    Flat Roof and Skylight Replacement
    Thank you for your patience as we work to improve Wallace-Emerson Community Centre. The flat roof replacement work is now completed. However, the skylight replacement work is still underway and is anticipated to be completed in August, 2015 weather permitting. Protective measures have been taken to maintain a safe environment during this work. Interior protective covering has been installed along the east wing corridor during the roof and skylight installation work. Please speak with Community Centre staff if you have any questions or concerns.
