November 9, 2017 – The Capital Campaign Team is pleased to announce that they have secured naming rights of the Bezanson Regional Community Cultural Centre!

Knelsen Sand & Gravel Ltd. has committed to contribute $250,000 towards the project, including a cash portion, and gift in kind input toward the project.

Although the official name of the facility has not yet been confirmed, Knelsen Sand & Gravel Ltd. will hold the naming rights of the facility for 10 years. They will be working with our Capital Campaign Team to determine what our new Centre will be officially named, once the doors open sometime in the Summer of 2018.

Capital Campaign Manager Laura LaValley says, “This input couldn’t have come at a better time. We know our community is getting excited about the Centre, and now that it’s under construction and we can see the progress, it will be great to have a new name for the facility too!” She adds, “Knelsen’s do business in our community, and they wanted an opportunity to give back. We certainly appreciate their support in building small communities like Bezanson.”

Building Committee Chairperson, Rick Friesen shared, “This donation is huge for us. We still have work to do on the fundraising side of things, to ensure we can open the facility and have it ready to use, but this contribution is so appreciated! We are thrilled to partner with Knelsen’s to provide a quality facility for our community.”

On behalf of the Bezanson Ag. Society and the entire community of Bezanson, we want to extend heart-felt thanks to Knelsen Sand & Gravel Ltd. for their support of our project. We look forward to many great times using our new Centre! Stay tuned for further details when we unveil the official name of the Bezanson Regional Community Cultural Centre!
