An announcement is expected Sunday afternoon detailing government funding of up to $118,770 towards the Eden Mills and District Community Centre. The cash comes from the Canada 150 Communities Infrastructure Program.
The announcement will be made at a concert, remembering late Canadian jazz legend Peter Appleyard.
The 100-year old hall, which hosts dozens of concerts, classes, community activities and weddings a year will use the funding towards their on-going energy retrofit.
The Community Club is currently working towards reducing their emissions, having already reduced them by 64% and with the funding, could insulate the building completely and reduce their emissions by another 20%.
The Event gets underway at 3:00PM. Tickets are available at www.edenmills.ca
