In early December, I led the Christmas tree lighting at Lethbridge city hall by also kicking off the campaign to donate food and toys to the food banks. Its important to inspire others by leading by example. My December mayor's column was also focussed on the importance of giving and caring for others.
I joined the steering committee for this inspiring project just 5 months ago. The enthusiasm and talent of the group is amazing and I hope will be contagious. I hope everyone can find this a new way to celebrate Lethbridge and share the unlimited opportunities to connect and participate.
Today an amazing group of students from U of L presented an afternoon of opera. All proceeds from the performance are going to support some Syrian families arriving in Lethbridge shortly. All performers need an appreciative audience and I was pleased to be there today and applaud the talent of these artists.
