Three projects in Fernie are splitting $5,400 in community fund grants.
The largest grant went to the District’s Historical Society, which received $4,600 for their Fernie Connections project.
An additional $400 went to both Wildsight’s Power of Produce Program and Holy Family Church’s Family Garden project.
The Fernie Community Fund was established last July through $65,000 in donations.
Its goal is to help Elk Valley charities and is expected to build in value over time.
