Mayor Gil Reeves was on hand to congratulate the Committee Members and thank OTF for its funding contribution to the improvements. “This investment by the Ontario Trillium Foundation to repair the roof, install insulation, strapping and metal cladding to the exterior of the building; and to retrofit the building with new LED lighting is great news for many in our community,” said Mayor Reeves.

Located at the intersection of Highway 17 and Chiblow Lake Road, the Iron Bridge Recreation Centre is utilized by a variety of community organizations and individuals to host celebrations, fundraisers and other recreational or cultural activities. “The impact of this Ontario Trillium Foundation grant cannot be underestimated,” said Jane Armstrong, a member of the Recreation Committee. “This grant has allowed needed renovations to be undertaken.”

The Municipality of Huron Shores is committed to preserving this facility, improving its energy efficiency, and ensuring that it remains accessible for community events for many years to come.
