Community Centre Update October 12 2018

Here’s the latest buzz about the Community Centre

We’ve received so many positive comments about the Community Centre, from comment sheets at outreach events and open houses to letters of support. We appreciate your feedback.

Like people everywhere, Bowen Islanders love to gather – to learn, celebrate and deepen our social bonds. For a very long time, Islanders have envisioned a place where community can better flourish, and residents’ lives are enriched in multiple and profound ways.

A Community Centre will help us be healthier, happier and better connected. Having a centralized place to easily interact with others will have a profound impact on Island life. Young parents with small children at home, struggling with isolation, will have a kid-friendly place to connect with other families. Seniors facing increasing mobility and health challenges will have an accessible, indoor space to exercise, socialize and access services.

The Community Centre will be a place for Islanders of all ages to gather, learn, celebrate, connect, be active, create, and access services. It is a place to enrich individual lives while creating social inclusion that leads to building a stronger community.
