Ontario Trillium Foundation Capital Grant
Whitby Lawn Bowling Club celebrated the reception of a capital grant for $110,000 from Ontario Trillium Foundation at our annual Gala Day held on Wednesday, September 5th, 2018. The Ontario Trillium Foundation funding will fund upgrades to the club's playing area including replacing concrete walkway surrounding the greens and installing new backboards, which will provide a safe playing surface for all players.
In attendance were MPP Lorne Coe, Phillip Frances, Vice President of Ontario Lawn Bowling Association, and Joan Young, Volunteer of Ontario Trillium Foundation.
The construction will commence on September 24th, and will take approximately 4 to 5 weeks to complete.
Lawn Bowls is an assessible, fun and competitive game that contributes to a strengthened social network and an overall sense of well being within a community. The club has been an integral part of the Town of Whitby for 92 years, and has the unique distinction of being one of Whitby's oldest sports organizations.
