The Town of Wasaga Beach is pleased to announce that RE/MAX By the Bay is donating $75,000 to the town’s twin-pad arena and library fundraising campaign.
The town is happy to have RE/MAX as a part of the project. RE/MAX is a trusted real estate brokerage in Wasaga Beach and its agents are committed to the community.
Council and staff thank RE/MAX for its generous donation.
In recognition of RE/MAX’s contribution, the main floor multi-purpose room and kitchen at the new facility will carry the brokerage’s name.
RE/MAX representatives Marilyn Ruttan, Broker of Record, and Jason Ruttan, Broker, presented the donation to the town on Monday. Deputy Mayor Sylvia Bray accepted the contribution on behalf of the municipality.
“So the community aspect is why we are getting involved. It’s a great opportunity for us to be a part of something like this,” Marilyn said.
As a part of Wasaga Beach since 1982, Marilyn knows firsthand the important role that community facilities play.
“We used the hall at the [Wasaga Stars] arena so much for Kinettes and Kinsmen over the years. We’ve used that space for weddings, Christmas parties – and so these types of places serve a valuable purpose,” she said.
Jason, who grew up in Wasaga Beach, can remember playing hockey as a youngster at the Wasaga Stars Arena. He also has fond childhood memories of going to the arena to visit Santa Claus.
He knows the new space at 544 River Rd. W. will play an integral part in community life for generations to come.
“This building will cater to everyone in our community,” he said. “Having witnessed the community’s past use of the Wasaga Stars Arena, I believe the new twin-pad arena and library will be an invaluable amenity for our growing municipality.”
