Plans underway for upgrade to picnic shelter

Blackburn Park will be getting another new upgrade in the next few years.

The Rotary Club of Salmon Arm presented council with a $50,000 donation, that will be going towards a brand new picnic shelter at the park.

“It’s been used and is used a whole lot by citizens in Salmon Arm,” said Doug Murray current Rotary Club president of the existing picnic shelter. “I know how much we need to improve that facility.”

All members of council were in favour of the donation.

Coun. Alan Harrison said he appreciates what the Rotary does for the Salmon Arm area, and he thinks the picnic shelter is a needed addition.

Coun. Marg Kentel agreed that the project was a good idea.

“It’s a great way to help the community,” she said.

Although the project has been approved, preparations won’t begin until September.
