In the spring, $150,000 in funding as part of the Community Resiliency Fund was announced for the Community First Curling Centre.

The funding was geared toward helping with costs associated with recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The funds are being used to help offset the cost of reopening the club for the fiscal year.

The money is helping with staffing and costs associated with utilities, phone/internet, and also meeting public health requirement for COVID-19.

“The contribution from the Trillium Foundation comes at a good time for the recovery and renewal of the Community First Curling Centre," Tom McLean, president of the Soo Curlers Association said in a prepared statement. “This grant has allowed us to hire the staff we need and remain financially sustainable while recovering from the effects of intermittent closures and health restrictions.”
