Representatives from the Elton Community Centre and Westoba Credit Union met on November 30th to announce funding in the amount of $3,000 in support of the purchase of a new upgraded score clock for the arena.  

The Elton Community Center (ECC) is located just five minutes north of Brandon, MB in the hamlet of Forrest. ECC Treasure, Emma Kohinski recognizes the importance of this facility to not only Forrest but the surrounding area.  

“The ECC is an integral part of our community and provides recreation and sport opportunities for children at a much lower cost than programs that run in larger cities,” said Kohinski.  ” In the past we have had approximately 50% of our registrations from RM of Elton residents, the other 50% coming from Brandon and other communities such as Douglas, Justice, Chater, etc.”
