Williams Lake & District Credit Union branch manager, Georg Oberprieler, recently presented a cheque to Kevin O’Neill, president of the Lobelco Community Club. Just prior to this year’s Fall Fair, the Lobelco Club was forced to do an urgent replacement of the east side grandstand (see photo in September 25, CMNews).

The total project cost $11,300, of which $8,700 was donated. In addition to the Credit Union, which contributed $5,000 from the 2013 Community Investment Fund, in kind support was received from Bettor Enterprises (Oran & Betty Hoppe), Kopas Contracting (David & Heather Kopas), 3-R’s Logging (Dan Fuller), and Mid-Valley Loading (Troy Gurr). The Lobelco Club welcomes any additional donations to assist with covering the cost of the project.
