Continuing on the theme of opportunity the Brockville & Area Community Foundation’s Grant Season is here with over $7,500 of “unrestricted” funds available to local organizations in increments between $250 and $2,500.
Brockville & Area Community Foundation supports applications from the following sectors: arts and culture, children and youth, education, the environment, health, heritage, recreation, social services and seniors. Applications should address a community need and/or otherwise enhance the quality of life in the community.
Applications will be considered from “registered charities” and non-registered charities (sponsored by a “registered charity) who are based in: the City of Brockville, Town of Prescott, Athens, Front of Yonge Township, Elizabethtown-Kitley, Augusta Township and Edwardsburg/Cardinal Township.

This year’s Culture Days takes place the weekend of September 28, 29 and 30th. Brockville Culture Days will be staging our fourth celebration of arts and culture in the community. We hope to build on our relationships developed last year with our neighbouring communities of Delta, Frankville, Lyndhurst and Mallorytown, as well as welcome more of our rural friends.
There is an exciting new addition this year, Culture Trek. Ontario Culture Days will be offering complete “cultural” itineraries for Culture Days visitors. These will include destinations, accommodations, and restaurants. Brockville and area will be part of the featured destinations.
The Brockville Museum’s 2nd Annual Museum @ Night series begins this week. Last year’s series was a great success and way more fun than you thought you could have at a Museum. This year promises more of the same.
Next time Maple Syrup, art, a mini-Culture Days preview, ghosts, a witch and what might quite possibly be the first motor vehicle accident in Leeds County.
