The Town of Olds installed a legacy bench at the Aquatic Centre to honour a longtime resident who passed away in 2003.
Lester Woodroe Tribe (Oct. 17, 1921 – Nov. 11, 2003) was born and raised in Olds. He spent many years farming and raising cattle east of the town in the Lone Pine District.
Tribe donated $193,707.85 – the largest individual donation – to help fund the Olds Aquatic Centre.
After selling his farm and cattle, he relocated to Armstrong, B.C. for his retirement years.
