It was a great community day in Nakusp this past Sunday.

Close to 500 people came out to cast a vote in the Columbia Basin Trust’s Community Initiatives funding vote.

In total there were funding requests for approximately $173,600 from a total available funding of $161,500.

That meant the 471 people who came out to vote, were able to give great news to most, if not all, of the groups involved.

At the end of count, most projects had been fully funding. The exceptions were the Beaton Arms Cross, who will receive $3,034 out of the $4,850 requested and The Arrow Lakes Ridge Riders will receive $20,000 of the $30,000 requested. KBRH health Foundation did not receive the requested $500.

“It was a great day with a wonderful turnout and a wonderful social event with community viewing the project displays and meeting friends and neighbours,” said Mayor Karen Hamling.
