Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Widneidoy, Seplimbir 29, 1971------------------------------------- CMHA flying day popular with Lethbridge residents Worth Iheir weight in cop- per. The Canadian Mental Health Association sponsored a scenic flight over tlie city on Sunday. The fare, two cents for every pound a person weighed, at- tracted 350 people to Kenyon Field. The total amount gath- ered for the day, after the ex- penses of aircraft gas and oil, was S700. Molly Mitchell, a full time worker with CMHA said she was pleased with the turnout, but she was sorry that so many people had to be turned away. The CMHA provides extra pat this ser- Innovative project conference here The first of four Alberta Con- ferences on Innovative Projects will be held at the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Oct. 1-2. Each conference is being planned to assist teachers, prin- cipals, superintendents and school board members to plan and develop practical innova- tive projecls. Sponsored by the Alberta Ad- visory Committee on Educa- tional Studies and Uic Alberta Innovative Projects Board, the conference will deal with the original concept of innovative projects, what has happened to date, how to develop a propo- sal for a project and prepara- tion of individual projects. I The program includes reports and concepts of innovative pro- jects, problems with and devel- opment of proposals and actual development, with consultation, of individual projects. The projects developed at the conference will b e discussed, with consideration by the board of group projects developed the previous day. Because of the group and in- dividual activity, only a limit- ed number of participants can be accommodated. School boards are asked to sponsor teachers, administrators and board members and other or- ganizations are asked to spon- sor participants. therapy for the patients in soulliern Alberta mental hospi- tals. The workers, strictly vol- unteer, take the patients bowl- ins, swimming, and leach them yoga and crafts. The patients do not have to pay for vice. Each year the CMHA re- ceives from (lie United Appeal. "Canvassing is not allowed to raise extra funds throughout tlie said Mrs. Mitchell. "The association must give people something for their money as in this case witfi a flight over the city." The flying time o f seven planes was donated. The Leth- bridge Flying Club donated two planes; Southwest Aviation do- nated two, Lethbridge Air ser- vice donated one, Norm Bullied and Pet Lewko donated their plane and time to fly, and Bob Brown of Fort Macleod do- nated his aircraft and his time for the day. Other pilots donating their time were Jack Boeder, Nor- man Fisk, Ken Woodman, Roy Price, Keith Dalgliesh, Morris Thompson, Hans LeBlanc, Lar- ry Garber, Herbert EUerman, and Jack Giffin. Nine Lethbridge Jaycees also were on hand to help weigh the passengers and collect the fares. Boy Scouts seek help through United Appeal By MARGARET LUCKIIURST Staff Writer Tlie Boy Scout movement all across Canada, encompassing about 700 boys in the Leth- bridge area has been updated. Today's programs are much more boy centred than for- merly. Instead of having a scout leader running a particular pro- gram, the idea now is to con- sult the boys themselves and concentrate more on their needs as individuals. Shared leadership, it is felt, helps develop a sense of re- sponsibility in the boys and as- sists them in arriving at deci- sions. The first scout troop in Leth- bridge was organized in 1917 under the sponsorship of the LDS Church. Following this the movement spread through southern Alber- ta to involve eventually more than scouts, cubs and the more recently organized pro- gram called "Venturers." In the updating process the old badge and award scheme has been modified so that boys can work towards these goals at their own level of compe tence without any undue ores sure. On the other hand, camping is still very much as large a part of scouting experience as it has always been. Camp Im pecsa, near Pincher Creek, is a busy place during the sum mer and the training the scouts receive there in many facets of outdoor living lasts them all then- lives. The Boy Scout program is assisted by the United Appea! funds. Without this aid the cosl of operating the program would be prohibitive even with all the volunteer help and donations from private sources. Fees lor (he scouts would have to be doubled, making it financially difficult for some boys to continue.
