A cheque for $25,000 has been donated to the new Rosebud Centre from The World’s Largest Dinosaur (WLD) Legacy Fund. On Wednesday, April 21, officials from both groups gathered at the building site in Rosebud for the official presentation, which saw Chamber President Cindy Clark offer congratulations to Rosebud Theatre’s Board Chair, Jason Knibb.
“The WLD creates funds to donate to worthy projects like this in Drumheller and area, and we (the Chamber) are happy to be able to assist Rosebud in their current project”, Ms. Clark told The Mail. In a prior donation, a $10,000 cheque was received in 2005 during the planning stages for the Centre, according to Chamber Manager, Heather Bitz. The $5,000,000 project includes a kitchen, eating area and gift shop expansion on the main floor, with convention meeting space available on the second floor. Total space will reach close to 10,000 sq.ft., and is being built immediately north of the current building. Accepting on behalf of the Board, Mr. Knibb commented that they are “very grateful to the Chamber and the Legacy Fund for the donation in helping us realize our dream.”
