BMROSS is pleased to support the Inspiring Our Future Campaign through a donation of $25,000 towards the planned renovations of the community centre. Renovations include the expansion of the dressing rooms, creation of an unobstructed heated viewing area, new entrance and foyer, roof replacement and several other modernizations. The goal is to modernize the facility and make it a continued recreational hub for the whole community.
Dale Erb, BMROSS President notes the group’s efforts to finance the project through senior government grants and community fundraising are impressive. We wish to thank the IOF group for inviting us to participate as a corporate sponsor. The Philosophy at BMROSS is that we consider ourselves to be a partner with the municipalities we work with.
BMROSS also supports communities in the wider world. We are a corporate sponsor of Friends of the Orphans Canada, a charity supporting children at risk in 9 countries of Latin America. This includes the health, education and nutrition support of children like Esteffany and her family in El Salvador where only 73% of girls are literate. Read more at www.fotocan.org.
