RENOVATION UPDATE 13th July 2018
I want to let everyone know that our project is proceeding according to schedule. The contractor has demoed the interior and has excavated for the foundation of the extension. On Thursday July 12th he poured the footings & foundation. The next steps are to backfill and pour the slab of the extension.
I was very pleased to accept a wonderful donation from The Clayton Family Foundation in the amount of $100,000.00 dollars on the 10th of July toward this project. The fund raising committee has mailed out a pledge letter to the membership that should be in mail boxes shortly. Please think seriously about how you can support this much needed expansion.
If you would like more information about us and this project, contact the Centre or myself. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or either of the Centre numbers (885-8910 or 885-3513) most weekdays.
Wayne A. (Charlie) Jensen, President SSAC
The Renovations Have Begun!!!
The Renovations have begun with the front of the building being prepared for the renovations – inside and out! Here are some recent photos.
There are still many activities continuing in our air-conditioned Auditorium, Bus Trips are still being planned, and our Day Directors are on duty – Monday through Fridays from 9:30am to 1:30pm.
Use the parking lot at the back of the building. The laneway is still accessible from either Trail Avenue or Inlet Avenue. Enter through the Auditorium door. If there is an activity going on, please access the Office by using the stage and walking down the stairs to reach the temporary office.
