The Cattlemen’s association recently presented a cheque for $10,000 to support the LoveSong Affordable Housing initiative being developed by Emmanuel Baptist Church in Bloomfield.

Things have been moving forward quickly in the last few weeks and it’s expected that the keys to the former Pinecrest Memorial School will be handed over in the mid-January.

Ken How, the chairman of the LoveSong project, was thrilled to receive the cheque and support from the Cattlemen’s Association.

“This project is for the community, and so having local community groups support it in this way is terrific,” said How.

LoveSong Affordable Housing & Community Hub will provide affordable housing for seniors and a community hub that will offer a number of essential services and opportunities to people in the community.

This will be done by converting the now vacant elementary school in Bloomfield. Getting the keys to the school is the next step in the project, and the $10,000 received from the Cattlemen’s Association goes a long way to helping that take place. Any groups, or individuals, who have an interest in the project should contact Ken How at kenjanhow@yahoo.com or 613-476-0161.
