The name of the newly expanded arena and library in Blackfalds has been revealed.
On Thursday, it was announced the arena’s name will be the Eagle Builders Centre. Council accepted the naming rights facility sponsorship at a recent meeting.
The town broke ground on the arena expansion in mid-June.
“It is an honour to team up with a leading company and major contributor such as Eagle Builders who is also a partner in the construction of the new arena,” said Blackfalds Mayor Richard Poole.
Eagle Builders is based in Blackfalds/Lacombe County. It employs over 275 Blackfalds and surrounding area residents.
The new 1,300 seat arena will include a second ice surface, a 12,000 sq. ft. library, multi-purpose rooms, and the future home of the Blackfalds Bulldogs.
“As a local company who has been operating here for almost 20 years, we are honoured to have this opportunity to support an outstanding community project. We are very blessed to employ over 275 amazing people who will not only use this facility but also learn, grown and share lasting memories with their family and friends,” said Craig Haan, Director of Eagle Builders.
“My partners Kevin Kooiker, Dennis Haan and I are extremely proud of every team member in our company and we’re humbled to contribute to a community staple which will be used by many for years to come.”
