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 will take place Wednesday May 10th 2017 at Casa from
5:30pm - 7:30pm. This 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.
