Queen Charlotte getting new public washroom

  • Jul. 11, 2005 5:00 a.m.

The Skidegate Inlet Lion’s Club is building a biffy adjacent to the Queen Charlotte ballfield and the farmer’s market area for the community, says Eric Ross.
“It’s been in the works for two years,” says Mr. Ross. The club would like to relieve the nearby John’s Café from bathroom duty during ballgames and the farmer’s market.
The building will be cement with a steel door and house one toilet, a sink and a change table.
He says it will be open 24 hours unless it becomes a problem.
Mr. Ross also mentioned the Lion’s Club is finally going to be acknowledged for its fundraising efforts in getting the community hall built 25 years ago.
Due to some bureaucratic reasons, the service club was unable to receive a grant at the time money was being raised, so the Community Club was formed. In fact, says Mr. Ross, the Lion’s Club raised the lion’s share of the money for the centre – $300,000 in cash and priceless volunteer hours.
A sign will be posted on the front door and another above the senior’s room where Lion’s Club meetings are held. Mr. Ross hopes visiting clubbers will see the sign and attend meetings, as is club tradition.
