The Malakwa Community Centre Association is celebrating the arrival of spring with a dinner/concert to help raise funds for the local community hall.

On Saturday, April 26, the association will be hosting the fundraising event – dinner with live music – at the Malakwa Community Learning Centre (the former elementary school).

Tickets will soon be available at the Malakwa Market. Funds raised from the event will go towards a community hall fund.

Association president Gord Hynek says winter hasn’t been kind to the existing community hall. Association volunteers were out in January shovelling snow off the roof, during snowfall that’s had local residents making comparisons to heavy snowfalls of winters past.

“We were very concerned that it might collapse,” said Hynek. “The ceiling was bending so much were compelled to remove a long row of fluorescent lights.”

The association has been unable to insure the building for liability coverage since an engineering report by their insurer revealed structural-integrity issues with the facility.
