The community is patiently waiting the completion of the NexSource Centre expected to be finished in February of 2017.

The community is patiently waiting the completion of the NexSource Centre expected to be finished in February of 2017.

In the meantime, the multiplex centre will host an event to inform the community on the progress.

“It’s a general update as to where things are going in which we can also get some community enthusiasm back into the facility,” said co-chair for the fundraising committee for the NexSource Centre, Amy Komarniski.

The building of the Centre is critical to the community because it will serve as a facility for health, fitness and recreation.

“It’s a landmark facility for Sylvan Lake and it’s by far the largest investment in infrastructure that we’ve had in a project like this to date,” Komarniski said.

The facility will have skating, aquatics, curling, running tracks and a senior’s centre – all of which are vital amenities to the Town.

Many groups involved within these activities and sports will want to understand if and how the construction of the future facility will impact the current facility.

“Understanding how the development of the facility will impact the usage this fall is no doubt a question that many community members have,” Komarniski said.

To keep children entertained during the event a bouncy castle, crafts, face painting and games will be set up. There will also be a hockey game involving firefighters and the RCMP versus children.

“It’s about getting the community involved so they can see what will be available at that facility when it’s opened,” Komarniski said.

The event will be hosted at the Multiplex Sept. 19, starting at 1 p.m. with Town councillors and Mayor Sean McIntyre also in attendance.
