55+ BC GAMES LEGACY       The 55+ Games Legacy Grant Committee recently announced the Legacy Grant Awards.   Our VTA is awarded $4500 to purchase durable wind screens with grommets and wind flaps for the Marshall Field Tennis Courts.  The City will be involved in providing some supplies and putting up the screens. We are thankful for the grant moneys as we have had wind screens on our list of needs for the past 5 years.  Budgeting for the court surface crack repairs took priority by the Regional District.

 Thanks to VTA Board members Joe Fabi, Graham Cooper, and Marsha White for their involvement in these 2 important projects.  CELEBRATE!
