The Ute Town and Country Club recently received a contribution from the NEW Cooperative Foundation totaling $3,000. The funds will be used to upgrade the heating system in the community building.
“We really appreciate NEW Cooperative for helping out with our renovation project,” said Lonnie Carlson, Ute Town and Country Club board president. “When this project is completed, we will replace six electric hanging heaters in the building with two propane furnaces. This will make the community building more efficient to operate, provide a more stable temperature and make the building more appealing to rent in the future.”
NEW Cooperative Communications Director, Gary Moritz, said the cooperative was happy to support the project. “Finding the money for necessary upgrades to community projects in small towns can be a challenge,” he said. “Supporting our communities is important to NEW and we look forward to seeing the results of this much needed upgrade to the community building.”
