APRIL 11 LETTER: Join campaign for arts society

My name is Corlyn Cierman and I am hoping to develop an arts centre in the old schoolhouse beside the Midway medical clinic.

My name is Corlyn Cierman and I am hoping to develop an arts centre in the old schoolhouse beside the Midway medical clinic.

I had my first meeting with the Midway Village Council on March 4, 2013. They agreed in principal to the idea and I was given my work orders.

After an inspection by Rock Creek Contractor Dale Pownall on March 20, he said the building was sound – from the attic to the foundation – though he recommended more support for the floor.

His report on needed improvements to bring the old school up to present-day safety building codes is being prepared, including cost estimates.

He said the floor could be sanded and a new restroom added. The windows and light is very good for an art gallery purpose. In other words – everything is there!

I have placed a survey in the communities of the West Boundary. Please fill one out to provide us with some understanding of what the residents would like to see.

But do remember that this art centre will contribute greatly to the goodwill of the Village of Midway and its visitors.

Surveys can be dropped off at Rags, Relics and Rutabagas in Rock Creek, Midway Village Office or at Tomorrow’s Treasures in Greenwood.

I am planning to address Greenwood Council this month.

A video on YouTube is available – go to YouTube.ca and look for Corlyn Cierman.

This was an on-the-spot interview produced by Les Johnson from Grand Forks.

All established art groups are invited to participate as their own – staying in their known comfort zones.

So the building is good, but we need to form a society to move forward towards a government grant stage. Please join us. For more information call me at 250-445-6335.

Corlyn Cierman, Greenwood
