Dr. Marlene Bryenton - Joseph A. Ghiz Park Fund

This Designated Fund was created by Dr. Marlene Bryenton, past IODE member, in order to carry on the work initiated by the IODE Centennial Millennium Park. The park was renamed the Joseph A. Ghiz Memorial Park and the income provides for the costs of flowers and general maintenance of the park.

The Joseph A. Ghiz Memorial Park was in need of some tender loving care. The park had grown weeds around the inscribed clay, and the corporate/endowment granite bricks. Many Islanders had contributed to the cost of building the park in honour of former Premier, Joseph A Ghiz, so it was time to ensure it was restored to its original beauty.

The upgrades that were completed with the financial support provided by an endowment fund that was established at the Community Foundation of PEI. Several years ago, a $25,000 endowment fund was set up at the Foundation and each year this fund generates revenue that can be utilized for ongoing maintenance in perpetuity. This will ensure there are always resources available for future upgrades and maintenance.
