Brandon Area Community Foundation celebrates Manitoba’s 150 Birthday!

Through the Build 150 program, BACF celebrated our Province’s 150th anniversary by leaving a $100,000 legacy with bricks and mortar projects!

Thank you to The James Richardson & Sons, Limited for contributing $50,000 to BACF in matching funds for projects that will have a lasting impact and leave a legacy in our community.

Keystone Agricultural & Recreational Centre awarded a $40,000 grant.

This Build 150 project is converting the greenspace area surrounding the stage in the treed area near 13th Street on the Keystone Centre grounds, in the 100-year-Patmore-Forrest. This project will be developed in phases to revitalize the area into a useful outdoor community space for all. The  funding provided from the Build Manitoba 150 initiative will complete phase 1 of the project. Phase 1 includes installation of a 60 x 140 concrete slab to house a three season clear-top tent for events as well as installation of an additional 30 x 30 concrete slab adjacent to large slab with a permanent, open pavilion roof structure. The focus in this area will be on weddings, farmer markets and cultural celebration events, as well as for community programming, such as Music in the Parks, youth day camps and senior’s programming.
