In March, almost 60 people (represent about 30 community groups) gathered at the United Church to have supper together and here about their foundation.  Reg Black gave a short presentation on how the foundation benefits the community, past projects and groups supported, and what is happening now.  Much excitement was generated with the announcement of the $10,000 available for Canada’s 150th as well as the $18,000 available for regular granting.
