Perth-Andover Thankful for Their new Stairs
New funding, under the re-imagined 'Inclusive Recreation Activity Fund' was dispersed for the first time in 2015.
Last year, we introduced a new section of funding under the Inclusive Recreation Activity Fund. Municipalities or organizations that provide recreation services can apply for funding through this grant, up to $2500. The funding can be used to help cover inclusive programming or facility related expenses. The Village of Perth-Andover were the first recipients of this fund and purchased new stairs for their outdoor pool. The stairs were installed this summer, and are getting plenty of use! Justine Waldeck, Assistant CAO for the Village says; “Participants are extremely appreciative of the new stairs. Our disabled persons and seniors whom were having extreme difficulties both entering and exiting the pool, now are able to utilize the pool with full enjoyment and a lot less struggle. A big THANK YOU from our community!”
