STRATHMORE, ALBERTA. A unique partnership is bringing a new fieldhouse to life in Strathmore. The partnership between the Town of Strathmore, the Wheatland County and the Golden Hills School Division has made it possible to advance the multigenerational recreation facility in conjunction with the construction of a new Kindergarten to Grade 9 School. Each of the partners is contributing capital dollars to the facility.
The facility will provide space for soccer, lacrosse and pickle ball and will also have an elevated walking/running track.
“It is an exciting opportunity that the Town just could not pass up, said Councillor Pat Fule. The collaboration between the three partners in pooling resources is resulting in an exceptional recreation facility being constructed now.”
The school and fieldhouse will be located at the corner of George Freeman Road and Edgeview Road. Floor plan details and a joint use agreement are being finalized.
Construction will begin this fall and as details are finalized an opening date will be established.

All door-to-door sales people must be in possession of a valid Town of Strathmore Business License. The Town of Strathmore encourages consumers to follow these tips in case approached by suspicious salesmen or businesses (from the BBB website):
Ask for their information – if you are suspicious for any reason about the business, salesperson or the product(s) they are selling, ask for their contact information. Research the company online and call the head office with any questions.
Ask detailed questions - ask for identification and inquire about contract requirements as well as cancellation rights. Obtain written documentation clearly outlining all policies before signing on the dotted line.
Close the door – if you feel the salesperson is using aggressive or high-pressure sales tactics, close the door and do not grant them access into your home.
Check with BBB – after you have obtained the business’ contact information and conducted your own research, check with BBB to see if the business is accredited and what their rating is. You will also be able to access business reviews and complaints as well as other valuable information that could save you time and money.
