The Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce and the World's Largest Dinosaur presented cheques to four different local groups, all from the World's Largest Dinosaur's Legacy Fund.
"The World's Largest Dinosaur Legacy Fund gives out up to $3,000 for not-for-profits in the area. We've given out over $600,000 so far and that comes from the admissions of visitors going up the dinosaur," stated Shelley Rymal, outgoing President of the Chamber board.
The Legacy Fund cheques were presented to DORVA for $2,106, the First Drumheller Boy Scouts for $400, the East Coulee School Museum for $8,750 and the Wayne Community Association for $3,000.
"I think it's really good to see people of all different areas apply for the grant. We have everything from a school museum to a race track to the scouts and building a playground for the Wayne Community Association," expressed Rymal.
This is the last cheque presentation that Shelley Rymal will be part of, which she mentioned was very bittersweet.
"I've been on the chamber board for five years now and it's great to see that there's room for someone else to step up and take over. There's going to be some aspects of the chamber that I will miss, but I'm always here for any businesses consultations they might need help with."
