Rotary Club supports Stettler Community Recreation Track

The Rotary Club of Stettler has contributed $10,000 to the Stettler community recreation track.

Stettler’s current running track, a legacy project from the 1991 Alberta Summer Games, was originally expected to last 15 years, and the new track should have double that lifespan.

Due to the condition of the current track, the rubberized material has deteriorated significantly and is unlikely to last another year.

“With a renewed track surface, Stettler will be able to once again host track and field tournaments, including the opportunity to bring in people who may be interested in living in Stettler and the great surrounding communities,” Clearview Public Schools said in a news release.

“All members of our communities (and students) will be able to maintain a healthy and well lifestyle on a high-quality rubberized running and walking surface for over the next 20 years, if not longer.”

The project will cost $425,000. There is a combined $370,000 financial commitment from the three local governments and service clubs.
