Dunkley Lumber Ltd. has become a part of it with a generous contribution of $140,000. The locally based sawmill has joined many in the corporate community in supporting the North Cariboo arena project.
“At Dunkley, we believe that investing in our community is investing in our business and our employees. We are pleased to be a part of this project and along with our staff, look forward to opening day at the new arena,” said Robert Novak, President.
“I would like to sincerely thank Dunkley Lumber for supporting this project and their continued support of our north Cariboo communities,” stated CRD Vice-Chair Ted Armstrong. “Your monetary support for this project is a testament of your dedication to the north Cariboo and its residents.”
“Dunkley Lumber is one of our largest employers in the region and we are pleased to have them on board,” says Mayor Mary Sjostrom. “We are grateful that Dunkley has been a corporate sponsor of many new enterprises in Quesnel and thank them for their kind contribution towards a new community arena.”
The new arena will feature a 1,600 seat NHL-sized arena and accompanying event and assembly areas.
