Temperatures are rising and though it may still be a while before the first flowers of spring make their appearance, the city will soon be in bloom when the Canadian Cancer Society hosts its annual Daffodil Days April 3-5.
For three days, 10 locations across the city will be selling bunches of the beautiful blooms to raise money and awareness for cancer. Keri Griffith, revenue development co-ordinator with the Cancer Society’s Lethbridge office, explained that Daffodil Days have a strong history across the country, with the campaign spanning more than a half century.

Members of the Lethbridge Legion Pipe Band perform in a parade last summer in Lundbreck.

Pipers, drummers and highland dancers will highlight a Spring Fling and Ceilidh fundraising event for the Lethbridge Legion Pipe Band on Saturday.
“Ceilidh means ‘dance party’ in Gaelic and that’s exactly what we’re having,” says band spokesman David Kaminski.
This year marks the first time the annual fundraiser for the Pipe Band has been held in the spring, and organizers have planned it with a St. Patrick’s Day celebration theme, he says.

Although recent temperatures may indicate otherwise, spring is in fact just around the corner. The Helen Schuler Nature Centre has a lot more to celebrate this year than simply welcoming their busiest season, the centre celebrated its grand re-opening on Feb. 27.
While the centre remained open during much of their renovation, albeit in an alternate location, the facility returned to its original home nestled in the river banks at the base of the High Level Bridge. Coreen Putman, the centre’s nature interpretation co-ordinator, said while their temporary location exposed many new visitors to the centre, staff was anxious to return to their permanent location.

Cory Medd of Two Guys and a Pizza Place is just one of the many local business owners whose hard work has been recognized by the public in the annual Best of the Best survey.

The annual Academy Awards showcase is still a few days away, and moviegoers are anxiously waiting to see who claims the hardware honouring the best of the silver screen.
Locally, however, the winners for “Best Performers in Business” have already been determined, and unlike at the Oscars, it’s the public that determines the outcome.
The results of the Lethbridge Sun Times’ Best of the Best for 2014 have been announced, and this year, the annual survey recognizing the best local businesses shattered all previous highs for votes received, with a whopping 97,295. That’s far beyond the more than 31,000 votes received in 2013.

“Each evening will feature slide shows created by our members of their images put to music,” says Lorelei Hoffarth, president of the Lethbridge Photography Club.
“We have a wide variety of themes from flowers and landscapes to animals and portraits.”
The annual PhotoFusion event is being held in the Community Room at Casa, with the doors opening at 6:30 p.m., and the show, which is expected to run about two hours, starting at 7 p.m. both evenings. The event features free admission and is open to everyone.
