2014 Dot Night in Salmo

Salmo and Area G residents packed the gym of the village’s youth centre on April 7 for the 2014 Columbia Basin Trust (CBT) Dot Night. At the door, each person was given five dots, with each dot being worth $32. After listening to presentations from almost 30 organizations that pitched ideas aimed to enhance the region, the 372-member crowd granted more than $60,000 to 27 projects, ranging from local animal rescue to seniors’ housing. The CBT funds are allocated on a per capita funding formula and are distributed once a year to CBT’s local government partners including the regional districts of Central Kootenay and Kootenay Boundary. - Kevin Macintyre
