PICTOU – The Town of Pictou has decided their portion of the Community Arts and Culture Recognition Award will be going to the deCoste Centre.
At town council Monday night they passed the motion to give their amount of $1,428 to the deCoste.
Their portion comes out of the award of the $10,000, which was divided among the town, the Municipality of Pictou County and Pictou Landing First Nation.
Creative Pictou County submitted the document for the award, which outlined each municipality in Pictou County and their contribution to culture in the community. Each unit was able to keep their portion of the funds to further arts and culture in the community or reinvest them back into Creative Pictou County.
Trenton has decided to keep theirs for the Trenton Heritage Room, while Stellarton returned their portion to the arts council.
