A teen dance at Lower Centennial Hall will help kick off the town’s upcoming youth centre.

A teen dance at Lower Centennial Hall will help kick off the town’s upcoming youth centre.

The Saturday, July 2, dance will take place from 8 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., with kids aged 13 to 18  invited to come out.

DJ Spydy, also known as Taylor MacKay, will be playing the songs.

Admission is $2, and there will be a concession and a light show.

As for the youth centre – a joint partnership between Cowichan Lake Community Services and the Town of Lake Cowichan – a location is still being nailed down.

“We’re still working on it,” Community Services counsellor Becca Shears said, adding that she hopes to know something in time to tell the kids at the teen dance.

For now, Shears said it’s likely the Municipal Hall’s old fire bays will be sought as a temporary location until a more permanent one can be found.

The fire bay furthest from the Cowichan River is hoped for, as the others have too serious a potential seismic problem.
