We were pleased to showcase the new Dow Gazebo, which was designed and built by Wayne Froese of Top Peg Timber Frame Construction, Benalto. The recycled plastic components were supplied by Dow and transformed into decking and railings by Jonathan Beekman of Full Circle Plastics of Lethbridge. The wooden components were milled by Wayne from the aged trees that Charlie Ellis planted along Prentiss road in 1956. The memory of Charlie and Winnie will live on for many years to come in this gazebo as well as in the other structures that Wayne has installed around the site.
We were grateful that Srikanta Hazra, the new Dow Site Leader, was on hand to do the ribbon cutting. Our thanks to Dow for their support of this gazebo through their community grant program.
