As some of you may know, I am a volunteer with the Calgary Stampede working with the Ag Media Committee. This year, of course, represents a milestone for the Stampede as it celebrates its 100 year anniversary.
The Light Horse Committee also celebrates a milestone this year, celebrating 35 years with the Stampede! I had the opportunity to interview Gus McCollister, long-time volunteer with the Committee. I really enjoyed conversing with this colourful lady! Check it out on the Calgary Stampede Blog:
Gus McCollister: “Young people really are the necessary lifeblood of [the Light Horse] Committee. They contribute to discussions and they are enthusiastic sources of new ideas. These young people always seem to come up with ways to make things run better too!”
