Rotary Club of Lethbridge East members joined in the 2019 Whoop-Up Parade on August 20, 2019, to celebrate the Whoop-Up spirit and to share some Rotary love with the community. The antique Model-T is owned and driven by RCLE member Frank Johansen. In the car with Frank is RCLE Past President Bob Jones (back seat), and Lauren Machacek - winner of the inaugural Rotary Exhibition Park AG Scholarship valued at $10 000. They are all wearing green t-shirts in support of the Honorary Parade Marshalls, the Boulet Family, whose son Logan was one of the members of the Humboldt Broncos hockey team who was killed in a bus crash in April 2018. All proceeds from the parade entries will be donated to the Logan Boulet Fund.
Also joining in on the Whoop-UP fun was Rotary District 5360 Past District Governor Dan Doherty, and his wife Marlene, driving their Rotary inspired motorhome.
