Photo Exhibit - An Historical Look at WLTC
Come check out the history of WLTC through a photo display. Over the last few years, Angela Narth (former Board Director) started to collect and archive WLTC memorabilia. Along came Alison Marshall (Club Member) who approached Angela to combine their efforts. Alison is working on a 5-year research project to understand the history of sport participation in Canada. Through her work, she has collected photographs from sports events coast to coast and combed through the archives at Sport Manitoba and Archives Manitoba, specifically searching for references to tennis in Manitoba and WLTC. Together, Angela and Alison co-curated the resulting photo exhibition to be displayed at the Open House. WLTC is very grateful to Alison for including WLTC in her research and bringing to us an historical look at WTLC. We encourage everyone to view this exhibition. A permanent display will be arranged.
