Calling All Parents! Community Grants

The PAC is looking for someone to spearhead applying for a Community Small Grant that would center around our great little school and neighbourhood. 

The Community Fund for Canada’s 150th is supporting Neighbourhood Small Grants this fall by funding projects that build vibrant and healthy communities, encourage participation in community activities to mark Canada’s 150th , and inspire a deeper understanding about the people, places and events that shape our communities and our country. Small grants of up to $500 are available for residents to develop projects that meet the needs of the community. Projects must take place between mid Oct 2016- mid Jan 2017.
We are looking for one or two people with ideas and some energy to develop an idea and help with planning. There are people on the PAC who can aid in the grant application which is due Sept 28. Some ideas are:
  •         Pumpkin patch
  •          Big community piƱata making and smash down party
  •         Recycle swap meet (exchange gently used winter gear, skiis, skates, cleats etc.)
  •          Chilli cook off
  •          Bocce party at the school field
  •          Christmas carolling/karaoke/food drive
  •         Spring bike event

Please contact Julie Beer: or Kimberly Richmond: to get detailed info on the grant application.
