Midland, Ontario

September 26, 2014 – Yesterday Patricia Copeland from the Huronia Community Foundation presented a cheque for $1,200 to Laura Thomas from Wye Marsh.  The cheque is for a grant that will support the Gordon Black Memorial Camp Sponsorship Fund at Wye Marsh.  The G.B.M.C.S Fund is partnered with Big Brothers/Sisters, Kinark Child and Family Services and the Children’s Aid Society to give children in our community the opportunity to experience a week of summer camp at Wye Marsh.  The $1,200 grant from Huronia Community Foundation will allow six more children the opportunity to experience camp as well as better their experience by allowing the purchase of new outdoor equipment for the summer camp. 

At Wye Marsh we are thrilled to have the support of the Huronia Community Foundation and are grateful for the work they do in our community. With this grant we are able to build a stronger, healthier community.  For children, summer camp is more than just a fun experience. Camp is a place where they can make new friends, learn new skills, build confidence and explore new interests.”  Laura Thomas, Wye Marsh Marketing and Development Coordinator
