Town youth group has been put on hold for the time being

The long talked-about youth group/centre in Lake Cowichan has been put on hold for the time being.

The long talked-about youth group/centre in Lake Cowichan has been put on hold for the time being.

“We’re kind of re-grouping,” Cowichan Lake Community Services counsellor Becca Shears said.

With other things going on in town Friday nights, that time may not be a prudent option.

“It may be during the week,” Shears said.

A number of locations are still being looked into, as using the Community Services building may not be the best option. There hasn’t been a great deal of success bringing kids into the building in the past. A partnership between Cowichan Lake Community Services and the Town of Lake Cowichan, the youth centre hasn’t fallen onto the cutting room floor at the council chambers.

During mayor and council’s Tuesday, October 4 meeting, the youth group was discussed.

“I think the key thing is to keep talking,” councillor Bob Day said.

The town’s chief administrative officer Joseph Fernandez noted that the school district is in support of the group using the old Stanley Gordon School building in some capacity.
