A $25,000 cheque presented to acting Mayor Erin Trainer by Summerland Rotary President, Mirjana Komijenovic.
The cheque was presented at the club’s annual holiday event at Summerland Waterfront Resort. It was an instalment as part of an memorandum of understanding with the municipality to help with the Giant’s Head Mountain Trail Revitalization Upgrades.
Summerland Rotary has committed $100,000 toward the project. This cheque is the the third instalment of that commitment.
Funds for the project have been raised through the annual Giants Head Grind-Christopher Walker Memorial Race held every May long weekend.
Half the funds raised at the event go toward the mountain project, and half toward colorectal cancer research. Work has already begun on the mountain.
