The arboreal outlook of the Summer Village of Grandview just got a lot brighter after a $2,500 donation from FortisAlberta May 27.

Mayor Don Davidson told The Pipestone Flyer the summer village applied for a grant offered by FortisAlberta and was successful. The grant is for $2,500 and will be used for tree-planting in the summer village’s park.

“We’re excited about the support Fortis is giving our watershed stewardship efforts,” said Mayor Davidson by phone May 26.

The grant, from FortisAlberta’s Community Investment program, is based on the guiding principle that the organization’s success depends on the well-being of the communities in which FortisAlberta operates and where FortisAlberta employees live and work. “Through philanthropic donations and the personal involvement of our employees, our vision is to empower communities by contributing to organizations that offer programs and services aligned with FortisAlberta’s business focuses: safety, education, the environment and wellness,” stated Rick Burden, FortisAlberta’s stakeholder relations manager.

Davidson said the Summer Village of Grandview has always supported a lot of tree-planting in Hamblin Park on the shores of Pigeon Lake and another area the summer village is restoring near a creek.

The funds granted will be used to replace damaged trees noted Davidson.
