What can 100 Men each with $100 accomplish for Dryden? Let’s find out

By Michael Christianson

Tyler Peacock is a man on a mission to make Dryden better, now he is looking for 99 other men to join him.

Peacock’s goal is to get 100 men to put up $100 each to put towards a community improvement project. 

“What I’d like to focus the money around is something that is accessible to the general public,” said Peacock. “A community project whether it’s fixing up a city facility or starting up something fresh. As long as we have enough money to get the project completed I am open to ideas and suggestions on how the money is spent.”

Peacock says similar projects have been done in other communities and have been successful. He is curious to see what Dryden can come up with. So far he has gotten a good response. 

Peacock says that this is a great opportunity for men to get involved in their community.

“I think what it is, I’m kind of frustrated always hearing there’s no money to do things in the community,” said Peacock. “Having grown up in Northwestern Ontario and being entrepreneurial I think is what fueled the fire. I heard the idea from a friend of the family and decided it was something we can do here easily. I knew more than 100 men In Dryden myself so fired the invite out over Facebook and we’ll see what we can do.”
