Community groups receive vital funding

By Olivia Duffey

A large crowd gathered at Deniliquin South Public School's library on Wednesday night for the presentation of the Deniliquin Community Group's grant funding.

They were members of local community groups who had applied for assistance to support their programs, projects and equipment purchases.

Fourteen of 24 groups that applied received a share if the $43,827.85 raging from $1556 to $5000 per group.

The annual grants allow the DCG to give back to a community that values supporting locals.
