Busy month at Cedar Heights Centre

Cedar Heights Community Centre members are encouraging residents to clear their calendars and make way for one of their upcoming events

Cedar Heights Community Centre members are encouraging local residents to clear their calendars and make way for one of their many upcoming events.

The month of April is going to be busy for the centre, that is kicking off  a month of activities with a spring clean-up event on April 6.

The centre is looking for any volunteers who could spare some of their time to help prepare for the upcoming open house, which is to take place the following weekend.

The more hands available, the easier the workload will be for all.

On April 8, the centre will be hosting a potluck dinner, which is set to begin at 5:30 p.m.

April 10 will see the North and South Shuswap Guys and Gals Hikers group hitting the trails.

For more information on this event, or to get on the email list, contact Gloria by phoning 250-675-0036, or email her at gloria16@telus.net.

There will also be an information table and sign-up sheets available at the open house.

On April 13, the open house will begin at 10 a.m. and will feature karate and seniors’ theatre demonstrations.

Free refreshments will be on hand and  a hotdog lunch will be served.

Participants are invited to enter draws for golf and tennis passes, karate memberships or two individual memberships.

There will also be a sod-turning ceremony to celebrate modernization and expansion to the hall.

Columbia Shuswap Regional District directors last month approved $15,335 from the Electoral Area C Community Works Funds for energy efficient upgrades in heating and windows.

The new boiler will have an energy efficiency rating of 95 per cent, an improvement of 20 per cent. And the new “low e” windows will reduce heat loss by up to 75 per cent.
