Albany Community Centre gets complete overhaul
A complete overhaul of the Albany Community Centre will better serve local residents and community activities.
The Albany Community Centre has received $30,700 from the Department of Fisheries and Community’s Rural Growth Initiative. The total cost of the project is $61,400 which includes a new roof, siding, windows, pump, toilets, tables, chairs, and a new oil tank and heat pump. The former Lions Club is now owned by the community and has served as the local community hall for 55 years.
“I congratulate the volunteer board of directors who have spearheaded a number of projects in recent years, including renovations to the centre, a parking place for Confederation Trail users and a community playground,” said Jamie Fox, Minister of Fisheries and Communities. “This new project helps support a wide range of events and activities that benefit local residents and help contribute to the local economy.”
In addition to supporting local events and activities, the local 4-H group has used the centre for the past 37 years. It is open every Friday night and offers a pub-style menu.
The Rural Growth Initiative supports the revitalization of rural communities through strategic infrastructure investments that strengthen rural social and economic development.
