Reception for Here & There

On Wednesday, January 11, 2012 we were delighted to host a community celebration honouring the completion of a 2 year process that resulted in the community public art project, Here & There. Pictured here is John Thomas (L) and Walter Schultz (R) who were both instrumental in getting the original and current centres constructed. In the case of John Thomas, it was his father, Stan Thomas- then president of the Sunset Memorial Centre who led a campaign to raise the necessary funding to build the original centre. Walter Schultz, community member and past president of the current Sunset Community Centre engaged politicians on a municipal, provincial and federal level to gain the necessary funding to get this centre built. Both of these stories were captured by digital storyteller Lisa Nielsen that now reside on a flatscreen embedded into the heritage wall you see behind Mr. Thomas and Mr. Schultz
