Honouring family on Sponsorship Wall

Honouring family on Sponsorship Wall

Lifelong ESP residents, Fred & Janet Butler recently purchased two
spots on the Sponsorship Wall, as a legacy to both their families - 
the Butlers and the Jacyks
Janet Butler says she and her husband Fred are self professed "diehards of East St. Paul", so they were thrilled when a recent stop at the municipal office led to a chance to honour their families and their community.
The Butlers purchased two spots on the RM's Sponsorship Wall, located in the entrance way of the municipal office, to recognize the Butler and the Jacyk families.
"There were so many names on there that were familiar to us, so I thought since both of our families go back years and years in East St. Paul, this would be a nice legacy to leave", Janet said.
Donations from the Sponsorship Wall go to the Centennial Plaza, which is being built right now next to the municipal office.
Fred said they only learned of the Wall the day they stopped at the office.
"We weren't aware of the Sponsorship Wall, we knew about the Centennial and the Plaza and all that, but we didn't know about the wall", he said.
Janet said they like to give back to the community they grew up in.  Fred was born on Foxgrove and she on Henderson Highway.
"He's from the south and I'm from the north", she laughed.
The couple went to school together here and Janet taught at Birds Hill School.  Their son lives here and so does Janet's brother.
"It's family.  This is our home", she said.
If you'd like to purchase a spot on the Sponsorship Wall, contact the RM office at (204) 668-8112.
