Limoges Citizens Committee     







Committee projects and operations

The Citizens Committee is involved in several activities and community projects.  Here are some of the most common ones:

  • organise information sessions with officials regarding municipal projects and community projects;
  • define the needs and priorities of the community;
  • organize events and recognition of volunteers;
  • administer the sale of Nevada tickets wich is used to partly fund community projects and activities;
  • organize the baked bean suppers during the summer months;

The funds obtained from the sale of Nevada tickets and other fund raising has allowed the Committee to help the organisations in our community in their activities and has also allowed the installation of facilities where there was a need. Here are a few main projects where the Committee was involved :

  • Obtained a Trillium Foundation Grant of $35,000 for the construction of a trail in the Rodolphe Latreille Park;
  • donation for the study and the paving of the access trail for the construction of a bridge between the park and Saca project;
  • installation of public benches in town;
  • donations for some of the structures at the skate park and play area;
  • purchase of plants and maintenance of the flower and shrub arrangements in the town centre;
  • Limoges Health Hub project.  This project is seen by the Government of Ontario as a model of partnership between the private sector, a group of volunteers and the community.

The following report provides an example of the funds which were distributed within the community since 2002.
