Overnight Shelter

MIRIAM OSTERMANN
Times Associate Editor

Forging ahead with construction to
meet their September deadline, the
Malting doors open Strathmore Overnight Shelter (SOS)
just defeated an onerous hurdle, as a
result of thousands of dollars worth of
donated manpower and materials that
Page 17 cut the upwards-of-$100,000 cost to
nearly half.
Volunteers were praised at a barbe-
cue held last weekend, especially the
Alberta-Saskatchewan-based company
Legacy Fire Protection, which saved the
non-profit society $9,000 in installa-
tion, consulting and engineering plans,
and using their connections to reduce
the final cost of a sprinkler system and
a fire suppression system to $60,000.
New challenges “We’ve got an amazing team of peo-
ple who are centred on certain core
values and they wanted to be a part of
it,” said Carl Pollard, owner of Legacy
Fire Protection.
“With homelessness, there are a lot
of varying reasons. There are vulner-
able people in society and they need

Family Centre Upgrades - As part of the Canada 150 celebrations the Town of
Strathmore was awarded a federal grant of $450,000 from Western Economic
Diversification – Canada 150 Infrastructure Program to rebuild the ice plant. The
project includes a rebuild of the refrigeration plant for the twin arena to improve
operational efficiency. The facility remains open, but all ice sports are unavailable. All
programming will resume mid-September.
Community Pavilion - Kinsmen Park will see some enhancements to the area along with
a new Community Pavilion which will be constructed near the North area of the Park
thanks to generous donations and support of the community. The North parking lot on
the East half of the Park is temporarily closed during construction of the Pavilion and
other enhancements.

CELEBRATING CANADA 150 BY ENHANCING OUR COMMUNITY
STRATHMORE

There are numerous facility upgrades and enhancements happening in Strathmore this
summer. They are all part of the capital improvements the Town is undertaking during
Canada’s celebratory year.
The work is planned over the next few months and like a house renovation, there is a
lot going on and it may get messy at times with extra construction around town.
Some of the ‘rooms’ under renovation include the Aquatic Centre, the Family Centre,
Lambert Centre (including the Library, FCSS Offices and Senior Drop In/Happy Gang
Centre), Kinsmen Park including the addition of a community Pavilion, Gray’s Park,
Town pathways, an area within the Downtown core and the Town Offices.
The goals are to work safely and efficiently to complete the projects with as little
disruption as possible and to keep residents and visitors informed throughout the
construction.
