To celebrate the new partnership between the Rimbey Community Centre, and Keyera, Rimbey residents attended an Open House at the Peter Lougheed Community Centre on Friday, August 22. Doors opened to showcase the Community Centre’s services, which include daycare, an art club, a curling rink and fitness centre.

Keyera, who owns and operates the Rimbey gas plant, became the official sponsor of the Rimbey Community Centre last year, and was given the naming rights to the building. The Late Honourable Peter Lougheed, former Premier of Alberta and also Keyera’s Board Chairman, was always fond of Rimbey and knew the importance of supporting the community. It seemed only fitting for Keyera to name the community centre after him.

“Our contribution to the Peter Lougheed Community Centre over the next five years will enable the facility to continue its wonderful programs and maintain the facility to run efficiently,” said David Smith, President and Chief Operating Officer of Keyera.

“We are proud to partner with the Centre that contributes so much to the Rimbey community; a community that the Keyera Rimbey gas plant has been a part of for more than 50 years,” Smith said. “Mr. Lougheed made tremendous contributions not only to our company, but to all Albertans, and following his passing, we wanted to continue and preserve his legacy.”

Joe Lougheed, son of Peter Lougheed, also attended. He spoke about his late father’s belief in supporting and investing in rural Alberta.

“Our father believed strongly in rural Alberta – and all Albertans and their potential,” said Lougheed. “He would be honoured and proud to be associated with the Rimbey Community Centre and the people of Rimbey as he was proud to be associated with Keyera for many years.”

“Our family wishes to thank the Town of Rimbey for allowing this honour to be bestowed in his name and the directors, officers and staff of Keyera who helped make it happen as a key community and corporate partner. Our father would be smiling today.”
