Representatives from the Killarney Ag Society and Westoba Credit Union announced funding in the amount of $10,000.00 for a new outdoor community stage from Westoba’s Inspire program.
While the stage is owned by the Killarney Ag Society, Killarney Ag Society President, Tammy Munroe said this funding will benefit the entire community of Killarney.
“Our entire community uses this stage, “said Munroe. “Community members and tourists, as well as groups such as the Heritage Home for the Arts, the Prairie Pioneer Club, Minor Sports Teams, and our Municipality use this space for free community events.”
Munroe said the funds from Westoba Inspire have been used to revitalize the current community outdoor stage. “Our outdoor stage consisted of an older trailer with a metal roof,” said Munroe. “By upgrading the stage to a more permanent structure, all our community groups will be able to utilize the stage for different events and possibly attract new events to our community.”
The funding from Westoba Inspire is part of Westoba’s 60th anniversary celebration. Read the full media release here – Killarney Ag Society receives funding from Westoba Inspire
