Third-Round Winner

Cassils Community Centre Building Committee

Cassils Community Centre Building Committee was chosen by Munson and Area Community Association as the third-round winner of the this year’s UFA Get ‘n’ Give Contest.

Cassils would like to build a new 275 seat community centre to replace the existing one built in 1923. The original building is aging beyond repair and too small to meet the growing needs of the surrounding communities. The centre is the core of the community and has been uniting the residents of Cassils and Antelope Creek for close to 100 years. It provides a place to gather, educate and nurture the community way of life.

“We believe it takes a community to raise a family and we want to give our children and their children a place to continue to raise their families and keep the Cassils Community alive for another 90 years.”
