After the first community centre burned down on Easter Sunday in 1987, a new hall was built on land donated by Helen Negroponte with funds donated from the Anavets, grants from Go-BC, money from the seniors group for kitchen equipment and many hours of volunteer labour. The new hall opened on May 22, 1994.
