Cypress County council approved Coun. Shane Hok’s request to donate $50,000 towards the proposed Kale Porteous Memorial Splash Park in Bow Island at their June 15 meeting.
“I think it’s a worthwhile deal,” said Hok.
“I know people in the Seven Persons, west of Medicine Hat—they’d probably take their kids to it. I think it’s worthwhile cause. I know it’s not in Cypress County, but the Laidlaws are big contributors to (people) who live in Cypress County and it’s in memory of their nephew, son and grandson.”
