The MRCA is hoping to begin building the expansion of the Gilles boardwalk this summer even if they haven’t hit their fundraising goal says General Manager Kees Pols.

Currently they have raised  just over $50,000 which is over half of their goal of $90,000. The $5000 cheque from The Timmins-Porcupine Rotary club earlier this week was a significant contribution putting them over the halfway mark.

Anyone can buy a board for $50 and have their name put on it.
