It’s been almost one year since the echo of drums brought to life a new Community Centre in Fort St. James.

The grand-opening, held October 3, 2015 brought out a full house ready to celebrate a new venue since the old centre closed its doors in 1984.

One year after its opening, the centre continues to be a popular venue for meetings, conferences, weddings, parties and graduations.

The Community Centre also continues to attract more businesses and organizations from out of town to hold their functions in Fort St. James.

And a new sign designed and made by Aaron Leon from Public Works, continues to welcome all who enter.

The Community Centre also offers, a racquet ball/squash court, meeting rooms, a kitchen now complete with dishes, a main hall including sound panels and a theatre.

“It’s exciting because the theatre will be equipped with a projector very shortly,” said Lina Gasser, Deputy Corporate Officer from the District of Fort St. James.

“All in all, the Community Centre continues to be a great space for a number of functions and we hope to celebrate the first anniversary with a movie night.”

Stay tuned for details…
