Briefs

The 70 Mile Community Hall is about to get a facelift.

The Thompson-Nicola Regional District is expected to award a contract for the $380,000 contract in mid-September. The project will include a new roof and foundation, cement crawl space, a sump pump and a new floor, washroom and kitchen, said Ken Huber, chair of the 70 Mile Community Club.

“It’ll be really good,” he said. “It’ll be nice to walk in there and not smell the mildew.”

The hall, built in the 1970s, is a focal point of the community, used for weddings, family gatherings, community dinners and craft fairs.

The board, which held its Annual General Meeting last week, has also appointed Fred Hinchecliffe as its new vice-president, while directors include Celine Desaulniers, Bruce Nicolson, Andrew Christopher, Ken Stainthrope and Amber Summerhayes.
