Co-op Donates $80,000 For Ice Plant Upgrades

June 14, 2021: As provinces across Western Canada take steps to re-open, Co-op Community Spaces is funding projects that will help bring communities back together.

This year, Co-op is providing $80,000 to upgrade the Vermilion ice rink which will benefit the local community and many local teams for years to come.

“It is an honor to have our organization and project to be the recipient of the Community Spaces Grant. As you know the money will be put towards the upgrade to our community ice plant. Like most small towns on the prairies the two ice rinks and curling rink is the hub in our community and the loss of it would have been detrimental to our citizens and businesses. Co-op has been part of our community for many years and for many years to come. Thanks again for being so easy to work with on this grant process.” said Kevin Martin, Vermilion Rink Facility Enhancement board chair.

Co-op Community Spaces has been developed to help protect, beautify and improve spaces across Western Canada. As our community begins to re-open after the COVID-19 pandemic, we are reminded of the value these projects bring in connecting and improving our communities.
