DERBY (CNB) – The provincial government is investing $20,000 in improvements to the Millerton Community School playground in Derby.
“The provincial government is proud to invest in community projects that promote healthy living for families,” said Southwest Miramichi MLA Jake Stewart. “Today’s investment will increase wellness in our region.”
Stewart made the funding presentation to the Millerton Playground Committee on behalf of Economic Development Minister Paul Robichaud.
Funding provided by the Regional Development Corporation’s Family and Youth Capital Assistance Program will go toward the purchase of new playground equipment at the school.
The program gives community groups, non-profit organizations, local service districts and municipalities an opportunity to apply for funding for eligible capital costs of projects in support of youth- and family-related activities.
