Description: NKDF Directors were impressed with the level of community support for this project, which already had matching funds in place from the District of Vanderhoof, the Rotary Club, and the Nechako Valley Credit Union. Another factor in the approval of this project was that the District had committed to an annual maintenance budget of $8000.
