Dear editor;


Point of Interest Signs

Carl Stettler/Blumenau

Highway 12 East

Estonian – Highway 56 South

Content – Highway 21

The Alberta government has removed these important parts of Stettler’s history.

These commemorative landmarks reminded us of our roots and of the pioneers who left their homelands and endured the hardships to develop this area.

Although aging signs in various parts of Alberta have been restored money has run out to complete the project.

As a direct descendant of Swiss pioneers, I am looking for other interested parties who are willing to urge appropriate government officials to authorize money to complete the restoration.

For more information call Rose Wesner 403-742-5057.
