“The Rotary Club was pleased to partner with the town of Sackville on the renovations to the booster pump facility,” said Josh Cormier, president of the Sackville Rotary. “These renovations will keep this important community asset available for generations to come.”
The existing plaque in the structure that marks the Booster Pump site, dating back to 1919, will be reinstalled once the new building is completed.
