Blackville Trio Pizza Donates $500 To Outdoor Basketball Court Project

Blackville Trio Pizza is the latest business showing their support for the planned outdoor basketball court to be erected in the village. The local restaurant has donated $500 towards the project.

Fundraising efforts continue for this project, including a slow pitch tournament held this summer at the Blackville Ball Park. Back in early August, Tyler Vickers of Vickers River Tubing donated $1,000 and made a challenge for other businesses and groups to show their support. Since then, the Blackville Mango Health & Wellness committee, White Rapids Logging and M.E.R. Forestry Ltd. have also donated $1,000 each to the project.

Donations towards the Rec Council’s basketball court project can be made at the Blackville village office, 12 South Bartholomew Road. The office is open on Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. Cheques can be made payable to the Blackville Recreation Council.

A challenge has been put forth to other local businesses to support this project.
