Trillium Project 2003
In October, 2003, The Algoma Sailing Club was successful in
receiving a significant grant from the
Ontario Trillium Foundation, for improvements and renovations to
the club facilities.
Since then club members have been working hard to realize the
intended upgrades. Some forty individuals have provided over
1100 man hours of volunteer labour over the past summer. The
results show! Our club is looking just great, with new docks,
well maintained moorings, crushed stone yard fill material,
breakwall stabilization, walkway and flower bed, refurbished
clubhouse upper deck and windows.
We have also added improved access to one of the main floor
washrooms for physically challenged persons. We also now have
exterior power outlets,exterior gasoline storage and new
shingles on the roof.
The interior has a repaired ceiling, new carpeting and
flooring, new washroom facilities, re-stained
wood work, painted doors, much improved lighting, new
countertop, extra chairs, and a new shower stall. In short, the
place is ‘better than new’ and with normal maintenance, will
be an attractive venue for years to come.
The executive and members of The Algoma Sailing Club wish to
express their appreciation to the
Ontario Trillium Foundation for the receipt of the grant monies
that made all this possible. Club members invite present and prospective sailors to join us
to experience good sailing and
establish great friendships.
