community grants

The Province is helping protect the history of the Lower Sackville area and supporting a longtime service organization with grants announced today, April 22.

Fultz House Museum, which houses more than 200 years of area history, has received funding for roof repairs and other work. The Sackville N.S. Lions Club, which has served the community for more than 50 years, received funding for new heat pumps and roof repairs.

“Community facilities have a critical role in strengthening our communities and bringing people together,” said Steve Craig, MLA for Sackville-Cobequid, on behalf of Allan MacMaster, Minister of Communities, Culture, Tourism and Heritage. “These investments will provide the community with much-needed upgrades to infrastructure that is important to them.”

More community grants will be announced across the province in the coming weeks.


“This funding will allow us to put a historically accurate roof on Fultz House. A new roof is needed to protect our archives, artifacts, documents, photos and videos in our collections, which help tell the history and stories of the people and places of Beaver Bank, Kinsac, Lucasville and Sackville. By maintaining Fultz House Museum, we can keep it open so the public can visit, learn and explore our heritage.”
— Joanne Boudreau, President, Fultz House Museum

“The funding is going to make a big difference in Sackville Lions Club operations. Our building is getting old, and we need these repairs. We are installing heat pumps to cut back on oil, and we will shingle the roof. Right now, we have pots catching the water.” — John Campbell, Director, Sackville N.S. Lions Club
