 The Millenium Fountain

The Minnow Lake Restoration Group is responsible for coordinating efforts to have the Minnow Lake Millennium Fountain installed in July 2000.  A prominent local businessperson and resident of the area, Mr. Norman C. Bradley, contributed $20,000 towards the cost of the fountain.  The Restoration group was able to obtain matching and supporting funding from the municipal, provincial and federal governments to cover the $60,000 cost for the fountain which operates from May to October.   A plaque on the fountain control building on the shores of the lake across from the Carmichael sports complex recognizes those who contributed.  Without Mr. Bradley's general donation it would not have been possible to raise the other money required.  It is an excellent example of what one person can do to benefit their community.  Our thanks to Norm Bradley for this. Mr. Bradley passed away in 2021.
