The Community Improvement Project Fund
In 2005, the Cranberry Lake
Boat Club established a
Community Improvement Project Fund. This fund is used to provide
monetary support for community projects that need financial backing.
Prospective projects are brought to the Boat Club Board
for its review and approval. It will be the responsibility of the
Board to determine if the project is appropriate and consistent with
the purpose of the Boat Club. If the project is deemed
Board will then determine the amount of support that will be provided.
