City of Lacombe approves projects for 2020 Recreation & Culture Grant program

City provided $15,000 to facilitate the grant program

The City of Lacombe is pleased to announce the initiatives approved for funding through the 2020 Recreation and Culture Grant Program, now in its seventh year, to support new local programs and services that enhance quality of life in the community through recreation and/or culture.

“The City is excited to collaborate with local organizations to give residents opportunities to enjoy recreation and culture experiences in supportive physical and social environments,” said Manager of Recreation and Culture Sandi Stewart. “The approved projects will benefit many in our community. Those with Alzheimer’s or Dementia can become active both mentally and physically. Youth can build community connections while learning to prepare healthy meals, and people of all ages can get creative in a space designed to inspire.”

The City of Lacombe provided $15,000 to facilitate the grant program. Grant submissions totaling $32,918 were received for consideration, and the Lacombe and District Recreation Parks and Culture Board approved the allocation of the funds at their March 16, 2020, meeting.
