“Our Government’s investments in community infrastructure are ensuring growth and long-term prosperity across our country,” said Minister Toews. “I am pleased to see our investment in the Blumenort Community Centre already at work, and am proud that this funding is making it possible for the people of Blumenort to have access to a quality recreational facility for years to come.”

Funding of $27,148 is going towards renovations to the facility including repairing the building’s exterior and picnic area, upgrading the skating rink boards, washrooms and hot water system, and installing new flooring. The work done will improve the safety, accessibility and efficiency of the centre and will ensure it continues to serve the community long-term.

“The Rural Municipality of Hanover is thankful to receive this funding under the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund,” said Reeve Stan Toews. “The partnership between the Government of Canada, the Rural Municipality of Hanover and the Blumenort Recreation Association will allow the Town of Blumenort to continue to provide quality recreation to residents at this very important time of community growth and development.”
