A local telecommunications company provides WIFI service at Lamont Park

The Lamont Sports Park Phase 2 fundraising campaign connects with local residents and businesses. A generous donation means local ballplayers will soon be able to stay connected to the park too.

Bruce Telecom contributed $50,000, giving the local telecommunications company 20-year naming rights to one of the park’s six new baseball diamonds.

Mayor Luke Charbonneau and fundraising campaign co-chairs Rob Stanley and Mike Myatt were on hand for the check presentation. “Bruce Telecom continues to demonstrate its commitment to being an excellent corporate citizen,” said Charbonneau. “Their generous donation has not only provided a significant boost to the campaign, but will also ensure that Lamont Sports Park will have WIFI services for players and spectators.”

Co-Chair Stanley added, “Bruce Telecom has rural roots and helps people connect. It is only fitting that they make such a generous donation towards the development of a rural community hub where people will connect long into the future.

“The concept, ‘Together Everyone Achieves More (TEAM)’, couldn’t be more accurate here,” said Ray Lahoud, President and CEO of Bruce Telecom. “We believe in community support and have always been active in helping out, giving back and doing our small part just because it feels right. We are delighted to be part of this project. »

Phase 2 of the park development will include two youth baseball diamonds and an accessible playground. This will be in addition to the four baseball diamonds built in Phase 1.

Saturday, June 4andthe public is invited to their first visit to the park, to celebrate the completion of phase 1 and to participate in the launch of the public fundraising campaign.
