News from Nora Reid, President of Central Station Education Initiative
Posted May 4th, 2018 on Niagara At Large
Welland, Ontario – The Central Station Education Initiative (CSEI) has been selected to receive a Spring 2018 Launch Pad Coaching Grant from the National Trust for Canada.
This is the second grant CSEI has received in the last month. The organization was also selected by Niagara Regional Council in April to receive a Niagara Investment in Culture grant.
CSEI is an incorporated not-for-profit whose mandate is to preserve and to educate about the material and cultural history of the fire, police, paramedic and other emergency services in the Niagara Region.
Welland City Council last October voted to lease the former Central Fire Station (Central Fire Hall), a heritage designated building constructed in 1920, to the Central Station Initiative so that they could raise funds to restore the Station and transform it into a financially self sustaining multi-use facility with an a portion open permanently to the public displaying how firefighters lived and worked in bygone eras.
Members of the Central Station Education Initiative Board will be at the City of Welland Market this Saturday, May 5th to showcase their plans to make this landmark building once more a vibrant part of downtown Welland.
