Mount Forest Lawn Bowling Club gets Trillium Grant

by | Jun 10, 2024 | Local News

Perth-Wellington MPP Matthew Rae announced Saturday, the Ontario government is providing the Mount Forest Lawn Bowling Club with $140,600 in funding through the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Capital grant stream.
Rae said, “Community hubs like the Mount Forest Lawn Bowling Club are essential to our local culture and community well-being. Our provincial government, through the Ontario Trillium Foundation, is investing $140,600 to support crucial infrastructure upgrades and improve accessibility. It will allow the Mount Forest Lawn Bowling Club to continue to offer great programming for years to come.”
The funds allowed the club to improve its greens, by acquiring a top dresser used for levelling. A leaking roof was replaced, greens were made wheelchair-accessible with a cement ramp and staging area, and some aging infrastructure was replaced with a new storage shed, new ditch boards, and a safe staging area around the greens.
MFLBC President Brenda Eckhardt said, “This OTF grant allows the MFLBC to maintain delivering quality programs for the Mount Forest and surrounding area. Without this type of help from the Ontario and Canadian governments non-profit organizations could no longer serve the public.”
