How to Read the Site:

We have tried to capture the story of the Lethbridge Maple Leafs and provide a site to post stories, documents, links and photos of their incredible journey to the Championship.

To read their great story from the beginning, scroll to the bottom of the site to part 1 and work your way up through the 34 parts (You may have to click on “older posts” at the bottom to get to part 1). Each part is in chronological order and describes a part of the journey and many contain photos (We continue to add new photos to these posts as we get them).

After part 34 we are posting current related activities, stories and photos from the Galt Museum & Archives, Lethbridge Hurricanes, City of Lethbridge and private collections, as they become available. If you have a photo or story contribution for the site we would be happy to post it.

Lethbridge Maple Leafs Homecoming, Part 33

Coming Home

The Lethbridge Maple Leafs arrived home in Lethbridge, Alberta during a raging spring blizzard.
The first evening the Leafs were guests at a banquet with many speeches and greetings.  The next night a huge dance was held in their honour with 2,500 in attendance.

This was followed the next day by  a one mile long parade.  Each Maple Leaf road in a convertible and all Lethbridge lined the streets. 5,000 school children waved school colours along the route. The parade ended at the steps of city hall.  On top of city hall a huge banner read, Welcome Home Champs.
Lethbridge stores had windows decorated for them.
