This past year in 2016, the County of Stettler marked its tenth anniversary of supporting communities in the county by providing much-needed funds to bolster community resources and facilities.

The Recreational Special Project funding, which was established in 2006 has a maximum funding of $50,000 available per fiscal year.

“Any community groups, associations or not-for-profit societies that are located within the County of Stettler with the exception of the Stettler Agriculture Society are eligible to apply for funding provided that they have been in existence for at least two years by the Oct. 31 deadline of the current year,” said Director of Recreation Lorraine Hankins. “This funding is very important to the rural organizations as it enables them to continue to improve, enhance or upgrade their recreational facilities.”

Hankins explained, “The funding increases their viability and the organizations’ ability to be self-sustaining within their community, which they serve.”

With a total of $1,335,337 spent over the ten years, the county has served a wide range of communities and associations, including Big Valley, Botha, Buffalo Lake, Byemoor, Donalda, Endiang, Erskine, Gadsby, Linda Hall, Nevis Hall, Pilot Knob, Scenic Sands, Rochon Sands, Stettler, Sullivan Lake West, Union Hall and Westwoods.

Sullivan Lake West Ag. Society has received the most in funding so far, amounting to $165,887, followed by Big Valley Ag. Society getting $154, 724.
