Af­ter a busy sum­mer, the Drumheller Co-op Card­lock was of­fi­cially opened for mem­bers to use.

The Co-op held a grand open­ing for the fa­cil­ity on Rail­way Av­enue on Thurs­day, Au­gust 31. The project has been on the Co-op’s draw­ing board for years as the site was in need of an up­grade.

The ren­o­va­tion in­cludes new and in­creased ca­pac­ity. tanks, pumps, in­fra­struc­ture

To­day there are seven pumps for pa­trons to use. The site has had a com­plete over­haul in­clud­ing new un­der­ground tanks, new sig­nage, larger lanes and space to ma­neu­ver.

The pre­vi­ous card­lock was in­stalled in 1997. The ren­o­va­tion will bring the card lock up to mod­ern stan­dards and codes.

On hand to cel­e­brate the grand open­ing were mem­bers of the Drumheller Co-op board, as well as Joe Bowhay, a District Direc­tor for Fed­er­ated Co-op as well as Mayor Terry Ye­men.

They cel­e­brated the day with a free bar­be­cue for res­i­dents and pa­trons.

On Thurs­day, Au­gust 31, the new Co-op Card­lock was of­fi­cially opened. At the cer­e­mony are (l-r) Direc­tor Barry Fuller­ton, Gen­eral Man­ager Brent Walker, Fed­er­ated Co-op District Direc­tor Joe Bowhay, Co-op Board Pres­i­dent Eric Poettcker, Mayor Terry Ye­men, Cham­ber Pres­i­dent Brock Har­ring­ton and Direc­tor Kathy Lit­tle.
