LDB Foundation Grant Announcements for Spring 2022

On May 18, 2022, the Lac du Bonnet & District Charitable Foundation held its Annual Public Meeting and Celebration of Giving.  A large part of the evening was dedicated to the celebration of projects funded by the Foundation in 2021 and the announcement of grant recipients for Spring 2022.

The LDB Foundation is pleased to announce that $3,000 was granted to the Town of Lac du Bonnet on behalf of the Fire and Water Festival for the Spring Funding Session.  These funds will go towards the purchase of new speakers and a sound mixer.  Marie Heibert, president of the Fire and Water Festival, was on hand to accept the award from LDB Foundation President Gary Rollins and Treasurer Dick Campbell.

Lac du Bonnet Regional Library representatives Jennifer Hudson Stewart (Head Librarian) and Karen Dave were also present to receive a $1,500 grant to help purchase a tent canopy and fencing for the Library. These items will be used to provide a safe outdoor environment for the children’s outdoor reading program.
