Alberta’s Minister of Culture and Tourism, the Honourable Maureen Kubinec, handed out $76,000 to two organizations Wednesday morning.

The minister attended the weekly Rotary Club of Morinville breakfast where she presented the club with a cheque for $25,000. That presentation was followed by a $51,000 presentation to the Morinville Fish and Game Association.

The $25,000 Rotary cheque was granted under the Community Initiatives Program (CIP). The funds will be used for enhancements to the Rotary Park, located east of 100 Street on 99 Avenue.

The $51,000 cheque was granted to the Morinville Fish and Game Association under the Community Facility Enhancement Program (CFEP), a program administered by Alberta Culture for project-based initiatives.

The money will go towards the construction of a new building on the south side of the Morinville fish and Game Association pond, located at 107 Street.
