$175,000 Government Grant

MLA George Groenveld and Ted Morton presented a Government Grant in the Amount of $175,000 to the 187 Foothills Air Cadets on the morning of 20 March 2009. These funds have allowed the commencement to completion of the building. The next few weeks shall see an increase in activity around the building. Several Contractors are set to start in their area of expertise from Electrical to In-floor heating.
This money will bring the building alot closer to completion but a shortfall is still foreseen.
A review of floor plans has identified a couple areas of concern that would present a few problems as our Squadron grows, so these points are being addressed in the building stage.
