Co-operators now official named partner for the Rimbey Agrim Centre

Rimbey Agricultural Society President: “Ag Society is thrilled with the new partnership.”

The Rimbey Agriculture Society is pleased to announce they have ratified an agreement with The Co-operators as the official named partner for the Agrim Centre.

The Co-operators and locally operated Dynamic Insurance Group owned by Darrell Peters stepped forward to ensure continued support and success for the future of the facility with the respected brand.

“We have supported most organizations in Rimbey in one capacity or another since moving here in 2011. In 2014, we began a relationship with the Rimbey Agrim Centre as it was a natural fit with Co-operators being founded by farmers 75 years ago and Rimbey being a very strong agricultural community. The Agrim is one of the most used facilities in Rimbey, so it was a no brainer to evolve our relationship to include naming rights of the building for the next 10 years.” Darrell Peters also noted “We are very proud to have our name on the Agrim Centre, our local economy has already benefited from the opening of the Agrim in 2014. Food establishments, fuel stations, hotels, grocery stores, etc all see an increase in revenue when events occur at The Cooperators Agrim Centre. This will only increase as more and more people use the facility.”

Rimbey Agricultural Society President John Trenson remarked that “the Ag Society is thrilled with the new partnership. The Co-operators brings professionalism, excellence and core values to our organization and community. We are extremely grateful that The Co-operators has made a long term commitment which proves they believe in the future and the success of this facility.”

The Rimbey Agriculture Society has a rich history in creating partnerships to help grow the facilities and enhance the community. Moving forward the facility will be named The Co- operators Agrim Centre. Once signage on the building is complete we look forward to a grand re-opening with The Co-operators, municipal partners and community in the new year.
