The Cloyne Pioneer Museum and Archives was a recipient of a grant from the Endowment Fund that enabled the creation of a historic tramway model for the Museum. Margaret Axford, Curator for the Pioneer Museum explains the tramway was a means of overland transporting logs by horses on rails from Mazinaw to Pringle Lake in the late 1800s. The model is now on permanent display at the Museum.
Pine Meadow Nursing Home in Northbrook applied for Community Grant funding for the purchase of two accessible tables in the resident dining room. Each table allows four residents to individually adjust table height and angle, achieving optimal comfort for residents in wheelchairs or those requiring special requirements. Both residents and staff are grateful for the new tables that alleviate congestion in the dining room.
