Bonville Ontario — The Cornwall Township Lions Club is delighted to receive a $123,400 Ontario Trillium Foundation grant that will enable them to carry out necessary upgrades to continue serving the local community.
“This is amazing news and we can’t wait to get started” said Marland Maloney, the Club’s President. “We exist to serve the wonderful people of Cornwall and SD&G, but the facilities are showing their age – once the work is complete, we will be even more attractive and welcoming than before.”
The Grant specifies the work to be completed includes upgrades to washroom accessibility, the HVAC system and the kitchen.
“This grant will allow the Cornwall Township Lions Club to provide a modern, healthy and accessible facility for the community to use,” said MPP Jim McDonell. “The relief from the financial pressure of maintenance will help the Club focus on the service and assistance for which the community has been grateful to them for decades”.
“Our members and the local community deserve the best facility for functions and meetings commented Alan Jodoin, Membership Coordinator.
