Sherbrooke Opportunities Society is getting some help from the federal government.
Central Nova MP Sean Fraser was in Sherbrooke on Saturday to announce that the Atlantic Canada Opportunities agency will provide$66,745 to Sherbrooke Opportunities Society or S.H.O.P.S. S.H.O.P.S. will match that contribution, which will complete the last phase of the Memorial Place project and construction is in the works.
Memorial Place is the new wing attached to St. Mary’s Education Centre and Academy that houses a room for Kids First and another that will provide a homebase/workshop for the developmentally challenged adults of the community and surrounding area. It will also serve as a memorial to past educators and veterans.
