St. Thomas – Today MPP Jeff Yurek, Elgin-Middlesex-London, recognizes recipients of the 2015-16 Ontario Arts Council grants.

"It is my pleasure to recognize all of the recipients from Elgin-Middlesex-London on being successful in receiving a 2015-16 grant from the Ontario Arts Council. Elgin-Middlesex-London had 7 recipients with a total of $42,600 in grant money.
