Raising the Roof

CCS is thrilled to have been awarded a grant in the amount of $15,000 by The Winnipeg Foundation to re-shingle the roof of our home.

“This will add years of ‘life’ to our facility”, said Brian Faurschou, P. Eng., CCS’S volunteer Treasurer. “Our next step is to seek funding for re-painting and for other modest repairs; then, we will be in great shape.”

The gift, known as a Community Grant, is the second to be received by CCS. In 2011, you will recall that we received $10,000 towards the purchase of 2 ‘SMART’ boards for our teaching purposes. Members of the Central Council recently met the President/CEO of The Winnipeg Foundation, Richard Frost, in March of this year during their annual face-to-face meeting in Winnipeg.
