A new federal grant is the perfect chance for Minden Hills to get some help with the cost to renovate the SG Nesbitt Arena.

The Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Fund was just announced, and Director of Community Services, Mark Coleman says it’s their best chance right now for funding for the arena. It’s going to cost over 2 million dollars for the desperately needed upgrades.

Councilors recently agreed to go ahead with the application. Once it goes in within the next week, they’ll know fairly quickly if they were successful.
