The Trustees of the Pointe au Baril Canada Day 150 funds are very pleased to announce an allocation of funding to the PaB Cemetery Board. Funding will help meet a long awaited goal of the Cemetery Board – to provide a shelter at our cemetery site located off South Shore Road. This project will serve to better accommodate the needs of users of this beautiful site by providing shelter from the elements while at the same time enhancing the park setting and activities that take place there including Remembrance Day ceremonies. The allocation amount will be announced in the spring of 2018 following review of building specifications.
Should funds remain after the donation outlined above, the Trustees have identified the second priority as picnic tables adjacent to the new children’s playground to be built by the Township of the Archipelago on the old nursing station site.
The decisions of the Trustees have been made with community input provided at a Town Hall meeting held Feb. 3, 2018.
