Eleven years ago, the Heart of our City Committee was created to facilitate, support and promote a vibrant downtown community on behalf of Lethbridge City Council.
In 2016, the Heart of Our City Committee commemorated the 10th anniversary of the Heart of Our City Master Plan with a celebratory event. The event, which recognized individuals, businesses and organizations for their outstanding efforts in enhancing our downtown, was well-received. There are still many outstanding individuals, businesses and organizations deserving of special recognition so the Heart of Our City Committee has decided to hold the event again this year.
The second annual “Celebrate Downtown” evening event recognizes all of the hard work that has been done, and continues to be done by the people, organizations, businesses and events within our community that have participated in creating, maintaining and promoting Lethbridge’s downtown.
This is an event to celebrate the downtown community and all are welcome on a first come first serve basis. Capacity is limited, so please RSVP for this event early!
If you have any questions about the event or registration, please contact [email protected].
