It’s almost finished!

For about a year our entire community has watched the Columbia Valley Centre rise from a big excavation to an elegant architectural structure. The questions we hear most often are “When will it be finished?” and “When can I see inside?” Now, finally, we have answers!
Construction is 90% complete. Finishing touches are progressing. Landscaping has started and will be mostly complete by the fall. The library space is ready for the shelving and furnishings arriving in August.
The very first time the Centre will be used is to honour the 2017 DTSS Graduating Class. On Wednesday, June 28, graduates, their families and friends will celebrate with a dinner and dance in the brand new facility. This is the only public event scheduled for the Centre until it is completely finished.
Many Columbia Valley residents and vacation property owners have generously contributed to the campaign to fund amenities to make the Centre truly multi-purpose. All donors will be invited to a reception on Saturday, July 22 to show them the building before it’s open to the public. Donors will have the opportunity for a “behind the scenes” tour and will hear interesting stories about the project’s history and construction. Anyone who makes a donation before July 22 will be included in this exclusive event. Please go to columbiavalleycentre.ca to learn about donor opportunities.
And there will be a Grand Opening. When the building and landscaping are virtually complete in the fall, the District of Invermere will invite the public to come and celebrate the largest municipal building ever constructed in the Columbia Valley. The new Centre will be The Place Where Our Community Gathers for many years to come.
