Lacombe Mayor Steve Christie joined special guests on Wednesday to welcome Scott Builders Inc. Operations Manager Mike Wagner, the Co-operators Advantage Insurance Group Owner Warren Schnoor, and Stantec Regional Leader, Alberta North and Territories, Todd Simenson as the newest sponsors for the Gary Moe Auto Group Sportsplex.
“On behalf of council, I am delighted to both thank and welcome Scott Builders as the public art sponsor, the Co-operators/Advantage Insurance Group as the concession sponsor, and Stantec as the sponsor of four dressing rooms within the sportsplex,” said Christie. “With their generous support Mike, Warren and Todd are making a positive and meaningful contribution to the community, and this helps the City better meet the long-term sports, fitness and recreational needs of Lacombe and area residents.”
The Gary Moe Auto Group Sportsplex is currently undergoing significant renovations through to January 2017. The renovations are based on feedback received from user groups and the public. Once complete, the refreshed facility will better serve all user groups, ensure that the facility – a major recreational hub in the region – meets the long-term needs of Lacombe and area residents and serve as the home ice for the CHL Lacombe Generals – 2016 Allan Cup Champions, officials have said.
“At Scott Builders, one of our values is to have a positive impact in the communities in which we live and work in,” said Wagner. “Many of our team members live in Lacombe and we are very pleased to provide a contribution to support community recreational and sport facilities. We are also excited to see what the local arts committee has chosen for the public art installations.”
Schnoor added, “We are very proud to be the concession sponsors for the newly renovated Gary Moe Auto Group Sportsplex. We believe sports and recreation facilities are an important part of all communities, and we are excited to play a small part in supporting those activities here in Lacombe.”
Simenson added local recreational facilities are such an important part of bringing a community together. “We are also pleased to extend our involvement with this sponsorship to help support the ongoing operations at the sportsplex, which contributes so much to the residents of Lacombe, Lacombe County, and surrounding communities.”
