Renovations at Vanastra Recreation Centre
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.
