Greetings from Southern Alberta.
Another busy fall for the Lethbridge Branch got under way
on Sept. 27, as 40 members attended our first Lunch and Learn
session of the year. All five mayoralty candidates attended
this function and spoke to their views on major challenges
A technical tour of SRI Manufactured Homes directed by Ken
Josuttes, P.Eng., was held on Oct. 25. It was a fascinating
after-hours tour as participants were able to fully explore
the manufacturing floor and learn how many engineering skills
are required to manage and oversee such complex operations.
The Lethbridge Branch continued its support of local excellence
in science and math education at the high school level through
the presentation of scholarships in the fall to deserving
students. Lethbridge APEGGA volunteers also manned a career
fair booth in Taber on Nov. 1. Lethbridge Branch members then
hosted visiting high school students at their places of employment
on Nov. 20. The annual teachers award was presented to Vince
Peters of Immanuel Christian High School.
At a Lunch and Learn session on Jan. 31, Lorne Armstrong
presented an informative talk on investing in a low interest
rate environment. The 2001-2002 events concluded with a well
attended President's Visit on Feb. 26, National Engineering
Week activities involving the engineering transfer students
at the University of Lethbridge, and our traditional golf
tournament held June 21.
The Lethbridge Branch Annual General Meeting was held on
June 6,and resulted in the executive. Two new members have
been added, Byron Buzunis, P.Eng., and Tony Klauwers, P.Eng.
The new branch chair is Adam McDonald, E.I.T, Elisabeth Van
Mill, P.Eng. will continue as treasurer, and Mike Van Doorn,
E.I.T. is now secretary. The new executive will be gathering
to develop a schedule of events for the 2002-2003 year, watch

dedicated volunteers for their work over the last year and
the work that they will contribute over the next.
