Glenora gym gets $20K for upgrades

The Glenora Community League’s gymnasium is getting a funding boost, with the federal government announcing a grant of almost $20,000 to help with renovations.

The money will be used for work to extend the life of the facility, including changes to the gym’s floor and scoreboard.

“This is an essential facility for our neighbourhood,” Beth Sanders, president of the community league, said in a release.

“This is our gathering place, where we convene for play and recreation, but also where we meet each other socially to build a resilient community.”

The $19,940 grant comes from a federal infrastructure fund that provides money for community buildings.
