BRCF presents grant to Senior Centre Society
The Battle River Community Foundation has made a grant to the Camrose and District Senior Centre Society.
The Camrose and District Senior Centre Society provides recreational activities for seniors 50 years of age and over at the Mirror Lake Centre. These range from friendly card games and scrabble to competitive floor games, pool, table tennis, pickle ball and dance.
The grant is made possible by the Vernon Schnyder Fund. Mr. Schnyder, who farmed in the Gladstone area, has been active in the Senior Centre since he retired to Camrose in 1987. He created this fund in hopes that his contribution would help build a strong future for the Centre so that it can continue to serve both seniors and the community.
The Battle River Community Foundation exists to support projects in East Central Alberta which benefit local communities and have a positive impact on the future. Grants from the Battle River Community Foundation are made possible through the generosity of individual donors and organizations that have created endowment funds. The principal of these endowment funds is kept intact and the income is made available annually to support local projects.
Since its founding in 1985, the Battle River Community Foundation has granted over $1,400,000 to various projects and initiatives.
