Mono Council okays grants for Lions’ 7 Bridges Run, Fort McMurray relief

May 12, 2016   ·   0 Comments

At its meeting Tuesday, Mono Council approved two special grants, $500 to Orangeville Lions Club, for prizes at the club’s Seven Bridges run at Island Lake, and $1,000 to the Canadian Red Cross relief fund for victims of the Fort McMurray, Alberta wildfire.

The grant to the Lions Club will be used to purchase prizes for the champions in 32 age-group categories (male and female, 5k and 10k, male and female).

In the formal application for financial assistance, club representative Sandy Brown said the intention is “to purchase running caps and place the Town of Mono logo on the side of the cap. Town of Mono will also be offered a promotional 10’ X 10’ space in the Exhibit Hall.

Town logo will be placed on signage at the Award State and two race registrations will be provided. This is our Silver Sponsor Package.”

The formal application was made after the club made an informal approach to Council only to be told to follow the normal procedure.

The first annual Seven Bridges Run will take place May 28 on the Island Lake trail system, with prizes to be presented at the OAS Event Centre, Orangeville Fairgrounds.

The $1,000 donation to the Red Cross will be matched by the federal government.
