The Flin Flon Aqua Center Community Committee continues to work at fundraising for the Aqua Center renovations.
The committee is looking for volunteers to help with the Drive One 4 UR Community on June 3rd. It’s a fund raiser put on by Northland Ford this year supporting the Aqua Center Committee. For every test drive Ford donates 20 dollars to the committee up to six thousand dollars. They need help with the barbeque and registration tables. They can also use help with the beer garden during Homecoming June 29th. Volunteers willing to help the Committee can contact the Aqua Center.
Their big fund raiser is the sale of the FlinFlonopoly game during Homecoming with pre-sales available at Pharmasave until around June 15th.
The committee is also preparing forms for personal, family and corporate sponsorship with a variety of levels for donations as well as selling naming rights for the building. They will be approaching local businesses but will also approach national corporations who do business in the community. It is hoped with one third of the around seven million dollar cost raised locally the provincial and federal governments will share the other two thirds.
