A much needed facelift is coming to the McCauley building, which is used by the Boys and Girls Clubs and Big Brothers and Big Sisters.
The building on 95th Street and 109th Avenue is getting $550,000 from the rotary club, and provincial and federal governments to do some renovations.
We needed a new heating system, as you can imagine with the building being 51 years old." says Executive Director Liz O'Neill. "We need new windows, and we needed new ventilation, and then as well, we need to upgrade the flooring, and move a number of walls."
O'Neill says with the renovations they're also expanding their services to the community, to provide more space for local events.
"We'll also be able to now make that building available to people in our community. So, for example, if Moms and Dads want to have a birthday party for their child, or the want to be able to have a family gathering, they'll be able to use the building."
Fixing the building became the group's first priority when the Boys and Girls Clubs and Big Brothers and Big Sisters amalgamated in 2011. (kdr)
