The 2022-23 Refresh Program was a huge success! We had 31 applications from Towns; communities; villages and groups .. requesting over $50,000 for support.

Boy, we wish we could have funded them all. All the applications were important and interesting project ideas to enhance our region. Unfortunately, we could only fund a small portion of those applications. That made our job that much harder ... how how how do you pick from so many impressive applications?!

We struggled but finally made decisions and are able to fund 13 out of the 31 applications and we have put another $23,426.00 in operating dollars to this program.

To date; we have funded 181 Town; Villages and community projects for a total of $252,837.25. We could not be prouder of our region. That's alot of passionate volunteers wanting their communities to grow. Volunteers that work tiredessly to enhance their homes and connect with the community. Volunteers who come up with projects and ideas to make our region better!

This program amazes us each year by the work we see from the volunteers in our region. And this year; was no different and did not disappoint. We will be going out to the communities this year to visit and see the work being done in our region. Now that COVID has allowed us to travel, we are looking forward to getting the chance!

Watch our social media channels to see our photos and videos of the communities we visit!

Here are the winning applications; not that the others are considered losing applications ... not in our books; we just can not fund them all this year. Please reapply next year; apply more than once; more than one application per community can win.
