Community Corner: South Country Co-Op

scholarship.jpg

1 of 10 scholarships given away each year for $1000

Our first community corner features South Country Co-op, a company who believes in helping to protect, beautify and improve the spaces and communities that bring us together. They have been part of the Medicine Hat community since 1956, where they incorporated Medicine Hat Co-op limited into South Country Co-op. Whether they are supporting local business or raising awareness for causes around the community, we know they’re supporting Medicine Hat every day.

“We are committed to investing in the communities we serve. We support projects that improve the lives of the people around us. If it is local and meaningful, we want to be part of it. In addition to donating to local events we strive to buy as much local product as we possibly can. When doing any kind of construction project, we hire local. It is so important to us to support our communities and the people in them.

We are also a different kind of company. Our profits are given back to our members. Last year we paid back over $10.4 million dollars in cash! That is $10.4 million dollars that is then reinvested into our communities. It drives economy and improves quality of life. And for that, we are proud.” – Carmen, Marketing & Community Relations Manager

Join us in congratulating South Country Co-Op on being the first Community Corner feature business here at Davis GMC Buick. Do you know a business that deserves to be our next recipients? Click here to see how.

Tough Mudder 2016: Team Mudhatter

On August 7, 2016 our very own Tough Mudder team came together to complete the Tough Mudder course together. The course included 20 kilometers, 20+ obstacles, 500,000 gallons of mud, 40 tons of ice, and more, but every team member finished the course as one. We took aside participants after the course to talk about their experience and how you can prepare for future Tough Mudder courses! Continue scrolling for individual interviews, videos of the course from a GoPro perspective and more photos.

RECAP: Senator Gershaw Public School BBQ

We had such a fantastic time at Senator Gershaw Public School on Tuesday July 28th for their Provincial fundraiser BBQ Lunch. Big thank you to all the volunteers who helped make this event a huge success. It was a lot of fun not only sponsoring the event, but barbecuing and getting to know the Bow Island community better. Here are some photographs to recap the event:
