Lake Country Community Centre receives grant for upgrades

The federal government is providing $21,000 so the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs

A popular Lake Country facility is getting a financial boost.

The federal government is providing $21,000 so the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs can upgrade the Lake Country Community Centre.

“I appreciate the excellent services that the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club provides to our community,” said Ron Cannan, Kelowna-Lake Country MP.

The upgrades include levelling the exterior walkway and drainage, as well as increasing learning opportunities for residents through the installation of a new teaching kitchen.

“The safety improvements and new teaching kitchen will greatly enhance our facility and allow both youth and members of the community to learn important life skills they can carry with them into the future,” said Craig Monley, Lake Country chief executive officer.
