Medical centre a buzz of activity

The Rock Creek Community Medical Society has been busy improving the grounds and preparing for the Canada Day celebration.

The Rock Creek Medical Centre has been a buzz of activity of late as we get closer to the seventh annual Canada Day party.

This year the Rock Creek Community Medical Society is doing an expansion project on the historical park, adding a new section of trail and installing four fitness centres for people to exercise while visiting the park. The property also has a beautiful new rail fence bordering the park along Cut Off Road thanks to the generous donation of time and effort by Greg MacDonald who installed the posts, and Mark Sabo who installed the rails along with general contractor Handsome

Stranger. The society has hired three students to work on the new trails and by Canada Day we will have new signage up and have the property looking nice and tidy.

Special thanks to Hazel Self for putting in work on the gardens and planting flower boxes. This project was made possible with the help of a grant from the Phoenix Foundation along with funds from the Speakeasy theater production in April, plus some donations toward the park from previous years.

The hope is that people will use the new facilities enough to warrant another expansion down the road.
