LAPRAIRIE CRANE CELEBRATES 25TH ANNIVERSARY WITH GOLF TOURNAMENT

LaPrairie Crane celebrated their 25th Anniversary with a company golf tournament on August 5th at the Tumbler Ridge Golf and Country Club.

The day began with a corporate brunch for around 80 people at the Community Centre. The brunch was catered by Sheila?s Place, and Roachelle LaPrairie, company comptroller said that Sheila had done a ?fantastic job? of the brunch and the salads that went out to the golf course for the company barbeque held later that evening.

80 Guests played 18 holes at the fun tournament which was a Texas Scramble, 4 ball, best ball tourny. There were prizes at every hole, hay rides for the children, and balloons.

120 attended the barbeque Sunday evening, wrapping up the day. The steaks were provided by the Butcher Block in Dawson Creek.

Thanks also to LaPrairie Crane for setting an example of how much can be accomplished by a company that supports its community.

LaPrairie is the sole sponsor of the Grizfest Battle of the Bands, and this year?s prizes for first second and third were a not inconsiderable $2000. The company also supports many of our local groups and organizations, and is responsible for many of our beautiful trees in the downtown core.
