As Caledonia gets ready for the Queens County Fair, the federal government brought in a gift of $68,250 to upgrade the facilities.
The announcement was made by Rob Moore, Minister of State (Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency), and Gerald Keddy, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of National Revenue and for ACOA and Member of Parliament (South Shore–St. Margaret’s).
Improvements will be made to the pavilion, the west field gatehouse and main building. In addition, a 256 square foot wheelchair accessible service facility will be constructed. The renovations will result in increased versatility for the venue and will allow for larger events such as farmers markets, livestock and equestrian shows. These improvements will result in increased winter use, including the return of outdoor skating.
The Government of Canada is providing a contribution of $68,250 to the project through ACOA’s Innovative Communities Fund (ICF). Additionally, the Province of Nova Scotia is investing $38,000 through the Province of Nova Scotia Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage.
Announcement Made by Manager Doreen Holdright
We are pleased as well that Nova Scotia Heritage and Culture through the Heritage Properties and their Community Facilities Improvement have also provided us with an additional $38,000. plus $10.000 for the purchase of new windows for the Main Building. The scope of the work is the replacement of roofing and a much needed upgrade to the Main Building. Upon completion of the project we will have new siding on several other buildings, upgrades to the existing washroom as well as a new smaller wheelchair accessible washroom. Its a big project but should make all the difference.
