Renovations at Vanastra Recreation CentreMarch 17, 2014 12:28pm
The Facilities Manager at the Vanastra Recreation Centre expects renovations at the centre should be completed by the end of the month.
Lisa Berard says they are installing a new ceiling and duct work in the pool area, putting new ceramic flooring in the change room and the hallways, and they’ve added new washrooms in the community centre – including a barrier-free washroom. The total cost of the project is about 385-thousand dollars.
Berard adds they’ve received some funding from the Trillium Foundation and from the Municipality of Huron East.
They are hoping to raise 150-thousand dollars through things like the sale of rain barrels, a social event in May with a hypnotist, and a door to door campaign.
Details about the fund-raising events can be found on the Huron East web site.
