Sail Parry Sound announced Friday morning that it has received an investment from FedNor for its latest waterfront development.  Following the formal announcement by the Honourable Tony Clement, Member of Parliament Parry Sound-Muskoka, Sail Parry Sound President Bob Griffiths described the $122,236 as critical to the club’s expansion of services to the community and visitors.    “Waterfront infrastructure is key to Parry Sound’s development.  With the three new outdoor attractions to be added to the sailing centre, more access to the water, to the trail system, and much greater public enjoyment of the waterfront will be possible,” said Griffiths. “FedNor has supported the vision of a longer season for the shoreline property we lease from the Town.  We greatly appreciate the guidance and support FedNor has provided.”
