Millet Non-Profits Get A Boost

The Honourable Verlyn Olson was in Millet on Monday, November 10, 2014 to give three non-profit groups a grant from the Community Facility Enhancement Program (CFEP) to help with the costs of planning, upgrading and developing a wide range of community-use facilities and places that improve and enhance the community.

The first organization was the Millet & District Minor Hockey Association. This group received $4,000.00 for improvements and upgrades to the Millet Agriplex.

The second group, the Millet Curling Club, received $12,969.00 for upgrades and replacement of the headers for the Millet Curling Rink. Since curling is showing an increase in Millet, the members present were extremely pleased to receive these funds, as the headers were completely non-functional.

The third group to receive a CFEP grant was the Lions.

“The Millet & District Lions Club is thrilled to be receiving the CFEP grant of $72,000.00 to assist in the construction of our memorial campground,” stated Brenda Jackson, chair of the campground committee. “The project has been in the works for several years and it is exciting that it is coming to fruition, and with the support of the Town of Millet, Mayor, Council & Staff, we will see the ground turn soon.”
