Veiner Centre quietly turns 40


A quiet birthday marked the Veiner Centre turning 40 years old.  Officially opened in 1975, the centre became the hub of senior activities in the community.  That all changed with the 2013 floods and damage to the building.  In the months that followed, seniors lobbied the city for a new building, that however was voted down by council nearly 3 months ago.  According to the building committee of the Senior Citizens Advisory Council, the city will make a recommendation on the Veiner Centre sometime before Christmas.  It’s been previously reported that the Veiner Centre could be completely refurbished at a cost of between $3 million and $4 million
