LETHBRIDGE: A bid tour's coming to Lethbridge, as the Western Canada Summer Games looks for a host city in 2015.
The tour will stop in Lethbridge either on May 30th or 31st, or June 1st. An exact date is expected within the next few days.
Sports Bid Committee Chair Kevin Kvame noted that you can help bring the event to our city. He explained that leading up to the tour, you can help promote Lethbridge through social media and by visiting www.lethbridgesportcouncil.ca. He added that on the day of the tour, you can come along to the different venues they'll be showing off, so you can show your support.
Kvame went on to say that you can also keep an eye on the website to find out when the tour date is confirmed.
As for the impact on Lethbridge, it's expected that the Western Canada Summer Games would bring over $6-million dollars into the local economy, should our city be selected.
The other centres up for consideration are Medicine Hat, Fort McMurray, Airdrie and Lakeland County.
