Mayor Paul Kelly and fellow Gravenhurst Town Councillors delivered some great news to eight local community groups yesterday who were approved for Community Funding through the Terence Haight Community Grant Program.

Mayor Paul Kelly  said he continues to be impressed by the amount of dedicated volunteers and community groups that serve our citizens.

Last month, Town Council approved the recommendations from the Committee to award community grants to : Gravenhurst Archives, Severn Bridge Agricultural Society, Parry Sound/Muskoka Community Network, Muskoka Women’s Advocacy Group, Empty Bowls Gravenhurst, Gravenhurst Against Poverty and the Little Sprouts Eco-Club.

This year the committee received 18 submissions with a combined grant request in excess of $107,000 for a range of community programming.

The Terence Haight Financial Review Committee is a committee of Council with the annual mandate to consider applications and recommend the awarding of up to $20,000 in community grants.
