Here’s what’s popular on Lethbridgeliving.com this week: 

  • A heritage tree is much more than just branches and leaves, it is a cultural landmark with a rich history telling the stories of past generations, and sometimes even embodying a personality of its own. These trees, a special as they are, deserve to be recognized for what they mean to the community, and to ensure we never forget about them, local certified arborist Maureen Sexmith-West has been busy cataloguing their locations and history. Check out her interactive map to find a Heritage Tree near you.
  • Do you know of a youth volunteer (age 5–24) who has gone above and beyond the call of duty? Nominate them for a Leaders of Tomorrow award to recognize the outstanding contributions they have made to their community. Coinciding with National Volunteer Week, the awards Gala will take place April 13 at the Lethbridge Lodge Hotel, and the deadline for nominations is March 1 at 4:30 p.m.
  • Are you interested in making your community better in every? Would you like to join or start a neighbourhood association in your community? To get you connected with the movers and shakers in our city, we’ve compiled for you a list of emerging and established neighbourhood associations, along with contact information for the Council of Lethbridge Neighbourhoods, so that you can connect with the people helping make our city better one neighbourhood at a time.
  • The question of whether or not Lethbridge needs a third bridge has been discussed at great length on and off for over a century—every time an incident occurs on one bridge or the other, the debate is reignited. What do you think? In our January/February issue we ask, “Does Lethbridge need a third bridge, and where should it be located?” Log in, tell us what you think, and we’ll post the results along with your comments in our March/April issue.
