Volunteers Thank the OTF

Volunteers are excited about the approval and implementation of an Ontario Trillium Foundation Grant enabling the purchase and installation of new computer equipment and software.   The OTF is an agency of the Government of Canada and Canada's largest granting foundation.  Over $110 million is awarded annually to some 1000 non-profit and charitable organizations across the province. 

The Grimsby Historical Society is thankful and honoured to be selected as a recipient of an Ontario Trillium Grant.

We know the results of this grant will enable us to continue to Preserve and Share Grimsby's Past for the Future.
