Funds awarded to Grandview Bench Hall

A grant of almost $2,500 will help the association purchase and install new lighting at Grandview Bench Community Hall.

Colin Mayes, member of Parliament for Okanagan-Shuswap, announced federal funding for the Grandview Bench Recreation Association under the Harper government’s Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund (CIIF).

Funding of almost $2,500 will help the association purchase and install new lighting at Grandview Bench Community Hall. These new components will increase the energy efficiency of the hall by lowering electricity consumption.

“Our government is committed to creating jobs, growth and long-term prosperity in our communities,” said Mayes. “By improving facilities such as this, we are helping to boost economic activity and maintain a high quality of life for Canadians.”

“The board at the hall is most appreciative of this funding, without which we would have been unable to consider this project,” stated Moya Petznick, president of the Grandview Bench Recreation Association.

“Our hall is a community focal point for many happy events, and our new lighting will be a vast improvement over the current outdated fluorescent fixtures.”

CIIF supports repairs and improvements to existing community infrastructure accessible to the public on a cost-shared basis,
