K-40 Club donates $2,000 to new facility



The Drumheller K-40 Club has donated $2,000 to the Badlands Community Facility, the first time the group has made a charitable donation in 20 years. The club does no fundraising, but through careful accounting management by club treasurer Ed Castonguay, the motion to donate money passed at the club at a recent meeting. It was recognized that the new community facility was an important asset to Drumheller and members wanted to show support for the committee.

As well, the club sent $500 to Haitian relief from the earthquake experienced in January. K-40 Clubs across Canada are affiliates with the only completely Canadian service group in existence, the Kinsmen. The Drumheller K-40 Group has over 30 members and meets once a month. The construction of the Badlands Community Facility is progressing on schedule. The architect firm of Graham Edmunds Cartier is currently working on the design and the preliminary site work is underway. The construction will start with a field house, running track, fitness centre, meeting facilities and a new public library followed by an arena and curling rink as funding becomes available.
