2018/19 Grants

Many thanks to our grant providers in 2018/19 that kept our doors open for the curlers and community that use our public facility.

 

With the Powell River Community Forest Grant we were able to replace our aging ammonia plant with a new safer Freon refrigeration plant and restart the season on time in October 2018.

 

That grant was used as matching funds towards a Capital Gaming Grant from the Province of BC. The capital projects included in this grant allowed us to

  • replace our gravel parking lot with a paved one,  
  • add an electric stairlift for accessible access to our upstairs lounge
  • add a genderless, accessible washroom to the main floor
  • upgrade emergency exit doors to current fire and safety standards
  • install remote monitoring system for Freon leaks

 

In March 2019, the federal government approved a grant through the New Horizons for Seniors program. With those funds we were able to further update the facility to provide better access for seniors by

  • adding a genderless, accessible washroom to our upper lounge area
  • purchasing a commercial dishwasher for the kitchen
  • adding a handicapped accessible entrance door to the paved parking lot
  • replace old lobby carpet with vinyl plank flooring

 

In the summer of 2019 we were approved funding from ViaSports - Program Development Fund to create a new Stick curling league. This provided funds to purchase curling delivery sticks and protective headgear for anyone in the community who wanted to try out curling, but cannot use the traditional delivery method. Our Saturday Sticks N Stones league has received a lot of early interest from both new and experienced curlers.

 

In the fall of 2019 we received a Community Gaming Grant that provided money to offset our operating costs for our school programs, youth and junior curling programs, adult learn-to-curl and Special Olympics curling.

 

Many thanks to all of these grant providers who have made a big difference to our volunteer based club. Thank you from all of us.
