SIP Funding for Millet Organizations

Pipestone Flyer

On Saturday, August 23, 2014, just after the parade, the MLA Honourable Verlyn Olson, presented two cheques to the Friends of the Millet Library and to the Millet & District Agricultural Society. Honourable Olson presented these cheques on behalf of the Honourable Heather Klimchuk, Minister of Alberta Culture. The cheques were received from the Community Initiatives Program.

The Millet Ag. Society received $14,000.00 to help with the cost of an Audio/Visual System for the banquet hall in the Agriplex. The cost of the system, including installation and electrical was over $80,000.00.

The Millet Library received $7,000.00 to help with the costs of a number of repairs, maintenance and upgrades to the facility.
