Oh, how Wetaskiwin's grown
Did you sing Happy Birthday to the City of Wetaskiwin on Sunday? On May 9, The City of Wetaskiwin, along with Medicine Hat and Lethbridge, celebrated 115 years of incorporation. These were the first cities incorporated into the young province of Alberta with Calgary (1894) and Edmonton (1904) having already been incorporated when what we refer to as Alberta was still a district of the Northwest Territories. Of course, the history of our area goes back much further. Oral traditions tell us the land has been inhabited for 500 generations, and archaeological evidence dates back at least 8,000 years.
