About 15 or so years ago a new Recreation Centre was built incorporating a library, some meeting rooms, a swimming pool and a fitness centre. As this town's population has grown over the years, it has become obvious that the building wasn't large enough to supply the town's needs.
After many months of on again / off again building plans and debates on the rising cost by town council, construction of the new expansion started a couple of years ago, and the project is almost complete.
The expanded library opens today with a great celebration, but unfortunately we've had a huge ice storm all weekend and I can't even get out of my snowy icy driveway this morning to go and see it. I'll have to wait until all the ice melts!
The new fitness area is almost complete, and will be ready by July.
And our small Art Gallery will be moving to a larger space in the new building.... with the entrance just inside the front doors, so much easier for the public to access the space dedicated to art. The Gallery is currently in a building set back from the main street, and somewhat out of the public eye.... you have to want to go there!
So in anticipation of the move, the gallery work space is being organised.
