The LeRoi Community Foundation announced its Spring 2013 Grant Recipients on April 30, 2013 at an event held at the VISAC Gallery in Trail, BC.  The evening provided an opportunity for the Board of Directors, major donors, and representatives from community organizations to meet and share information. A highlight of the evening was the presentation of grants. The LeRoi Community Foundation handed out $10,000. We thank our generous donors who have made it possible for the Foundation to support the very worthwhile and diverse endeavors of charitable organizations in the Greater Trail area.

Special thanks to Chef Geoff Tellier, and his students, Caron and Patrick of Selkirk College Food Services, Trail campus; to Ye Flower Shoppe;  and to The Warfield Liquor Store for their assistance in making the evening a success.
