Council thanks Badenoch community centre volunteers

by Mike Robinson

BADENOCH - Even though Puslinch Township no longer owns the Badenoch community centre, Puslinch councillors agree a letter of commendation should be sent to board members.

On Nov. 1, council received a report from township administration recommending the township repeal its lease agreement with the Badenoch Community Centre Board and repeal the bylaw appointing members of the centre’s committee.
In addition, council authorized the mayor and clerk to execute a quitclaim and release in favour of the County of Wellington.
Earlier this summer Puslinch councillors discovered the community centre is owned by Wellington County.
Councillor Matthew Bulmer said the centre’s committee is another example of a group of local citizens working for the betterment of their community.
The group maintained the building and worked to improve it with money from their own pockets and efforts, Bulmer stated.
“They certainly deserve to be recognized,” he said.
“They have done a lot of work ... and I would like to acknowledge their contributions. I wish them well with the county.”
Councillor Susan Fielding agreed.
“Its been a tumultuous relationship at times, but there has been a lot of good come out of it for the fabric of the community,” said Fielding, adding a nice thank-you note would be appropriate.
Councillor John Sepulis agreed with the idea, as did councillor Ken Roth.
“I’m not sure a letter is enough,” added Roth. He asked whether staff might be able to come up with an idea.
Lever too supported acknowledgement of the committee’s work over the years.
“They’ve done an exceptional job operating the facility,” said Lever.
