We are very pleased to announce that LEPAC will be receiving a refund of
$46,000 from the provincial government for the playground equipment
installed last year. This money is part of the $8 million funding
announcement made earlier this fall regarding playground equipment upgrades.
Of the total to be reimbursed, $14,000 came directly from playground
fundraising last year (Spring Fair, Silent Auction and Direct Donations).
We expect to receive the refund in early 2012.
For your reference, the next LEPAC General Meeting will take place on
Wednesday, January 18, 2012 at 6:30pm. At this meeting, we will develop
a blueprint as to how LEPAC will be soliciting your input and the
likely process for designating how these funds will be used to benefit
children at Lochside now and in the future.
If you have any comments or questions, please do not hesitate to contact
LEPAC at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
