Donate Now $150,000 Donation PLUS Donation Matching - It's Time to Donate!

Posted on April 04, 2017

Lifelong local resident, retired businessman and philanthropist George Galbraith is celebrating Canada's 150th birthday with a two pronged donation towards trail development.  “In honour of my parents and grandparents, I am making an initial $150,000 donation", said George.  

“I will also match donations, up to $150,000, made from today until June 30th.  I want to see the trail developed so that it is safe and enduring, and finished soon so I can enjoy biking the trail with my grandchildren.”
