New Soccer Park Gets Major Donation

Richardson Pioneer has made a $75,000 donation to the Vegreville Minor Soccer Association

Richardson Pioneer has made a 75-thousand dollar donation to the Vegreville Minor Soccer Association.

Jim Nicol, Director of Operations for Richardson Pioneer Limited in Lavoy, says the donation was made possible by the ‘Richardson Foundation’.

Nicol says this isn’t the first donation to regional community projects made possible by the ‘Richardson Foundation’.

President of the Vegreville Minor Soccer Association, Allan Bohrson, says the funds donated by Richardson Pioneer have gone toward the development of the new soccer park in Vegreville.

Bohrson says, weather permitting, the Vegreville Minor Soccer Association is hoping games will be played on the new park this coming season.

Each year the Richardson Foundation donates over 1.5 million dollars to support a variety of community projects and organizations across Canada.
