Lumby gets 70K from Feds.

It's the little centre that could . . . . now it can do more with money to make improvements to the building itself.

Colin Mayes, Member of Parliament for Okanagan- Shuwap, announced $69,915 in federal funding for upgrades to the White Valley Community Centre under the Harper Government’s Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund (CIIF).

“I am proud to see Lumby benefit from the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund,’ said MP Mayes. “This investment will help create jobs and growth, and will support the prosperity of the community for years to come.”

With the funding announced today, the Corporation of the Village of Lumby will be able to upgrade the White Valley Community Centre’s lighting and repair its roof. The result will be an improved and safer facility that will be able to continue to benefit the residents of Lumby.

“The White Valley Community Centre is a key recreation destination in Lumby and the surrounding White Valley area, and it is our recreation facilities that are paramount to maintaining health and the high quality of living in our community” said Village of Lumby Mayor, Kevin Acton.

“Maintaining these assets can be challenging with a smaller population, so we really appreciate funding opportunities such as the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund.”
