Leduc County, Alberta – More than 120 Leduc County residents gathered at the New Sarepta Agri-Plex last night to take part in Family Fun Night and get a sneak peek at the improved facility.
Families enjoyed carnival games, cookie decorating and bouncy houses — all at no charge. Attendees also got a glimpse of the vast improvements at the New Sarepta Agri-Plex, to be fully unveiled next month.
"The New Sarepta Agri-Plex is a true community hub and Leduc County is proud to host events like Family Fun Night at the facility," says Riley McCaig, Community Development Coordinator. "We look forward to hosting many more community events at the New Sarepta Agri-Plex."
Improvements at the New Sarepta Agri-Plex include the upgrade of dressing rooms and the creation of a seniors centre, fitness facility and community event space.
The New Sarepta Agri-Plex grand opening is set for June 7, 2014. Tickets are $50 per person and include a dinner, dance and auction, with entertainment provided by Danny Hooper. For more information, please contact Shelley Millar at 780-941-3730.
The enhancements are expected to cost $6.848 million, with Leduc County committing up to $6.7 million, to be reduced by grant funding, sponsorship commitments and community fundraising. Community groups have raised more than $250,000 to date.
