Gander Heritage Memorial Park Receives Federal Funding


We have just been advised from the Office of the Honourable Peter Penashue that our two applications for funding through Veterans Affairs Canada have been approved. We will receive $25,000 under the Cenotaph/Monument Restoration Program and $50,000 funding under the Community War Memorial Program. We are now $75,000 closer towards our projected costs of $450,000. Just look at the 78%age points of Target we have now reached!

These extensive applications would not have been so thoroughly completed without the expertise and competence of Terry Parsons and Reg Hedges of Design Management Group. Thank you again DMG for your continued contribution to this project!

We are still receiving individual donations daily and are so very thankful to everyone for their generosity. We will update the Donations page within the next few days, so watch for it!

Just imagine if all those who attended school in Gander over the years, donated $10, $15 or even $20 each, how much closer we will be to reaching our goal by mid-2013.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Everyone!
Chairman Wilson Hoffe / December 12, 2012
