The lighting of the Community Christmas Tree will take place on Thursday December 13th at 6:30 in front of the St. Peter’s Bay Complex. Carols and hot chocolate to follow inside. All welcome.
In light of an exciting funding opportunity available through Rural and Regional Development, the St. Peter’s Area Development Corporation has formed a sub-committee which is working toward the goal of purchasing and installing new playground equipment in the community of St. Peter’s. While there is playground equipment available to village residents at the St. Peter’s Complex and campground, this equipment is not visible to families passing through our beautiful community. The Playground Committee feels that installing equipment directly in the community, visible to anyone travelling in the area, would be a great benefit to our community.
What we are proposing is to create a playground directly within the community, in the under-utilized area by the gazebo. By doing so, we feel that families with young children will be much more likely to stop and spend time in our lovely community, thus benefiting local businesses. We also feel that young families living in the area will benefit from having another outdoor activity available, and that families considering moving to the area will see this as an attractive feature.
The funding opportunity we will be applying for requires a 50% contribution from the community. The anticipated cost of this project is estimated at $20,000, which means our goal is to raise $10,000. As such, we are asking for your support.
If you choose to contribute to this project, your generosity will be recognized on a sign located within the playground area. Donations of $500 or more will be recognized as Title Sponsors, $250-$500 as Gold Sponsors, and $100-$249 as Silver Sponsors. We will recognize all donors under $100 in a list below. A map of the community will also be included on the sign, highlighting the locations of local businesses to help encourage visitors to stop in and explore all we have to offer.
If you would like to help us improve our community through the creation of this playground, please share and support the fundraising events we will be organizing, or contact a playground committee member to make a donation.
Donations can be made out to the St. Peter’s Area Development Corporation. Please indicate in the memo area of the cheque “playground equipment” so our treasurer can more easily track fundraising for this project. Donations can be made through facebook [click here] by mail to: SPADC-Playground Committee, PO Box 143, St. Peter’s Bay, PE C0A 2A0
Thank you for your support!

For the past seven years David Lewis has been trying to obtain significant signage for our community and Greenwich National Park extension. This search has brought him to many organizations and association with many individuals. Every funding agency both government and private have been approached. The cost of this venture seemed to provide a real obstacle to funding agencies. However with a total cost nearly $ 30,000.00 the effort continued. We were successful in having Parks Canada agreeing to provide one half the funding. A grant of $ 5,000.00 was negotiated from a provincial government fund. This left a balance of $10,000.00 where we had no other choice but to seek private funding. We now want to sincerely thank Bohemian Findings, G & P Construction, P.E.I. Mussel King, Milligan Fisheries, The Rural Municipality of St. Peter’s Bay, and two very generous American visitors who came forward with the funding. The signs are now in place and are at the maximum size allowed by our Tourist Association at present. In the future we maybe able to negotiate to have these signs larger but for the present they provide very improved signage for our community.
Once again thanks to those generous associations and individuals who made them possible.
