet' Foster child care meet here .ptUctuitiMt. By JUDY TURIC Staff Writer An extremely poor turnout, ermed "the worst by fudge A. P. Catonio, attended he foster child care hearings in the city Wednesday. Judge Catonio and two other ommittee members appointed y the provincial government o look into the effectiveness of aws and procedures affecting oster care, have been travel- jig throughout the province, istening to the views express- ed by local administrators and oster parents. The members are to report leir findings and recommenda- ions in individual briefs upon heir return to Edmonton. The overmr.ent committee is made p of His Honor Judge A. P. 'antonio, of Juvenile Family xnirt in Edmonton, Mrs. E. I'Byrne, a housewife whose _ualifications include a social services course at NAIT, and who has worked for the depart- icnt of Indian affairs, and red Winters, a foster parent. The morning discussions rought to bear statistics con- cerning the number of existing oster homes in the area, the umber of children who have seen placed, the need for a home here in Lethbridge, nd various methods used by lo- al social workers in the ap- jrehenston and placement o; lildren. Cam Bracken, regional super-1 isor of the department of so- j lal development, made sev-! ral comments on the necessity j attempting to re establish j suitable home environment! ith the natural parents for the lild who could feasibly be re-i loved from the home. I He said there is a need for a lore concentrated effort to be ut into examining and chang- ing the life style of the par- nts, so as not to apprehend the lild so quickly. Both the rights the child and the rights of le parents must be kept in mind and dealt with fairly. Several questions were raised cerned with changes to the pro- concerning the laws governing cedures and laws when they af- temporary and permanent ward- slip. General comments tended to support a strengthening of present laws rather than allow- ing them to be relaxed. The present three year per- iod of temporary wardship was felt to be adequate and at times could be extended so as to pro- vide a greater safety factor to- wards the final placement de- cision. In the Lethbridge area, there are approximately 145 foster homes. The social development offices deal with an average of 185 children a year. The 24 social workers with the local region cover an area which includes north to Nan- ton, east to Vauxhall, south to the border and west to the mu- nicipal district of Fort Macleod, During the afternoon sessions, the meeting was open to com- plaints, compliments and ques- tions from those present. Mr. and Mrs. Bud Helmer, foster parents in the city, voiced opinions concerning the children in their custody, and were con- fected the over all well being of the children involved. They were particularly concerned with developing a greater sta- bility to the permanence of child placement. They felt this stability was lacking and was of major importance. The committee has visited 15 points to the province and now have two left, High Prairie and Drumheller.
