Bill Pierson (President) and Angie Herrington (Head Coach) of the Greater Napanee Gymnastics Club describes how the purchase of gymnastics equipment was made possible with funding from the CFFLA. The Gymnastics Club is a not-for-profit organization. Several pieces of equipment were funded including sets of parallel bars and vault boxes. The amazing athletes that use the equipment within the Club and in summer camps can train more safely and effectively with this high quality equipment.
Margaret Axford is the Curator of the Cloyne Pioneer Museum. She describes the importance of CFFL&A funding when a microburst hit the Cloyne area in 2002 toppling trees in this hamlet park that had many 200 year old White Pine trees. The towering Pines were uprooted necessitating a large clean-up and redevelopment of the park. The community came together and with Foundation funding the park was rebuilt, reforested and is again a focal point of Cloyne.
