$95,000 grant gives Almonte Lawn Bowling a face lift

On April 12th, the Almonte Lawn Bowling Club (ALBC) officially learned that they are receiving a $94,800 Capital grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF).


This money is to be used to complete four projects at the lawn bowling facility, located at 157 Robert Street, Almonte.

“As hosts of the 2016 Governor General’s Lawn Bowling Tournament, this is a timely grant that will help in this event’s success. It will also benefit the Almonte Lawn Bowling Club and all of its members for many years to come,” said Jack McLaren, MPP for Carleton – Mississippi Mills.

The Club will use the money to purchase a new roller, to landscape the area around the greens, build an equipment shed, and improve the lighting of the greens for night usage. All of these projects will enhance caliber of the greens and facilities so that lawn bowling can be played safely and with ease by people of all age groups.

“Almonte Lawn Bowling Club Board of Directors and members, are pleased and honoured to receive the OTF grant. It allows us to proceed with much needed improvements to our facilities, and helping us to meet our goals for the future.” said Cecil DuBois, Director of Publicity.

The Club is committed to improving and maintaining lawn bowling greens and facilities of the highest caliber for use not only by its local membership, but also by members for regional and provincial tournament play. This year, it is proud to host the 2016 Governor General’s Lawn Bowling Tournament over the Labour Day weekend, a prestigious event where lawn bowlers from Quebec and Ontario vie for the silver trophy, in place since 1928.

ALBC is committed to ensuring that the greens are as accessible as possible so that all who are interested in social and competitive lawn bowling can play safely well into the future. They welcome observers, new members, and anyone interested in learning more about the sport at an annual Open House, to be held this year on May 21st at the Club, and anytime during the Spring and Summer lawn bowling season.

The leading grantmaking foundation in Canada, the Ontario Trillium Foundation strengthens the capacity of the voluntary sector through investments in community-based initiatives. An agency of the Government of Ontario, OTF builds healthy and vibrant communities:
