There were seven big cheques and a collection of equally large smiles as Sunshine Coast Community Forest (SCCF) Legacy Fund grant presentations for 2022 were made in Sechelt on Aug. 25. On hand to distribute $144,000 to community groups were representatives of the SCCF Board, Legacy Fund committee and staff, as well as representatives of the District of Sechelt, the sole shareholder of SCCF. …Several community buildings will be upgraded with this year’s grants. This includes a $30,000 award for an upgrade to the Egmont Community Hall’s 20-year-old kitchen.  …The Gibsons Landing Heritage Society was awarded $21,000 for a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system replacement for the historic Heritage Playhouse. …A 2022 contribution of $27,000 brought the Legacy Fund support for the Roberts Creek Hall restoration over the past years to a total of $174,000.
