Quadro Communications has climbed on board in supporting the Pyramid Centre, with a $100,000 donation made just before the start of the new year.
For their support, the Kirkton-based Internet and telephone service provider will receive advertising rights on the new Zamboni that will be used for the two ice pads in the Pyramid Recreation Centre. These advertising rights also include the current Zamboni, which will be used as a back-up once the ice pads are ready for use.
Quadro Communications chair Bill Denham says, "Quadro's goal is to supply state-of-the-art high-quality communications to our customers, we also consider it our role to support our community in other ways. We take pleasure in being able to provide support to community infrastructure that can be enjoyed by families for many years."
"This commitment from Quadro shows excellent community-minded leadership," said mayor Jamie Hahn. "I am thrilled to see the amount of support that is being given to this project by our business community."
New website up and running
The online home for the Centre's fundraising activities is now www.pyramidrecreationcentre.ca. The site went live this week and features plans, donor lists, coming events, a question-and-answer section, as well as a volunteer form.
