Update on our Balfour Community Park and Playing Field revitalization project: We are so excited that work has begun; the outer edge of the field has been cleared of scotch broom by Don Renzie Holdings; Don and Trisha also generously contributed the new fence posts, gate and fixed up the driveway. The foundation for the multipurpose Gazebo has been started and hopefully soon we’ll see the structure taking shape. Thanks to West Arm Construction for fitting us into a very busy work schedule. Funding for the structure has come from the Columbia Basin Trust grant and the Balfour Recreation Commission. We have local engineering firm Pennco Engineering, Bernie Penner, to thank for contributing the engineering and permit work for the gazebo. We will definitely have to create a Wall of Appreciation when this is done as so very many folks have contributed their time, costs and support towards bringing improvements to the Balfour and area communities. Check back for more updates as the project continues.
