LeRoy School is one of this year’s recipients of the Federated Co-op Community Spaces grant!

The school, community, and Midway Co-op staff came together to celebrate with a smokie lunch on June 17. The $150,000 cheque was presented to SCC member, Alicia Richels, by Midway Co-op general manager, Nick Koroluk.

The funds will be used to upgrade the school playground with new equipment and accessibility features.

Alicia Richels and her fellow SCC members submitted the grant application earlier this year. The program distributes $2 million dollars across Canada, and LeRoy School was one of two schools in the country to receive the maximum grant amount of $150,000.

Congratulations to the school and community of LeRoy, and thanks to Federated Co-op for their support!
