Cobourg LBC and Cobourg Rotary Club work together to renew Club buildings
The Rotary Club of Cobourg announced today that a grant of $10,000 has been made to the Cobourg Lawn Bowling Club. The grant is to help with the construction of a new equipment garage. The club has and continues to hold fundraisers towards the cost of this project, but this grant from the Rotary Club guarantees that the project will start in the Fall of 2018 and the new facility will be ready for the start of the 2019 season.
A cheque was presented to the Cobourg Lawn Bowling Club President Carol Dewey on Friday, May 4th by Tom McLean on behalf of Rotary. In presenting the cheque, Tom made reference to the heritage aspects of the clubhouse and the need to keep to heritage standards, something this new building will do. He also made reference to the success of junior bowling in Cobourg.
In thanking Rotary for this grant, Carol emphasized the point that Tom had made about juniors and stressed what an important contribution this is for the Lawn Bowling Club since the current equipment shed is in a poor state of repair.
Vice President Bill Arthur also gave thanks and mentioned that with new equipment being purchased this year through a New Horizons for Seniors Grant the donation from Rotary would ensure that the club will have secure and weatherproof storage facilities for many years to come. Bill also invited Rotary members to visit the club at the Open House on May 19 to try lawn bowls or just to see what the club looks like and see how the grant will benefit the club. He also mentioned the program arranged for CCC seniors members.
