Alberta Historic Resources Foundation

With the help of grant writer Ross Duncan ( City of Chestermere) in January of 2014, CHF was able to apply for matching money to assist with the restoration of the firetruck engine and mechanicals. Carlo LaForge, from AHRF, was pleased that we were taking the time to restore the Ford motor to its original state rather than putting in a different or more easily restored motor. The monies received through AHRF are from Alberta Lotteries.  The total received from AHRF of the matching grant of $9420, was $6371.95  in 2015 and $3048.05  in January 2017 for a total of $9419.90.
