The West Boundary Branch of the Heritage Credit Union has made a generous donation of $2,500 to the Greenwood Community Association for their kitchen renovation project at McArthur Centre.

The renovations bring the kitchen up to the requirements set by the health inspector and the building itself up to code on electrical and plumbing.

Greenwood Community Association President Colleen Lang said that before the upgrades whenever there was a large event using the kitchen the fuses would blow or an element would go in the oven. “Something would always happen. We had a cooler go on us, and then a fridge so we decided to replace them. Then we decided to go to gas. She says they are hoping to see savings in the operating costs with the new appliances in the kitchen.

The first time the new kitchen was put into use was after the crew finished last Friday night when one of the association members cooked some hamburgers. “I think it was 11 o’clock,” said Lang. “The plumber worked until about 3 a.m. to get everything ready in time for the annual Greenwood library Arts and Crafts show on Saturday morning.

Lang said they have 16 members in the Community Association—“ all very dedicated volunteers. Thank you to our bingo players who patronize our Friday night bingo.”

“We are just hoping that the community makes a lot of use of it, because it is the taxpayer’s building and it will be used for many years to come.”

Heritage Credit Union assists the communities it serves through their Community Investment Policy.
