In partnership with the Onaping Falls CAN Committee, we received funding through the Local Food Infrastructure Fund from the Government of Canada to install a Community Garden beside the Onaping Splash Pad and Pavilion. The garden setup will be completed for planting in May 2021.
We received funding through the New Horizons for Seniors Grant to upgrade the entrance of the Onaping Community Centre in 2021. The upgrade will include a new accessible front walkway and ramp to the main doors as well as an AODA automatic door.
The Splash Pad was completed in late June 2018. It took four years, a lot of fundraising and grant-writing but we did it!
Also, in July 2018 we installed park benches and picnic tables around the Splash Pad in memory of local residents.
In 2019, we received an HCI Capital Grant for Ward 3 to construct a Pavilion beside the Onaping Splash Pad.
In 2019, the St. Louis Blues won the Stanley Cup. Our very own Dave Taylor, originally from Levack and played on the Huskies, was and still is the Vice President of Hockey Operations for the St. Louis Blues since 2012.
Dave brought the cup home to the I.J. Coady Memorial Arena in Levack on July 11th, 2019. Residents young and old were in awe of seeing the Stanley Cup in person and to chat with the NHL star.
To thank and celebrate Dave, the OFRC created and installed a commemorative sign at the I.J. Coady Memorial Arena.
