Important email-of-support needed for grant in support of curling rink…..

My apologies for the short notice but I just received a requirement regarding our Recreational Facility Development (RFD) grant application from the NS Dept of Health and Wellness. They are requesting community-support emails that support/justify the renovations and upgrades done to the curling club; those emails to be received by them no later than next Friday, February 23.

The Chedabucto CC is now truly a year-round facility with options for adults/children/groups/organizations to use the facility for health and wellness activities (physical or mental) throughout the entire year. We are being required to justify our renovations/expansion so that they enhance other community groups.

These emails, with the common subject line — Chedabucto Curling Club Support — go to Ms. Rae Gunn, Highland Regional Manager, Antigonish, at Rae.Gunn@novascotia.caThese much-needed support letters are to accompany our RFD grant application.(If you will, but not required, copy to me for the Club’s records.)

Fire brigades, businesses, clubs, culture or social groups, and health organizations are some of the many community groups who could use our now-fully-accessible facility for workshops, wellness events, community information sessions or training purposes. The expanded accessible lounge could be used for culture, weddings, funerals, workshops or fund-raising endeavours. Events now have another venue available as with the Guysborough Players who have already reserved May 20 for one of their musical performances.

If you want to pass / post this request for emails to others — please do.

All support will be sincerely appreciated.

Thank you.

Ray Bates, President
Chedabucto Curling Club
