Rotarian Norm Dick announced at our meeting on October 3rd that we are now in possession of the $150,000 allocated towards purchasing improvements, i.e. rest nodes, along some of the trails in the City of Spruce Grove.  Past President Jim Rigby reported that we have received approval-in-principle from Alberta Culture - Community Spirit Program officials for this expenditure.  Past President Angus McKenzie reported today that we have applied for extension for resolving this grant expenditure along with the changes to the original proposal.  We have to submit a comprehensive budget with specific site locations by the end of 2013.  The exact number of rest nodes will depend on the sites, e.g. some sites may require retaining walls, therefore will be a higher cost.  Construction will then begin in the spring of 2014 to be completed by September.  Lastly, we will have to provide the final financial report by the end of 2014.
