ATCO Electric today announced a $25,000 donation to the capital fundraising campaign for the new Badlands Community Facility, a multi-use centre featuring the library, cultural centre, community hall and eventually an arena and curling rink.
The presentation was made at an appreciation breakfast held by ATCO on Friday morning with members of the Town of Drumheller staff, council and design, fundraising and steering committee members.
“At ATCO Electric, our business goes beyond the safe, reliable delivery of electricity,” says Bobbi Lambright, president, Operations Division, ATCO Electric. “We are pleased to support projects that enrich the quality of life of our service communities and enhance the health and wellness of local residents.”
“We appreciate the support of ATCO Electric for our new Community Facility,” says Jeff Hall, Fundraising Co-chair of the Badlands Community Facility. “This is a much needed facility for Drumheller and the local community. It will serve recreational, health and wellness and community needs for many generations to come. We are grateful to have corporate partners, like ATCO Electric, that are committed to making a difference to the communities they serve.”
Construction levels have increased as the facility nears completion. Siding and exterior work is being done to the building, the parking lot and roadways are being paved and the cenotaph will be in place in front of the building in time for Remembrance Day celebrations on November 11. The facility is set to open for public use in the new year.
