Grant will help with renovation project at Red Deer Curling Centre

A $750,000 provincial grant will go a long ways towards a large-scale renovation project at the Red Deer Curling Centre, says centre president Scott Dickson. Dickson said they applied for a capital grant and were surprised to get the full amount they requested. The announcement came within the last couple of weeks.

A $750,000 provincial grant will go a long ways towards a large-scale renovation project at the Red Deer Curling Centre, says centre president Scott Dickson.

Dickson said they applied for a capital grant and were surprised to get the full amount they requested. The announcement came within the last couple of weeks.

The curling centre had some money in the bank and was looking at a fundraising campaign of about $1 million so this $750,000 will take a big dent out of the campaign.

Last November, city council supported spending $5 million within the 2012 municipal capital budget towards the curling centre project.

That’s on top of the $1.175 million previously approved.

The $7.4-million renovation project is underway to modernize and add four new ice rinks to the 60-year-old Red Deer Curling Centre.

Dickson said he understands the renovations are on schedule.
