‘Raising the Roof’ project progresses

MLA Jackie Tegart and Area H Director, Brad Hope were invited to have a look at the progression of the Tulameen “Raise the Roof” project.

June Hope and MLA Jackie Tegart are given a first hand look at the newly placed forms at the Tulameen Community Outdoor Ice Arena. Mardi Hassell and Brenda Upton (members of the Tulameen Community Club) share a few laughs with the ladies while giving them the tour.

While on a visit to Tulameen last week, MLA Jackie Tegart and Area H Director, Brad Hope were invited to have a look at the progression of the Tulameen “Raise the Roof” project.

Through the efforts of the community, the RDOS and the aid of a Provincial Grant in the amount of $240,000 (designated to assist in getting communities outside and active) the project has a total of $300,000.

Reinforced metal legs will hold the roof over the NHL sized outdoor rink. Having the rink covered will enable the community to make use of it throughout all seasons and weather.

During the visit on Friday, both MLA Tegart  and Director Hope were pleased to see the freshly poured forms, to see and hear of the projects progression as explained by Mardi Hassell.

Hassell says there are many community members who have been working hard to make this project a reality. They and those who have assisted with funding and construction are to be commended. Funding; MLA Jackie Tegart, Area H Director Brad Hope and the Tulameen Community Club. Construction; Romard, Red Iron, Reichert Sales, Bob Reichert Backhoe, Tom Reichert Rentals, Fred and Company Builders, Asplundh, Cool Creek Agencies, Morphy Resaw and LMS Reinforcing Steel Group.
