KPDC Receives City of Winnipeg Per Capita Grant

Posted by / in Information /

Kilcona Park Dog Club  thanks North Kildonan Councillor Jeff Browaty and East Kildonan Councillor Thomas Steen for a generous Per Capita Grant  to support the club’s 2013  BBQ fundraisers.

KPDC’s June 8th BBQ was a very successful event, generating significant revenue for park improvements. The club will continue to fundraise over the summer through the sale of memberships, corporate sponsorships, raffle tickets, branded products and donations. KPDC’s next major fundraising event is the September 7th fall BBQ.

KPDC members prioritized and approved furnishings that KPDC will purchase and donate to the City last November,  at the 2012 Annual General Meeting. KPDC will undertake the first of the off-leash area improvements – the purchase of standard and wheelchair accessible picnic tables and park benches – as its funding targets are reached.

The first KPDC-funded improvement will happen in July when an 8000-capacity cigarette butt receptacle will be installed in the parking lot next to the dog play area. Cigarette butts are toxic when ingested by dogs – it only takes two to kill a puppy. The new receptacle will not only reduce the risk of accidental poisoning but is expected to reduce the amount of litter that accumulates in the main gathering spot in the off-leash area.

The Board is also examining  a new opportunity to install recycling bins at the park through the “Recycle Everywhere” program.

Thanks again to Councillors Browaty and Steen for their generous contribution Kilcona Park Dog Club and their continued support to Kilcona’s dog community!
