Under the auspices of Quadra Literacy, a small group is undertaking a project to document the history of the community halls on Quadra. The Valdes Island Social Club formed in 1917 and a community hall was built the following year. In 1940, the club became the Quadra Island Recreation Association. The original hall was dismantled in 1973. Around that time, energy for building a new community hall began. We have some archival photos but are looking for more showing the planning and construction of the building, the landscaping and the addition. Do you have a story you would like to share of those times? Were you a member of the Quadra Island Recreation Association in the 60’s? Perhaps you participated in some of the building, landscaping and fundraising phases for the current hall. From the collected material, we will create a digital presentation that will be available for the community and shared online.
If you have a memory or photos of those early days, we invite you to call one of us: Robin Beaton 285-3185, Gretchen Peters 285-3529, Marcy Wolter 285-3849 or Jean Aston 285-3542
