They've occupied the space for the past 30 years, but this year, the Drumheller Sea Cadets decided it was time to give the Navy League building a makeover.
Dave Hanik, President of the Drumheller Sea Cadets board, saw an opportunity from the Town of Drumheller this summer, and decided to go for it.
"We applied for a Town grant -- the Storefront Improvement Grant -- this year and we got approved through the Town of Drumheller. They gave us a grant of up to $3,000 if we spent $3,000 on building improvements."
Because the group operates on a strict budget, they had to get creative to come up with their share of the funds.
"We went around and we talked to a bunch of different vendors," explained Hanik. "We did some through the Co-op: we did some painting; Scott Mackay Contracting: we did some lighting outside; Imagecrafters: We did some signage outside. And [we were] just trying to make our building look more presentable."
Hanik doesn't rule out doing interior renovations in the future, but said they would need to find more money or donations to make it happen.
"We are a non-profit club. We do all our funding like any other non-profit. We do local fundraising through highway clean-up and [we did] Gran Fondo this year. We try to bring in our money that way."
Along with new signs and lights, some of the building's windows were insulated with spray foam and sealed with silicone.
The #80 Furious Drumheller Sea Cadets meet every Wednesday from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The group is free to join and cadets take part in programming, lessons and leadership opportunities.
