After a month of renovations, the Beaver Valley Seniors Gym re-opened for its 400 registered users on Tuesday. The $80,000 project included levelling and laying down a new floor, removal of an old kitchen to make way for a weight room, a re-vamped area for stretching, and a new water fountain. The job was funded by the village and with a $28,500 recreation grant from Columbia Basin Trust (Trust) in addition to $3,100 from Area A.
