A cool boost to Castlegar recreation

$1,000 cheques were presented to four groups

As part of the Castlegar and District Recreation Commission and Zellstoff Celgar Zamboni sponsorship program, $1,000 cheques were presented to four groups ­­­— Castlegar Skating Club, Castlegar Minor Hockey, Castlegar Rebels and Selkirk Saints. This program was initiated when the new Zamboni was purchased last winter. This five year program not only gives back to the ice users in Castlegar but it also contributes funds to the community for special programs and events. Seen above at the presentation were (from left to right) Lawrence Chernoff, Commission Chairperson; Kim Verigin, Selkirk College; Cherie Hanvold, Zellstoff Celgar; Jesse Dorrans, Castlegar Rebels;  Venie Cheveldave, Skating Club and Jim Crockett,  Manager of Recreation.
