Jamie Hughes, spokesperson for the 100 Mile House Waterpark Society, urges all South Cariboo and area residents to log on to their computers every day, go to The Aviva Community Fund website and vote for the waterpark in Centennial Park.

“We need everyone’s support to take a minute out of their day and log on to The Aviva Community Fund. We have submitted our waterpark idea for the second year and we need votes!”

Folks just need to go to www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/acf16807 (100 Mile House Waterpark Society is at the top of the list), register and enter their votes.

Then log into the site and vote on a daily basis until 9 a.m. on Oct. 13.

After Oct. 13, the top 30 vote-getters move into the next round. After three rounds, the top 90 groups will enter the semifinals, and then 30 groups move to the finals, which run from Dec. 18 and Jan. 28.

The 100 Mile House Waterpark Society is in the large project category – $100,000 to $150,000.

As of 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 1, the waterpark society had 193 votes and was in 64th place – leader was at 1,256 votes.

If the local society wins, Hughes says they will earmark the funds to purchase the lift gates for the waterpark.

“It’s for a chance at $100,000-$150,000 and it draws a lot of attention to the Waterpark. “If the entire community gets behind it, it’s so doable. Please vote and help spread the word. Thank you for your time.”
