The Coaldale Curling Rink received a boost today from the federal government.
Lethrbidge MP Jim Hillyer, on behalf of Lynne Yelich, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification, today announced support for the Coaldale Curling Rink under the Canadian Government’s Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund (CIIF).
“I am proud to see the Town of Coaldale benefit from our government’s continued investment in the renewal of community infrastructure,” said Hillyer. “This investment will help create jobs, growth and will support the prosperity of the community for years to come.”
The government’s investment of $96,547 will support the installation of a new refrigeration plant at the curling rink, as well as other improvements to the mechanical room in the arena. These upgrades will increase the energy efficiency of the facility and ensure residents can continue to enjoy this recreational space for years to come.
“These are exciting times for residents,” said Coaldale Mayor Kim Craig. “Any time we are able to collaborate with the federal government on common goals it is great for the community. With significant repairs to our curling rink on the horizon, this announcement comes just in time. It also provides a boost of energy to the Coaldale Granite Club, whose hard work and dedication is bringing the 2014 Senior Master’s Tournament to town.”
