PICTURE BUTTE: A lot can happen in a year and a lot of money can be raised for a community
On Thursday morning, there was a gathering at Dorothy Dalgliesh School in
Picture Butte, to celebrate three major donations, totaling $67,000, toward
construction of a new playground.
Lethbridge-East MLA Bridget Pastoor presented a $40,000 Community Facilities
Enhancement Program grant. Also, Ray Schlamp, representing Richardson Pioneer
Ltd. in Nobleford, presented a $10,000 gift; and County of Lethbridge
Councillor Morris Zeinstra, presented a $17,000 grant from the Land Trust
With other fundraising completed over the past year, the school has the
$97,500 it needs to proceed with construction of a new playground that will
replace the old wooden structure at the north end of the school.
The new playground will be built by volunteers on August 9th and 10th. They
have the money and now, they just need the volunteers! If you can help, call
Palliser schools at 403-328-4111.
