The County of Brant received another donation for the Cainsville Community Centre on Wednesday, September 5, 2022.
“On behalf of the Campaign Team, we are so pleased to acknowledge Cainsville Screen Printing for their generous $25,000 donation,” said Mayor David Bailey. “This donation brings us closer to the $1.5 million dollar fundraising goal.”
Cainsville Screen Printing was founded in 1969.
“My grandfather, James Hamilton Bennie, started the business in 1969 and my father, Brian James Bennie, took over the business in 1991,” said Jay Bennie. “We are very happy to make this donation on behalf of my late father. My father was involved in the printing business his entire life and we have been a part of this community for over 50 years. We believe in community first, local production and supporting other local businesses.”
The Cainsville Community Centre will cost $5.1 million dollars to build and it is anticipated to be open in early 2023. The $1.5 million dollar fundraising campaign is 42% complete.
The new Cainsville Community Centre, located at 15 Ewart Avenue, will be a place where memories are made and the community comes together. It will be designed with nature and comfort in mind. Approximately 9,200 sq.ft (accommodating 350 people) the single story building will include a modern and transformable community hall, meeting room, spacious lobby and an outdoor covered patio. The Community Centre will blend with the natural environment and showcase sustainable design features such as solar energy, energy efficient fixtures and equipment and electric car charging stations.
