The grant is for contacted services within a Town-owned building. The Town is paying for services held in a Town-provided venue.
It really shouldn't be that difficult to understand.

Mais non mon ami, il est tres difficile a comprendre.
At the time of the purchase of services, the town already had a Department of Recreation and Leisure Services. Many cultural programs were duplicated.
Except for piano recitals, the Culture Centre Board had nothing new to offer.
Many programs were provided by the private sector including musical evenings by one of the churches.
The first board purchase was a grand piano costing thousands with funds provided by the town.
Funds were raised to pay for it after the purchase became an issue.
Except for staff and the piano, the building was empty.
Details are hazy but I believe the sponsor of the first performance was a member of the board and is currently Chairperson.
I am smiling. As I write, I watch the twisted intrigue ending this week's episode of "The Good Wife "
