Baker Creek Gymkhana Grioundsd receives $6,250 from Co-op

Natalie Fusztner nominated Baker Creek Gymkhana Grounds for funding

Co-op is protecting beautifying and enhancing spaces across Western Canada, including Baker Creek Gymkhana Grounds in Quesnel.

In May, Co-op asked western Canadians to nominate the spaces they love in their community as part of this year’s Co-op Community Spaces contest. From thousands of entries, Co-op selected four winners – one in every western Canadian province – including Natalie Fusztner, who nominated the Baker Creek Gymkhana Grounds.

For her efforts, Fusztner received $1,000 from Co-op. Her prize also includes a $6,250 donation to the Baker Creek Gymkhana Club, which will help it build a new park. In total, Co-op is providing $25,000 to the four spaces nominated by contest winners.

“Our Co-op proudly supports numerous local initiatives throughout the year, but this one is special, because it started with a call from the community,” Vanderhoof and Districts Co-op general manager Allan Bieganski said.

“Co-op Community Spaces is already making a real difference in dozens of communities across Western Canada, so we’re excited to see the program come to Baker Creek.”
