Singer Terry Boyle entertained the crowds that arrived at the Saltair Community Centre Saturday

‘I Love Saltair’ draws crowd of 200 to community centre

“I’m overwhelmed by the number of people who showed up,” said Sean Jonas of the Saltair Community Centre board.

About 200 people packed the Saltair Community Centre Saturday, Feb. 6, for a celebration and chance to tour the building, which is located in the former Mount Brenton Elementary School at 3850 South Oyster School Rd.

“I’m overwhelmed by the number of people who showed up,” said Sean Jonas of the Saltair Community Centre board.

The event featured live music, with Terry Boyle, food and cake, games and activities for everyone.

Jonas said one of the main purposes of the I Love Saltair community party was to give people a chance to see the community centre, and come up with ideas for using its gym and classroom spaces.

“We’ve got this facility, let’s use it,” he said.

The Saltair Community Centre Society is also looking for new board members. More information will be available for a meeting to be held three weeks to a month from now, Jonas said.

Young people especially are being sought to sit on the SCC board. “We want a mix of the older and the younger,” he said.

Asked what the priorities will be in 2016, Jonas said:

• New ideas.

• Keeping the SCC vital.

• Making the community attractive to families.
