“Thank you so much Swan Valley Co-op for the grant money!

Congratulations to Swan Valley Co-op on their 80th Anniversary and how they continue to help make the Swan River Valley a great place to live and raise our kids,” said Marni Zamzow, of Swan River Junior Golf Club.
“The Baseball Legacy Committee is made up of community minded volunteers that want to add value to our community and community held events. We would like to thank the Swan Valley Co-op Ltd. for their generous donation towards our baseball concession and storage facility project and wish your organization a very happy 80th Birthday.” said Tracy Boychuk, of SR Baseball Legacy Committee.
“We’re grateful for the 80 years of support from our members. Being locally owned by our members and having the ability to give back to our communities are things we’re proud of. The aim of these projects is to bring people together, creating places for everyone and building a lasting legacy that benefits our communities into the future,” said Colin Peters, General Manager of Swan Valley Co-op.
