A main source of funds raised for CONTACT Community Services (CONTACT), The Clothes Line, reopened after getting a fresh makeover courtesy of the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF). The Oct. 13 ceremony, attended by Mayor Rick Milne was possible due to the $7,500 grant awarded to CONTACT for the renovations.
This included the installation of new floors, walls, ceilings, a refurbished kitchen and a modernized work space. Also in attendance were Michael Beattie (Ward 2 Councillor), JJ Paul Whiteside, Fran Sainsbury and Jim Wilson (MPP Simcoe-Grey) who presented Gloria Lynn, Board Chair with a plaque on behalf of the OTF.
“The Clothes Line is grateful for the Ontario Trillium Grant, our landlord, Mirlin Sherifi Inc., H.F. Smith Home Hardware and our dedicated volunteers for pitching in and making the renovation possible!” read a statement from CONTACT.
