Welcome to the

Another 'dream' has been built in Beaverlodge - or 'rebuilt' might be a better term. With the tremendous efforts of the Build a Dream Committee the kitchen at the Community Centre has had a makeover! The $50,000 Project received a huge boost at Monday night's Council meeting when a cheque for $27,000 was presented to the Town by volunteers from the BaD Committee. Representatives from BaD along with spokesperson for the group, volunteer Wayne Bekkerus, were on hand for the presentation. Bekkerus stated, "after wrapping up our initial fundraising efforts that started when the Committee formed in 2010 to raise money for the pool (helped raise over $1million), upgrading the Community Centre kitchen was an easy choice for the group given the need for better space and some new equipment. We approached the Town as a partner to help fund it and we got it done - it worked out good." The Town is so appreciative of the efforts of volunteers in the community. Chris Parker, CAO says, "We have so many great people helping out to make our community the best it can be. We can't thank the BaD volunteers enough for what they've given to make the CC Kitchen remake happen. We couldn't have done it without them or the support they get from our great community - Thank You!" With this latest project completed the BaD Committee is eager to put their efforts to help another dream come true for Beaverlodge. What that is will be decided at the Committee's next meeting on Wednesday, June 10 at 7pm in the Walker Room at the Towne Square (new pool facility). Committee Co-Chair, Craig Milliken encourages people to bring project ideas to the table in June. Milliken states, "we're a group of volunteers who have been the drivers behind our fundraising to date. We want folks from the community to come out to our next meeting to help us decide, 'what's the next project' we should take on." He added, "running our annual 'Comedy Night' in October has become our main fundraising event now. Volunteering for projects to help benefit our community is why we're all here and we're eager to see what comes next". With 'Volunteer Week' coming up in April what a great lead in to celebrating the tremendous impact volunteers have on our community. Hats off to our many volunteers and a special thanks to the BaD volunteers for this latest gift to our community here in Beaverlodge...building dreams one project at a time. See picture of BaD Volunteers in the renewed Community Centre here
