Cawston Hall upgrades continue

Uprades continue at Cawston Hall with help from Fortis

On Tuesday, May 22 the Cawston Community Hall received new energy efficient lighting for the hall including new exit signs, replacing the older ones.

Thanks  goes to the Fortis BC lighting installation program for this effort.

This one time upgrade, valued at $3,000 for the hall (out of the possible $5,500) is entirely covered from assessment to installation by licensed electricians through Fortis BC.

Any small business that spends less than $20,000 on electricity over the previous 12 month period is likely to qualify.

This is a limited one time offer and can be found at: or phone 1-866-932-8283 to see if you qualify.

Doe Gregoire, who is fund raiser for the community hall, along with procuring the FLIP grant has also received $2,000 from Fortis BC as a donation for the renovations of the washrooms at the hall.

New radiant floor heating and wheelchair access will be installed as well as new fixtures, baby change table and insulated outer walls. This will be completed by the end of the year. A newly written brochure explains the history of the society and buildings, hall rental, equipment, Cawston Cemetery, membership information and charitable donations. The brochure is available at the hall or Similkameen Country for anyone interested.


Please contact Cory Vanheck at 499-2562 or email us at  to schedule hall rentals or equipment.
