Crescent Point Energy gave back to the community today. They made three donations, totalling $185,000, to three organizations in the community. All three donations were made in the memory of Ken Cugnet, who passed away earlier this year. 

Ken's wife, Joanne Bannatyne Cugnet, was on hand with family for the presentations, as all three recipients were chosen by the family.

"Our whole family was just entirely touched that they would choose to do this, and the fact that they gave the choice of charities to our family," she said.

Dale Rinas is the field manager for southeastern Saskatchewan with Crescent Point Energy. He said the company was pleased to make the donations. "For us to be able to have these donations today in the memory of Ken is really gratifying."

The recipients, according to Cugnet, represent the past, present and future of the community. The Weyburn Legion, representing the past, received $40,000 to help with repairs to the building's roof. Nickle Lake Regional Park will be getting $120,000 to help with development of new campsites to meet the demand of those who want to enjoy the popular summer getaway. Representing the future, $25,000 will be used to establish a bursary of $2,000 for 12 years to help students graduating from Weyburn Comprehensive School who choose to pursue studies in petroleum engineering or geology.
