Lorne Rye, Senior Business Development Representative, of Wawanesa Insurance was on hand to present a donation of $20,000 towards the modernization project at the Lodge.

“The Vermilion region is a huge supporter of Wawanesa, probably one of the largest in Alberta.” Said Rye. He explained that the renovations at the Lodge meet the specific criteria of Wawanesa’s capital projects and “it’s a small way for our company to give back” to our valued clients, some of which have been with Wawanesa for 50+ years.

Craig Brown, Volunteer Vice Chair of the VDHF Capital Campaign, explained to Rye how Wawanesa’s contribution towards the fitness room will benefit the overall health of the residents at the Lodge. “Many of the residents use the fitness equipment daily and having a separate room in which to exercise is vital and safe. Presently they have a treadmill and recumbent bike in the hallway and have people walking by as they exercise.”

Barry Clampitt and Jason Clampitt of Vermilion Insurance were instrumental in working with the Capital Campaign and Wawanesa to secure the donation. The VDHF Capital Campaign thanks Barry, Jason and Wawanesa for your support of our area seniors.
