Quesnel Multi-Centre News...

Out of Quesnel today:

1)  North Cariboo Joint Committee agrees to give Multi-Centre Fundraising Committee a budget of $105,000 for marketing and to hire a fundraiser coordinator with the intent to raise $20,000,000 in two years - see more details here

Editor's Note - I wish the Fundraising Committee the best of luck, but I fear with the state of the economy the way it is - I wonder if that goal ($20 million over two years) is too ambitious but understand why - November of 2013 is fast approaching and North Cariboo politicians will need to go back out and get support again if the Multi-Centre has not started building by then

2) Quesnel Cariboo Observer Editor Autumn MacDonald, in an editorial, explains why she thinks the community of Quesnel must get behind the $20 million fundraising goal for the new Multi-Centre.  See her editorial here

Sounds like Williams Lake and Quesnel may soon be competing for the same piles of money...that should be interesting.
One needs a new pool (and hopes for much more) and the other needs a new rink (and hopes for much more).
Let the games being!
