The Muenster Curling Club Renovation Project is a big project for our club and will have a huge impact for our community.
The Muenster Curling Club is a thriving facility in our community, and for the surrounding area. We have 150 registered members as well as about 100 casual players. The club is probably the most used building in our community. It sees use by the school, businesses for training, meetings, birthday parties, anniversaries, baseball and hockey teams, and of course lots of curling.
Our building is 40 years old and we are currently undertaking a $50,000 renovation. This is a much needed project due to moisture problems in the ceiling and walls. The full detail of this job is tearing out ceilings, walls, insulation, spray foaming, replacing ceilings and walls, paint, flooring, plumbing, electrical and cabinetry. Due to the nature of this work, most of it will be done by tradesmen, not volunteers. As an example of what this building means to the community, 70 hours of demolition and cleaning was done by volunteers from the local midget baseball team.
Despite the success of our club and heavy use by groups throughout the area, the scale of this project will drain the reserves our club has built. It is a job that needs to be done, or we face the possibility of not being able to use the building in the near future.
Completion of this community project will be the end of October. Once finished we will again be enjoying the use of the building by young and old throughout the community for years to come.
