On July 27, 2016, Ste. Anne Co-op will be presenting The Grande Pointe Homeowners Association with a cheque for $75,000 that will go towards a new four-season community clubhouse. The clubhouse will be built beside the outdoor rink to provide users with a place to warm up, access bathrooms and host other events.
The funding is provided by Co-op Community Spaces, a program supporting community-based recreation, conservation and urban agriculture projects. This year’s 21 recipients span all four western Canadian provinces and include local organizations and initiatives that enhance the quality of life in their community and deliver important local services.
Since launching in 2015, Co-op Community Spaces has provided almost $2.5 million to 37 local projects that benefit communities throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. This year’s Co-op Community Spaces projects include an aquatic centre in Vanderhoof, B.C., an educational kitchen in Calgary, AB, a community greenhouse in Regina, SK and a new community club house in Grande Pointe, MB.
