The Ignite the Spirit campaign team is thrilled to announce that the campaign for the community funded portion for the Rath Eastlink Community Centre, formerly the Central Nova Scotia Civic Centre Project, has exceeded $5 million!
“The campaign has been successful because of community minded people in our Region” says Jon Stanfield, Chair of the Campaign. “Our community has showed their generosity by financially supporting this important asset in our community. It will serve as an economic driver for our Region plus the modern recreation and wellness centre will be a great place for our residents to gather, play and thrive” adds Stanfield.
The Capital campaign will be entering its final phase as the Centre nears completion. The Ignite the Spirit team encourages individuals and companies to continue to support the Centre through additional naming opportunities and the Name that Seat Campaign. The Name the Seat campaign allows individuals or businesses to have a personalized plaque in the Community Credit Union Arena or the Wilsons Aquatic Centre as a way to leave their mark on the facility.
The entire campaign team would like to thank all the donors and the community who have given so generously.

TRURO – Community Credit Union Arena.
That is the name that has been attached to the arena at the new Rath EastLink Community Centre, thanks to a $750,000 donation from the Community Credit Union.
Jon Stanfield, chairman of the facility’s fundraising committee, made the announcement Thursday evening during a ceremony at the Marigold Culture Centre.
“As chair of the Ignite the Spirit campaign, on behalf of the Municipality of Colchester and the Town of Truro, I am pleased to introduce our new and significant partner, the Community Credit Union to the new Rath EastLink Community Centre,” he said.
Cost of naming rights to new community centre revealed
TRURO – The two primary private donors to the new regional community centre contributed a combined $1.25 million for the right to have their names attached to the facility.
The contributions came from local businessman and Truro Bearcats owner Stu Rath and John Bragg, founder of EastLink Television and co-CEO of Oxford Frozen Foods Ltd., in exchange for having the building named the Rath EastLink Community Centre.
The dollar amounts had initially been withheld at the request of the donors but the Truro Daily News has decided to publish them because the bulk of the money for the approximately $50 million centre has come from the public purse.
TRURO – Stu Rath was all smiles as the civic centre’s new name was revealed on Tuesday morning.
The facility, which until yesterday was referred to as the Central Nova Scotia Civic Centre, has been officially named the Rath EastLink Community Centre. The name honours two businessmen – Truro’s Stu Rath and John Bragg of Collingwood, Cumberland County – because of their financial donations to the centre. Read More »
