RCMP and Speedwatch donate nearly $6,000

On Sept 15, 2012, the Kimberley RCMP and Speedwatch held their annual charity golf tournament at Kimberley Golf Course, raising over $5,800.

In December the funds were distributed to a number of sports organizations in Kimberly.  Seven local clubs received between $400 and $900.  These included, Kimberley Minor Hockey, to allow persons to have better access to their programs, McKim School, to facilitate a grade 4 and 5 swim program, Northstar Figure Skaters, to assist in purchasing a theatrical curtain, Kimberly Minor Baseball and Kimberley Soccer Association, to purchase a line marker for the fields.  Kimberley Jackrabbit Ski program, to purchase training equipment, Kimberley Seahorse Swim program, to assist with the purchase of training equipment.

A grant of $1,250 was given to the Kimberley Ambulance Society’s Memorial Education Fund.  This is in recognition of the two ambulance attendants, Kim Weitzel and Shawn Currier who tragically lost their lives in 2006 while on duty. In addition a public swim session was purchased to promote physical fitness and family fun in the community.

The tournament saw a record number of golfers (110) this year.  But this endeavor would not have been possible without the generous support of the community business.
