Rebuild of Community Hall Now Called “Paterson Community Center”
June 14, 2018
BOWDEN, AB – The Bowden Community Hall has been a gathering place for the townspeople and rural residents of Bowden since it was moved piece by piece from the military base in 1948. Like many small community centers, the seven-decade old hall has since gone into disrepair and requires replacement to remain open. Paterson GlobalFoods (PGF) recognizes the important role that the hall plays in the Bowden region and is proud to support the community with a $100,000 donation.
The new 10,750 sq. ft. facility is located on 3.2 acres of land at the north end of Bowden with a total estimated cost of $1.5 million. The modern hall, complete with a commercial kitchen, will allow for milestone events such as graduations, weddings and funerals, trade shows, farmers markets, seasonal events, and minor hockey programs.
