Scope and content

The Rural Initiatives program was set up by Lethbridge Community College in the spring of 1989, as an experimental program designed to help rural people and communities help themselves in assessing their situations and looking to the future. A Milo Rural Initiatives group was formed in 1990, and was accepted as a Milo & District Agricultural Society Committee in June of 1992. Committee status was a benefit for the group as it meant that they wouldn’t have to pay for hall rental for the various activities they sponsored, and in addition, would be covered under the Ag Society’s liability insurance for all events.

The Rural Initiatives Committee spearheaded many ongoing community projects, such as pot luck meals welcoming new community members, Children’s Dinner Theatre, community business directories, volunteer appreciation events, and the bussing of area children to Vulcan for swimming lessons. Other major initiatives were the development of a 2.5 mile bike path from Milo out to Lake McGregor, and the coordination of Casino fundraisers through the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission.

In 2005, the Milo & District Agricultural Society Rural Initiatives Committee moved to disband, with their remaining funds being designated for bike path maintenance and the sponsorship of a community Christmas hayride / party.

The sous-fonds consists of minute books, correspondence, community reports and surveys, ledgers, photographs and ephemera relating to the activities of the Rural Initiatives Committee, much of it organized by the Rural Initiatives Committee in a large white binder.

The sous-fonds has been arranged into the following series: Working Papers, Meeting Minutes, Financial Records, Bike Path Project.
