Sylvan Lake Curling Club’s building fund got a nice boost as a result of the Alberta Optimist Juvenile Curling championships on the weekend.

At the conclusion of a very exciting final draw between Team Steinke (from Dawson Creek) and Team Harty (from Okotoks and Nanton), the host committee received a surprise presentation.

The Steinke family, friends and supporters of Team Steinke were so pleased with their stay in Sylvan Lake that they showed their appreciation with a donation of $170 and a card with words of thanks.

The messages included,

“Thank you for making us all feel so welcome.”

“Thank you for all your hard work and hospitality, job well done. Good luck to you all on your next building.”

“Thank you for being so nice.”

“Great Job.”

“Great hospitality!”

Gail Steinke, grandmother of skip Tristan Steinke, explained they wanted to show their appreciation to the local club and had seen the sponsorship plan which was displayed on the weekend. After a quick consultation with others in their group they wished to make a donation and “Buy a Brick”.

“They were very pleased to hear that the Steinke name and Dawson Creek Curling Club would be permanently featured on the dedication wall in the new Sylvan Lake Curling Club,” said John Walsh.
