The legacy of the World’s Largest Di­nosaur con­tin­ues to give back to the com­mu­nity with two area groups re­ceiv­ing legacy grants.

The Drumheller and Dis­trict Cham­ber of Com­merce dis­trib­uted two grants to­tal­ing $6,000 on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 20 at its gen­eral meet­ing.

The Mid­land­vale Com­mu­nity Hall is the re­cip­i­ent of a $3,000 grant for its roofing project. The as­so­ci­a­tion was busy with the project when a fire broke out on Oc­to­ber 4. The grant award pre­ceded the fire.

The Drumheller Mi­nor Soc­cer As­so­ci­a­tion was pre­sented a grant for $3,000 for the club’s new shel­ter and benches at the soc­cer field, in ad­di­tion to a me­dia sign/cen­tre.

The World’s Largest Di­nosaur in­vests a por­tion of the funds gen­er­ated through the World’s Largest Di­nosaur at­trac­tion and gift­shop to en­hance com­mu­nity eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment ini­tia­tives in the re­gion.

To date the World’s Largest Di­nosaur Legacy Fund has con­trib­uted more than $590,000 to com­mu­nity projects.

The next ap­pli­ca­tion dead­line for projects less that $3,000 is March 1, 2017.
