Seven Summits work party

More volunteers are needed for work upon the Seven Summits Centre for Learning this weekend.

By Aerin Guy

Rossland’s community spirit was out in full force last weekend as volunteers descended upon the Seven Summits Centre for Learning to prune, prime, paint, and lend their considerable talents to the renovation of the site.

The progress has been amazing and the centre staff are grateful for the outstanding contributions of time and skills from students, families, and community members who helped.

There’s still much work to be done and the community is invited to join again this weekend to help prepare the space for learners in September.

Volunteers can meet at 2393 Columbia Ave at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Lunch will be provided.

Seven Summits learners will start their studies at the Red Mountain Conference Centre on Sept. 3. All students will take part in a team-building camping excursion to Kokanee Creek on Sept. 9 – 11.

The Seven Summits Centre for Learning will officially open on Sept. 16.
