The LeRoi Community Foundation (LCF) provides opportunities for community members in the Lower Columbia to leave lasting legacies in our community through endowed, named funds. In cooperation with the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, the LCF recently distributed $10,000 to four projects in the Lower Columbia. The Take a Hike Foundation received funding to support their project that will have students spending 150 hours learning about and celebrating Canada’s history in the Kootenay Columbia region.
