At Friday night’s Pronghorns game, a brief cheque presentation ceremony took place to recognize financial government support in the renovations of the Pronghorn Men’s dressing room at Nicholas Sheran Arena. Here is the statement that was announced at the game.
“At this time we would like to direct your attention to centre ice for an important presentation. Please welcome Greg Weadick, Lethbridge West MLA, Alderman Jeff Carlson from the City of Lethbridge, Peter Neufeld and Don Gatto from the Pronghorn Men’s Hockey Alumni Association.
In September, the Pronghorn Men’s Hockey Team moved into their new, professional quality Team Room. This renovation was made possible because of a partnership between the Province of Alberta, the City of Lethbridge and the Pronghorn Men’s Hockey Alumni Association.
Pronghorn Hockey is proud of their new room and is happy to supports the use of that space by Hockey Academies, Camps and regional and provincial competitions.
Under the guidance of the City of Lethbridge, retrofits of the original building have been ongoing to bring the facility up to par with the new additions, and make Nicholas Sheran Arena a 1st class facility for hosting events. We appreciate the City fast tracking the work and their leadership and financial support for the project.
The Province of Alberta, through the Community Facility Enhancement Program provided a $100,000 grant to help fund the renovations to the building. CFEP is a provincial program that supports quality of life and citizen well-being initiatives, in communities across the province. Greg Weadick, Lethbridge West MLA, is with us tonight, and is pleased to show his support for this community based project, by presenting a $100,000 cheque to the representatives from the Pronghorn Men’s Alumni.
On behalf of the pronghorn Men’s Hockey Team thank you to all of our partners for your contribution to this project.”
