ABOUT OUR RECIPIENT
Few can compare to the generosity and passion for giving back to our community than Barry Mjolsness. His family business, Spray Lake Sawmills is a pillar in our community employing many, volunteering often as well as making innumerable financial contributions to countless initiatives throughout the Bow Valley region.
For 80 years they have operated with integrity and given back to the place they call home, even earning the Premier’s Award of Distinction from Premier Ralph Klein for their efforts. Without a doubt our community is more dynamic, more connected and better supported because of Spray Lake Sawmills enduring commitment to see it thrive.
BECOME AN EVENT PARTNER
The gala will be a joyful event, focused on celebrating this multi-generational legacy, as well as raising money to support two philanthropic initiatives in our region. The first is the ROARR foundation, Providing Equine Assisted Therapy to our elderly and youth at risk. The second is the Rocky Mountain Rotary Foundation, a passion-led group of young professionals supporting local needs in the Cochrane and Bow Valley region.
We would be honoured to have you partner with us in celebrating this Albertan family and business who have demonstrated over many decades, what it means to leave a place better than they found it. In keeping with the legacy they have created, the proceeds of this event will funnel back into our beautiful community making a positive impact for years to come.
