FALL RIVER: The community’s gathering place is getting a bit of a fresh new look.

With COVID19 restrictions forcing spots like the LWF Hall to remain closed as events are cancelled as a result of the provincial health order as part of the State of Emergency, volunteers at the community hall got to work tearing down it’s old patio/entrance and creating a new patio.

The volunteer board gave the go ahead for the project, which will eventually see them be able to have a licensed patio for those nice hot summer nights, especially when the Lions Wing nights are back up and running.

The work is expected to be completed in the next few weeks, with the hope for it to be licensed soon.

Besides the outdoor patio, the Hall took advantage of being closed to do large scale renovations inside as well. They were approved for a provincial Environmental Grant to purchase 24 brand new technology LED ceiling lights.

Last week, they finished installing them throughout replacing the old inefficient florescent lights.
