David Grantham, owner of M&M Meat Shops in Castlegar, became the new president of the Castlegar Youth Soccer Association on Monday, Oct. 21.

Grantham said his one-year term promises to bring some interesting developments.

“We had a great meeting,” said Grantham. “Both the evening and morning clubs of Castlegar Rotary did a presentation during the AGM and they want to do a Rotary project at Twin Rivers Park consisting of storage lockers, concessions and a picnic area.”

“It’s something we’re going to be talking about with the city; it’s pretty exciting,” he said.

He added the association has money set aside and looks forward to going forward with the project, something he feels will help in drawing tournaments to the area.
