Letter from the Editor

With sunny skies and a warm forecast ahead, the outdoors is calling. There’s nothing I love more than sitting on the patio of a local restaurant, soaking up the rays and sipping on an icy beverage. It’s also festival season and there are so many interesting activities to get involved with in our vibrant city. I hope you will take advantage of the many free or low-cost events to connect with others in our community.

If getting outdoors isn’t your jam, why not visit the brand spanking new Cor Van Raay YMCA on the west side, check out a New West Theatre show in the newly renovated Yates Memorial Centre, or sit in the stands and cheer on the Lethbridge Bulls at the revamped Spitz Stadium? There are too many ideas to list, but our intern Jess Bennett has tried to condense a few events into a special calendar pullout to help you decide.

I have more exciting news about Lethbridge Living! Have you watched our television show on Shaw TV? We are creating content to coincide with our print edition to bring even greater awareness of the amazing people doing amazing things in our community. Our Winter and Spring television shows are already up and running. Watch for our Summer edition soon!

Plus, you can now subscribe to Lethbridge Living and have the magazine delivered directly to your doorstep, no matter where you live. We have a low annual rate of $10 for local delivery and $25 for out-of-towners who want to stay in touch with what’s happening in their hometown. For more information, visit

We’ve also created a survey to gauge how we are doing, and we would really appreciate your feedback! Fill out the survey on our website before August 1 and you’ll be entered to win a family pass to the Movie Mill.

Lethbridge Living strives to create content that you won’t find anywhere else. We focus on local stories about the people who live, work, and play here, who make our community stronger by their contributions. We aim to inspire, enlighten or intrigue the mind. If you have an interesting idea to share, please email me at We also accept photo submissions of interesting places, people or scenery.

As always, thanks for reading!
