September, 2019. New 2-year funding from Bruce County for TMP focus’ on building social capital in the seasonal economy.
Thanks to Bruce County strategic community initiatives fund, The Meeting Place has received 2-year funding to help facilitate the design of some new resources. The focus is specific to addressing social and economic ‘risks’ sometimes associated with the seasonal economy. The goal is to bring together the experience of seasonal workers with others representing existing community assets. From there, the idea is for small working groups to get to know each other, build trust, generate homegrown ideas and work them into feasible actions and resources. What will be the outcomes? That’ll be up to the working groups and what they come up with. This is a ‘winter’ project and some fun and financial incentive is sure to be built into the process. We have the right people living in our community to work together on this new project. For more information, TMP invites residents living in the Northern Bruce and especially seasonal workers to our FALL OPEN HOUSE on Wednesday, October 23, 7-9 pm at 20 Centennial Drive in Tobermory. Project presentation will be at 7:30 pm. Updates will be found on the website as things move along.
The FALL OPEN HOUSE on October 23, 7-9 pm is also a chance for people to tour some of the recent renovations at The Meeting Place, see what’s going on at TMP including resources, programs and services and talk with the volunteers who make things happen.
