Ladysmith Resources Centre marks 30 years

LRCA hosting open house on Nov. 17

The Ladysmith Resources Centre has been offering services in the community for 30 years and is inviting people to stop by to find out more or to share their memories of the centre.

The Ladysmith Resources Centre Association is hosting an open house at its Second Avenue offices next Thursday, Nov. 17.

“The public will have an opportunity to explore the LRCA’s historical scrapbooks documenting the organization’s challenges, good work and leadership in the community,” said Vicky Stickwood-Hislop, board chairperson, in a press release. “We’re also hoping to see current and former LRCA clients, board members, staff and volunteers.”

The facility was officially opened with Mayor Rollie Rose in a special ribbon-cutting ceremony in 1992 and since then, the centre has been a part of the community, offering services to seniors, youths, families with young children, and helping those who are hungry, homeless, or require special supportive programs.

The 30th anniversary celebration will run from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at 630 Second Ave.

“Join us for cake, coffee, tea and a walk down memory lane,” said Karen Laing, the association’s executive director, in the release. “Meet our team, see what we do. Everyone is welcome.”
