Freson Bros. Title Sponsor for 2017 Canadian Ringette Championships
We are extremely excited to announce our title sponsorship of the 2017 Canadian Ringette Championships. The games will be held in Leduc, Alberta March 27 – April 1, 2017. The tournament is designed to determine the Canadian champions in the U16, U19 and National Ringette League categories as well as provide athletes with the opportunity to compete at an elite level, encouraging sportsmanship and interprovincial goodwill all while increasing the visibility of the sport across the country.
At Freson Bros. our passion for food and providing a great shopping experience is only outweighed by our commitment to families and the communities in which we operate. Our brand values of family, community and heritage are the guiding principles for how we run our stores and our business.
Freson Bros. truly understands the impact and benefit sports can play in the lives of our youth today. Sport is an international language; events like the 2017 Ringette National Championships assist in shaping the sport elites of tomorrow. Longitudinal studies have shown children and youth who play sports achiever higher results academically, have increased self confidence and self esteem, stronger peer relationships and a greater involvement with family and community. For us at Freson Bros. to support an outlet that produces so many positive benefits for youth today, well it’s an easy decision to make!
Everyday we see our parking lots turn into practice grounds for kids, grocery aisles turn into last minute championship goal opportunities – and we wouldn’t have it any other way!
We wish all competing athletes the best of luck and look forward to the games in 2017.

High Prairie – During High Prairie’s annual rodeo we had a fundraising BBQ in our parking lot. The store matched donations of $1,754.00 to the High Prairie & District Sports Complex giving them a total of $3,508.00! It was a great day for a BBQ with over 1,500 burgers served. We also helped to sell $20,500.00 in tickets for the local lakeside cottage raffle.
FRESON IGA COMMITS $100,000 TO COMMUNITY FACILITY
O.R. SHEDDY– DRUMHELLER MAIL
Freson IGA has had a continual presence in Drumheller supporting the community, and have jumped on in a big way to support the building of the Badlands Community Facility.
Freson IGA has pledged $100,000 over five years to the project.
“Drumheller and District has been an important part of the success of our company, and we want to help the Badlands Community Facility with their funding and donating $100,000,” said Doug Lovsin, former resident and Vice President Operations of Freson IGA. “We believe in investing in the communities we serve and we make this commitment on behalf of our Drumheller management and staff.”
The Freson IGA company started in 1955 and now has 15 locations in Alberta. It employs over 1,000 throughout its various operations. Since 1990, the IGA store in Drumheller has been operated by the Freson company.
Mr. Lovsin told the Mail, the commitment also carries a personal connection as he and his wife Deanna were married in Drumheller and their five children were born here. The Lovsins left the valley in the summer of 2009.
