Ontario Supports Chippewa Park Family Festival

From Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  ~~~~~~   May 22, 2021 (LSN)  Lisa MacLeod, Minister of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries announced today that The Friends of Chippewa Park will be provided with $50,000 towards the marketing of their five day, free to all, Family Festival now scheduled for July 28 to Aug 1, 2022.

The funding is being provided through the Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund and is part of a $4 million dollar announcement made by Minister McLeod on Friday.

John D. McKellar, President and Board Chair, Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund joined the Minister and noted that “"Since the pandemic has affected the cultural sector dramatically and drastically, the OCAF board has felt strongly it is an important role for the fund to help with resilience and recovery. We are so pleased to be able to support events across Ontario, large and small, urban and rural, that will help Ontarians begin to celebrate arts and culture again, and that provide much needed jobs to artists, makers, producers and those engaged in the sector."

Lorraine Lortie, President of The Friends of Chippewa Park welcomed today’s announcement. “When we began planning for the festival, we knew we would use it as an opportunity to reconnect people from across the region, into Manitoba and around Lake Superior to Chippewa Park. The Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund was a logical place for us to apply for marketing assistance and we are so pleased that they have agreed to support us. We also appreciate that they have agreed to allow us to use this funding for our postponed festival now being held next year.”

A key segment of the fund will be used to produce a multi-page tabloid that will feature the festival, the park and the community and will be distributed to over 80,000 households within a one-day drive of Thunder Bay.

Other fund raising continues to occur with the Catch the Chippewa Ace now entering its 7th week and the grand prize growing.  It can be found at www.chippewapark.ca/catchtheace.

Lake Superior State University Selected As Hub

For U.S. Coast Guard National Center Of Expertise For The Great Lakes

David Thompson 0 367 Article rating: 5.0

 ANN ARBOUR, MICHIGAN ~~ October 23, 2021 (LSNews)  Lake Superior State University has been selected as the hub for the U.S. Coast Guard National Center of Expertise (NCOE) for the Great Lakes and the home to its supervisor. The Center of Expertise will examine impacts of oil spills in freshwater environments and help develop effective responses, pursuits that LSSU specializes in, among its numerous other signature programs. This work will be critical in protecting the Great Lakes, as current oil spill response technologies are primarily designed for saltwater environments. These developments build upon earlier steps by U.S. Sen. Gary Peters of Michigan to secure $4.5 million for the initiative and pass legislation establishing the Great Lakes NCOE in 2018.
