The newly-renovated Langenburg and District Activity Centre got the grand re-opening treatment Thursday.
Government Relations Minister Warren Kaeding said the Ministry of Social Services provided $220,000 to upgrade the building.
“Improve the accessibility to the washrooms, made changes with the office structure, and with the activity centres, just modernize it, brought it up to spec.”
Among the upgrades also includes expanded kitchen and program areas and landscaping improvements.
Kaeding said it will greatly benefit those who use the facility.
“It’s quality of life for the residents that utilize this on a daily basis, so what that means for them is to have that renewed sense of pride in a fresh, new building that they get to participate in on a daily basis,” Kaeding said. “I think it means an awful lot for our staff, they’re getting to work with a fully-renovated building.”
The activity centre supports 12 people with intellectual disabilities through their residential and day programs, and has served the community since 1980.
