$10 000 Grant Awarded



JA Cuddy School Parent Advisory Council is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a $10,000 sponsorship from Manitoba Liquors and Lotteries Small Capital Sponsorship program.  This program is designed to provide support to non-profit organizations in the Province for small capital projects that focus on benefiting the community at large through initiatives like the green space project that encourage a healthy lifestyle through physical activity, nutrition and wellness, especially for youth.  This money will be used to complete Phase 1 of the Sanford Green Space - the sports field improvements, which will take place the Summer/Fall of 2016.

Phase 1- Sports Fields Improvements covers the cost for earthworks and drainage on the majority of the school property and the cost to construct safe, rounded soccer pitches and baseball diamonds, as well as a two meter wide continuous walking path surrounding the entire green space, which will eventually be connected to the existing walking pathways in the community. 

JA Cuddy PAC is very excited to be starting this work of Phase 1 and wants to thanks all the community members and sponsors that donated to the project.
