RAYMOND - Now that the Kraft Celebration Tour has moved on from Raymond, the prize
money can be put to use.
Kraft handed over a $25,000 cheque to go
towards the new Victoria Park multi-purpose sports field complex. It will
include three full sized grass football/rugby/soccer fields, as well as an
artificial grass field, stadium seating, lights, and scoreboard.
has also set aside $1.8 million in their capital budget over the next three
years and Westwinds School Division has donated $300,000 for the project.
Construction will be completed in phases starting this fall with the
irrigation and drainage for the three grass fields and hopefully that will be
ready by next spring.
The complex will be located in the empty land north of the stampede grounds
and race track.
