Hello...Just thought I'd add this bit of info. After the Calgary SGGEE
Convention, (which was great btw), I visited Banff near Calgary, and was
interested in a bit of the history there. The First Lutheran Church in Banff
was Est. by R.T. Rundle, and a huge mountain mass was also named after
him...Mount Rundle...beautiful! Exquisite to see.

Robert Rundle was responsible for visiting the native Indians in the early
1800's...bringing the Lutheran faith to the area. I've captured images of
the Church & Mount Rundle for anyone interested, I can privately send jpgs.
