Village of Lumby endorses campaign

Providing stability for community resources has the full support of Lumby’s civic leaders.

Council members endorsed the Whitevalley Community Resource Centre’s fundraising project Monday.

“It’s a really good idea,” said Mayor Kevin Acton.

“The organization is always facing a shortfall.”

The goal of the campaign is to raise $800,000 over five years.

The principle will remain in an endowment fund and the interest generated each year will help cover operational expenses at the centre.

“Council’s endorsement is significant,” said Gay Jewitt, centre executive director.

“We hope that with their commitment, other community members, organizations and businesses will see the value of the  project and choose to support Whitevalley’s Legacy Fund by contributing as they can.

Acton is urging all Lumby area residents to get behind the centre’s campaign.

“I believe they will be successful,” he said.
