EXCITING NEWS - MRAS Arena Rebuild Project

A big thank you to MRAS President, Brent Foster and Treasurer, Nancy Seaman for coming before MD Council today.  They brought Council up to speed on the vision, direction, and progress of the new arena currently being built at the MRAS along with all the incredible ideas for funding and new opportunities at the site.

I was able to visit the facility under construction and am very excited about the direction it is taking and how amazing a facility it will be upon completion.

There was some exciting news that came out of the meeting before Council but unfortunately, I cannot share that news until next week when the meeting minutes are ratified.  So STAY TUNED and be sure to check back next week for that!

The MD of Foothills is still accepting donations to go towards the project on behalf of the MRAS.  If you are interested in donating, CLICK HERE for the form or call the MRAS directly at 403-931-3411.
