Recreation and Culture Grant Program community projects approved

Grant submissions totaling almost $22,000 were received for consideration

The City of Lacombe is pleased to announce projects approved to receive funding from the 2018 Recreation and Culture Grant Program.

This is the fifth year of the grant program. The purpose of the program is to support new local programs and services that enhance the quality of life of Lacombians through recreation and/or culture.

“The City of Lacombe is working with organizations to address community needs by providing funding to run new recreation and culture programs and initiatives,” said City of Lacombe Recreation and Culture Manager Sandi Stewart. “The approved 2018 projects will benefit many in our community.”

Local young adults will be able to enjoy new activities hosted by YALA (Young Adults of Lacombe), adults of all ages can participate in the proposed Fall Conference of the Arts, and everyone, from children to seniors, can get involved in Lacombe’s Dance Theatre. Residents can also participate the new cultural programming project by LPACF (Lacombe Performing Arts Centre Foundation) or learn homesteading skills through the Lacombe and District Historical Society’s new project.

“The City of Lacombe is excited to collaborate with these organizations to provide Lacombians with opportunities to enjoy recreation and culture experiences in supportive physical and social environments,” said Stewart.

The City of Lacombe has provided $8,000 to facilitate the 2018 Recreation and Culture Grant Program.

Grant submissions totaling almost $22,000 were received for consideration.

The Lacombe and District Recreation Parks and Culture Board approved the allocation of $8,000 at their March 20th meeting.
