Phone 327-3555 ahead crime following word Monday from the federal minis- ter of agriculture's office that the locnl association had lieou granted a 30-year loan of 000 for the construction of the facility. Anrly Andrews, manager ot the exhibition pavilion complex, said tlic expansion had been planned before the fire which destroyed the Letlibridge Ice Arena, "The new building wasn't prompted by the fire." he said. "The association did enlarge its plans, bill this was mainly n the area of banquet space.' Mr. Andrews said activities on the exhibition grounds have increased considerably the pas 'our or five years, making tin additional building area neces .sary. The facility to be conslrudc will total square feet in ara, and will actually he an ex pansion of (be agricullura ex liihition space. Payment of the building is somewhat more complicated than asking for a loan and then repaying it, said Mr. Andrews. The exhibition association is made up of (be toard of direc- tors with IS representatives. These men arc elected from the general membership in the association of shareholders who have paid a SIO fee for a share and the right to vote al the annual meetings. "When the present exhibition pavilion was built in 1961, Ihe association received an annual grant from the provin- cial said Mr. An- drews. "From this grant, the asso- ciation pays for the principle nd interest on the money bor- owed lo construct the building. "This amounted to rom the granl each car." Mr. Andrews said the asso- ialion requested and received rom liie provincial government in increase lo in the an- mal grant for Ihe purpose of laying for the new facility. This annual payment of toward the loan frcrr he federal government will continue until it is paid off. The new facility will be built on the norhlwcst end o the present pavilion, facing Ihe main gate entrance. Mr. Andrews said the build- ing will be attached lo the pre- sent pavilion, hut the board doesn't know whether it will be constructed of metal or con- crete. Included in the plans for the new facility is an ice facility. Mr. Andrews said the plans call or the artifictl ice making lipcs lo be installed in (lie cc- ncnt floor of the new part at this stage of development to save money in the long run. He said Ihe board hasn't made any plans for an ice plant at this time. TJiere will he a slight in- crease in (he permanent staff al the exhibition pavilion and there is an additional kitchen and cafeteria planned for fu- ture use. No additional scaling is in eluded in the plans. Stan Tiffin, president of the association, said the multi-uso building has teen ncded Letlibridge for some time. He said Ihe present pavilion has ncen in use for Ins majority o the time available to it. He stressed that in 1971, th pavilion w-as used for 270 day and there were many instance where groups couldn't use it be- cause it was already in use.
