On Sat. April 7th from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Winlaw Hall, “Dot Day” will be happening in the Slocan Valley. Every year the Columbia Basin Trust allocates funds to various affected regions in the Columbia Basin through the Communities Initiative Program. They are distributed through the RDCK and the Area H funds recipients are determined through “Dot Day”
Community groups have submitted applications for these funds and its the community who determines where they go. This is done by area residents being given four dots which they place on the applications they wants to support. The value of the dots is determined by the number of people attending.
This year the Slocan Valley Heritage Trail Society is looking for support to purchase a new, wider four-wheel mower for our ATV, which will make mowing of the treadpath and nearby vegetation a more effective process for our volunteers. Please come show your support for the Slocan Valley Rail Trail and put a dot or two on our application. While you’re there, check out the many other worthy applications you’ll see there.
Please share this information with your friends and remember – it’s only Slocan Valley residents who can participate.
