100+ Women Who Care Hanna were pleased to present Brett Peterson on behalf of the Hanna Curling Club with a donation of $5,425.
The Hanna Curling Club is primarily volunteer. Positions include board members, club members that help organize leagues and bonspiels, volunteer bar staff, and also paid members which include ice makers and cleaning staff.
The Club has been operating out of its current location since the early 80’s. The Club currently has an agreement in place with the Town of Hanna that allows us to use the ice level during the winter for curling as well as manage the lounge area year round. The Town and the Club have also worked out a deal to assist the club with operating costs
The club’s facilities are starting to show their age and it was decided that a bathroom renovation in the upstairs lounge area would be priority. Even with the financial assistance in place from the Town, about 80 percent of the Curling Club’s funds are committed to operating costs.
The Hanna Curling Club recognizes that the gift from 100 Women Hanna will go a long way to help renovate the upstairs bathrooms. The renovation will ensure that the facilities reflect the love and passion that the members have for this game as well as ensuring the community has access to a place that the public can also enjoy for years to come.
