Stanstead Water­park a go!

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

Thanks to the gen­er­ous and quick re­sponse of many Stanstead res­i­dents and busi­nesses, plans are now be­ing made to be­gin the con­struc­tion of a mod­ern water­park in Stanstead. The wa­ter­parks, which fea­ture foun­tains and wa­ter jets, have be­come more pop­u­lar with towns in the last decade be­cause they are safer than pools for young chil­dren and a life­guard, of­ten dif­fi­cult to find, is not re­quired.

Al­though the money col­lected is still just a tad short of the amount needed, enough has been col­lected to en­sure that the con­struc­tion can be­gin this sum­mer. Do­na­tions have been most grate­fully ac­cepted from: Derusha

Group ($2000); Al­fred and Denise Mueller ($6000); Stanstead Fire­fight­ers As­so­ci­a­tion ($2000); Gran Quartz ($4000); town of Og­den ($2000); and many res­i­dents who have writ­ten cheques.

“With any added money we will be able to buy more jets for the park, which will equal more fun for the kids!” said Marise Trepanier, a mem­ber of the Stanstead Recreation As­so­ci­a­tion which has been work­ing on this project for al­most seven years.

The park will be built in Beebe Me­mo­rial Park.
