The Crowsnest Opportunity Development Corporation held a Grand Opening and Investor Gala celebration on Tuesday, February 19th, at the former Work and Play building in Blairmore. It was an opportunity to meet board members and see the renovations to the site. Attendees learned about the investment, the role citizens can play in the economic development of the Crowsnest Pass and provide some input on future projects.
