Grant aids in long-term reno plan

The Beaver Valley Manor Society received a grant this year from the Columbia Basin Trust.

The Beaver Valley Manor Society received a grant this year from the Columbia Basin Trust. This grant enabled the manor board to continue its long-term plan to update suites in the building. As in the past few years the grant allowed the board to redo six bathrooms with entirely new flooring, vanities, faucets, toilets and bathtub surrounds.

Tenants whose suites were worked on were very pleased with the final results. Not only does the area look much better, it is now more efficient and easier to maintain.

Since the Manor will soon be 40 years old, there is a need to ensure that replacements of certain areas are provided before maintenance costs rise too high. This low income facility for seniors is indeed fortunate to receive financial assistance to provide such needs. This grant is truly beneficial in so many ways.

The Manor Board and tenants appreciate what the Columbia Basin Trust has provided and our thanks go out to those who made this possible.

Bob Bastian

Chairman, B.V. Manor Society
