On March 7, 2015, one of Medalta’s earliest and strongest supporters – Reinhold ‘Reiny’ Lehr – passed away. Reiny and his family believe in community and have always been quick to lend support to Medalta and many other worthy causes in Medicine Hat. His full obituary can be found here.
A memorial service to honour Reiny’s life is being held at Medalta, where him and his family have been involved since the 1980s.
Medalta’s Short Grass Ranches Education Centre is named in honour of Reiny and his family’s decades of support.
As we celebrate Reiny’s life, Medalta’s museum will be closed to the public on Friday, March 13, 2015. Thank you for understanding.
