FedNor events funding for Gravenhurst won’t come close to Huntsville handout from province

GRAVENHURST – It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas again – and we don’t mean more snow.

The time of giving continues.

On the heels of provincial money for Bracebridge and Huntsville for physio – and none for Gravenhurst – the Gateway to Muskoka will be getting federal funds Friday.

MP “Uncle” Tony Clement is to announce cash for summer events.

And the Chamber of Commerce is excited they will “do quite well.”

The money comes on the heels of huge grants for Huntsville from the provincial Liberals.

Their summer Events funding awarded an astounding $600,000 to the G8 town.

The largest of that was $300,000 for a musical festival – in September of all times.

Other smaller grant recipients say according to grant proposals, the musical festival must be investing close to $1 million to receive the kind of funding they did.

But sources say don’t expect FedNor funding for Gravenhurst to come close to the Huntsville handout they got from the province

The FedNor announcement is at 3 p.m. at the Centennial Centre in Gravenhurst.
