Archers benefit from games grant

The Terrace Whiskey Jack Archery Club is among the list of recipients who will benefit from the surplus left from the BC Winter Games held in Terrace last year.

The club is getting $4,000 to assist with the purchase of bows, arrows and targets for youth archery and training.

In all, more than two dozen community groups received more than $63,000 from the games society’s legacy account.

Presentations were made Feb. 10.
