At the February 7th Council Meeting, the Municipality of South Dundas welcomed Jim McDonell, MPP for Stormont, Dundas and South Glengarry to officially announce a $315,000 Ontario 150 Community Capital Grant through the Ontario Trillium Foundation to upgrade the ice pad surface at the Morrisburg Arena.
“I am pleased to see the Ontario Trillium Foundation recognize the importance and support the Municipality’s commitment to providing residents with the best opportunity to live an active and healthy lifestyle. This investment will ensure our community continues to provide affordable and high-quality sport programs to all,” said MPP McDonell.
Upgrading the ice pad surface will extend the life of the arena and allow residents of all ages to continue living an active and healthy lifestyle. The new ice pad surface will also allow staff to continue running free and low cost programming.
“The impact of this Ontario Trillium Foundation grant cannot be overstated,” said Ben Macpherson, Director of Recreation and Facilities. “It will allow for much needed renovations to be completed.”
