Swift Cur­rent Cen­ten­nial cal­en­dars now avail­able

Southwest Booster - - NEWS - SUB­MIT­TED

Just in time for the Christ­mas sea­son, the Swift Cur­rent Cen­ten­nial Cal­en­dars for 2014 are now on sale. Rep­re­sent­ing the City’s his­tory over the past 10 decades, the cal­en­dars are great keep­sakes that con­tain over 100 sto­ries and im­ages from Swift Cur­rent’s colour­ful his­tory.

Cre­ated in con­junc­tion with a de­sign team from the Art Gallery of Swift Cur­rent and im­ages and sto­ries gleaned from the Swift Cur­rent Mu­seum’s vast archives, Mu­seum Cu­ra­tor Lloyd Be­g­ley says it was dif­fi­cult to de­cide just what should rep­re­sent the City’s last 10 decades.

“We have so many great pieces that could have been in­cluded,” says Be­g­ley. “But there was only so much space avail­able so we needed to re­ally fo­cus on those peo- ple and sig­nif­i­cant events that we felt have most im­pacted the City in bring­ing it to the place it is to­day. Some of the events are large and some are small, but each has played an in­te­gral role.”

Cen­ten­nial Com­mit­tee Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Chair Elden Moberg says he be­lieves peo­ple will find great in­ter­est in the sto­ries that the cal­en­dar show­cases.

“They’re a great con­tri­bu­tion to our City’s Cen­ten­nial Celebration,” says Moberg. “Whether you’re a per­son who be­lieves they know a lot about the City’s his­tory, or you’re a new­comer to the com­mu­nity that knows very lit­tle, there’s go­ing to be items of in­ter­est for all, and they make a great gift for ev­ery­one with a strong pas­sion for the his­tory of our com­mu­nity.”

Cal­en­dars are on sale at a cost of $10 each and are avail­able at the Swift Cur­rent Mu­seum lo­cated across from the Wheat­land Mall and from City Hall in down­town Swift Cur­rent. Shop­pers will also be able to find the cal­en­dars at the Swift Cur­rent Mall through­out the Christ­mas shop­ping sea­son as well as at var­i­ous com­mu­nity trade shows through­out the year.
