COUNCIL CUT: Lawn bowling gets support from the District

Seniors will be receiving a letter of support to help them get a $25,000  federal grant under the New Horizons for Seniors program to help revitalize the lawn bowling area in Eaglewind.

Jim Gracie of the Squamish Seniors Centre Society appeared before council and asked that council draw up a letter to endorse the project.

The endorsement, he said, would help them get a grant.

The money would go to replacing grass with artificial turf and building up a level surface, a conversion estimated to cost $60,000.

Council voted unanimously in favour of drafting the letter, on the condition that seniors figure out a way to cover the full cost of the project, as well as its maintenance and upkeep.
