A total of $175,000 has been contributed to help with the future Muskoka Lumber Community Centre (MLCC).
“It’s no surprise to me that when we live in the heart of Muskoka, folks are more than willing to help support what is a great transitional and generational project for our town,” said Bracebridge Mayor Rick Maloney during an announcement Wednesday in front of the MLCC.
The majority were for the Coulson Family Bracebridge Library.

Maloney pointed out that sponsorship opportunities for businesses and individuals are still available through EngageBracebridge.ca.
Maloney said the mild winter was great for Aquicon Construction because it allowed them to get the structural steel in place. He added work is underway on the internal aspect of the MLCC.
“We’re really pleased where the timeline is right now,” he said.
According to Maloney, the MLCC is still on target to open in Aug. 2024.
