The l’Association des Francophones des Kootenays Ouest will be staying put.

The l’Association des Francophones des Kootenays Ouest will be staying put.

In mid-December the Anglican Church Hall where the association is located officially changed hands. New owner Theresa Hart has invited the association to stay in the building and also become the new animal clinic’s neighbour.

As soon as the renovations for the clinic are completed, the association’s office and library spaces will also undergo some renovations, which will make them even more bright and cheerful.

The association office is located at 723 Ward Street and is open Monday to Friday between 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 and 4:30 p.m. If it’s for borrowing books, using our public computer or simply to relax and socialize, they are here for you. Call them at 250-352-3516 or visit the website at to find out about their events and activities.
