Everyone is watching the beautiful new Quyon Community Centre nearing completion with equal amounts of impatience and excitement. Final touch-ups on paint and drywall were being done as of last week, including finishing the stairs to the Mezzanine level.
The kitchen equipment went out tender this summer and is supposed to arrive and be installed this week. Gas attachments for the commercial gas stoves will be installed once that equipment arrives.
Landscaping is due to begin soon, including laying sod and creating a cement wheelchair accessible ramp.
A donor for the furniture for the community centre has decided to donate the funds instead. The municipality has now ordered the necessary furniture but there will now be a six to seven week delay on delivery. Celebrations are planned to mark the opening*. Stay tuned.
