An ar­ti­cle in the Aug. 27 print edi­tion of The Western Star con­tained an er­ror. In the ar­ti­cle ti­tled Joshua’s Jour­ney is par­ents way of con­tin­u­ing to show the big heart their son had re­ferred to the dis­or­der as Prader Will Syn­drome. That is in­cor­rect. It should have said Prader-Willi Syn­drome. The Western Star apol­o­gizes for the er­ror. The chalets that will make up part of Ap­palachian Chalets and RV on Lun­dri­gan Drive in Cor­ner Brook are start­ing to take shape.

The pro­po­nents be­hind a recre­ational ve­hi­cle park and chalet de­vel­op­ment in Cor­ner Brook are get­ting some gov­ern­ment fund­ing help.

The fed­eral and provin­cial gov­ern­ments are chuck­ing out a com­bined to­tal of nearly $614,000 to help El­toq De­vel­op­ments Inc. up­grade an ex­ist­ing RV park and build new cot­tages to ex­pand the ac­com­mo­da­tions ca­pac­ity of the Cor­ner Brook area.

Con­struc­tion of what will be known as Ap­palachian Chalets and RV is un­der way and will in­clude six new chalets in ad­di­tion to the park up­grades at the site on Lun­dri­gan Drive.

The At­lantic Canada Op­por­tu­ni­ties Agency is pro­vid­ing $365,000 in re­payable fund­ing from the fed­eral agency’s Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment Pro­gram, while the provin­cial Depart­ment of Tourism, Cul­ture, In­dus­try and In­no­va­tion is pro­vid­ing $218,476 in re­payable fund­ing through its Busi­ness In­vest­ment Pro­gram.

The provin­cial depart­ment is also chip­ping in a non-re­payable con­tri­bu­tion of $30,275 through the Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment Sup­port pro­gram for mar­ket­ing plan de­vel­op­ment. This fund­ing will as­sist in the de­vel­op­ment and im­ple­men­ta­tion of a three-year mar­ket­ing strat­egy to reach tar­get mar­kets of out-of-province guests.
