Club Projects: Demetreous Lane Renovations

The Demetreous Lane Community Centre is two units in a townhouse complex that serves a low income area in North Dartmouth and is in dire need of a facelift. The Rotary Club of Dartmouth, under the leadership of our past Community Service Director Dave Garnier, has met the challenge head on.

The renovations are being made possible through a partnership between our club and The Metropolitan Regional Housing Authority, Councillor Gloria McCluskey, and Rotary District 7820. The budget committed for this project includes $7,000 from the Rotary Club of Dartmouth ($6,500 for renovations & $500 for books), $1,500 from Rotary District 7820 in the form of a District Grant, $3,500 from the Housing Authority and $2,500 from Councillor McCluskey.

The renovations are well underway and to date have included the installation of new windows, installing and leveling a new floor, upgrading the ductwork, new bookshelves, updating the kitchens with new appliances (fridges & stoves) and a new set of kitchen cupboards in one unit. On March 1st both units got a fresh coat of paint.

Stay tuned as more renovations are in the works.
