Ontario Trillium Foundation’s 2007 Great Grant Award Winner – Environment Sector
Hamilton-Halton Watershed Stewardship Program
The Hamilton-Halton Watershed Stewardship Program was one of six remarkable Ontario not-for-profit organizations honoured for the difference they have made in their communities at the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s 25th Anniversary celebration in Hamilton, November 28, 2007. The evening was hosted by Kate Bursey, a member of the Foundation’s Grant Review Team.
“The Great Grants Awards recognize the vision, commitment and energy of Ontario’s volunteers and community organizations,” said Frank Passaro, Grant Review Team Chair for Golden Horseshoe/Hamilton region. “This is our 25th year of strengthening communities and we’ve been celebrating by holding 16 award events across the province. We look forward to meeting community members in Hamilton and the surrounding area who help make Ontario a great place to live.”
The Foundation presents the Great Grants Awards every two years. The award winners were selected by volunteers who serve on the local Grant Review Team. In the Golden Horseshoe/Hamilton region, six organizations were chosen for their outstanding achievements in the Arts and Culture, Sports and Recreation, Environment and Human and Social Services sectors.
