NORTH PERTH – Council approved an agreement with the Monkton Kinsmen Club on Oct. 19, for a donation to help cover the cost of playground equipment at Confederation Park which has to be replaced for public health and safety reasons.

The Interim Manager of Recreation, Amy Gangl, and the Facility Supervisor, Steve Wolfe, have been working with the Kinsmen on plans for the removal of the current equipment and a substantial donation towards the purchase and installation of new equipment for the playground.

The Kinsmen will provide a $20,000 donation over the next five years towards the new equipment. The estimated total cost of the project is $100,000 funded by donation and reserves.

“I’m on the Elma-Logan recreation, arena and park committee,” said Coun. Allan Rothwell. “There is a lot of excitement to hear that the Kinsmen have stepped forward in a big way to support that community… and I’m sure there will be a lot of excitement in Monkton as this happens.”

Mayor Todd Kasenberg thanked the Kinsmen club for the generous contribution to their community.
