“A group of Bill Lishman’s friends wanted to commemorate his contribution to our community with a memorial and needed the means to raise funds to bring this project to life. When Bill Eull and Doug Moffat presented this idea to our Board of Directors we realized that Bill Lishman added much to the vibrancy of our arts community, that the memorial would give Port Perry a wonderful piece of public art, and that we could help. With this group of friends and myself forming a Committee of Scugog Arts, the Council is able to provide our expertise in marketing, events and financial management. Scugog Arts is a registered charity and we provide this new project with benefits such as charitable receipts, our bank account, a mailing address, a process for getting private grants and access to our CanadaHelps.org platform.”

“Scugog Arts adds to cultural tourism and enriches the lives of our community by creating The Bill Lishman Memorial Project Committee and bringing fabulous public art to Port Perry while commemorating one of our most creative citizens in Bill Lishman.”
