Cheers 4 Lethbridge

Cheers 4 Lethbridge is a new initiative designed to encourage everyone to work together to make Lethbridge an amazing city for all of us to enjoy.

“We’re asking everyone to do 4 things that will make a positive difference, big or small, and then spread the word about the great things they have done,” says Terra Plato, CEO of the Lethbridge Public Library. “Volunteer, pick up litter or participate in a project, there are so many simple ways that people can make a positive difference in their community.”

People can get involved in the campaign online at www.cheers4lethbridge.ca or www.facebook.com/cheers4lethbridge/ or by visiting the Main Branch of the Lethbridge Public Library or City Hall to post their actions in-person on one of the Cheers 4 Lethbridge press walls.
