Clothing store and movie theatre to be discussed at September 15 meeting

By Matthew Peterson – Ladysmith Chronicle

Ladysmith residents will be given the chance to hear from local youths pitching two different business plans for Ladysmith.

The youth have been hard at work over the summer drawing up and researching proposals for either a youth clothing/skate/board/surf/bike shop or a movie theatre.

They are now getting ready to present their ideas to Ladysmith before choosing one idea to submit for a chance at a grant to make it happen.

Sam Corrington, with the Ladysmith Resources Centre, said this will be a chance for the youth to involve the whole community in their work.

Both teams will present their ideas and research, which will be followed by a question-and-answer period.

“The youth will be meeting the next day … to decide which of the two projects to move forward with for the proposal.”

Corrington said she is hoping participants may also want to invest in one of these projects even if they don’t get the grant, or to help launch the other idea.

“Our hope is that the community will see how much effort and time these amazing youth have put into this effort.”

The presentation will happen on Thursday, Sept. 15 at 6 p.m. at the Ladysmith Secondary School multi-purpose room.
