Building an important asset in the community

ST. ANTHONY, N.L.

The St. Anthony Lions Club have been carrying out repairs at their building with the help of a $5,000 grant from the International Grenfell Association (IGA).

According to club president Cyril Simmonds they have been able to get a lot of work done.

Thus far there have been seven new toilets and faucets installed in the washrooms. The front bridge and wheelchair ramp have been stained, painted and repaired.

The Lions Club will also repair the basement ceiling after water leakage damaged the tiles.

Simmonds is grateful to the IGA for its generosity, stressing how important the club is to the community and particularly its youth. He notes that the Beavers, Cubs, Girl Guides and air cadets, among others, all use the building, making its upkeep of utmost importance.
