Brockville May Court Club members at their October meeting voted $15,650.98 to support good works in the community.
This amount is in addition to annual contribution of $25,740 already budgeted.
All monies stay in the community and are raised mostly through sales at the May Court Thrift Shop, located at 75 King St. W., in historic downtown Brockville.
Funding requests are voted three times a year: October, January and April. This month Special Olympics, Pathfinders and Rangers, Meals-on-Wheels and Weekender meals for school children were major recipients. May Court also funds special needs for disabled, dental and eye requests.
Nutrition needs are a special concern. Annual funding goes to food banks, Loaves&Fishes and school nutrition programs.
The May Court Club of Brockville would like to pay tribute to our veterans for all the sacrifices they have made and continue to make. In their honour we have launched the “Pin Poppies on the Dress Campaign.”
Please join us in this tribute by donating poppies to be pinned on the dress in our window at the May Court Thrift Shop, 75 King St. W., Brockville.
We have until 10 a.m. on November 11 to cover our dress in poppies.
