PHOTO: The New Timms Community Centre is on track to be mostly complete before the grand opening Feb. 24. The new facility, adjoined to the City hall on Douglas Crescent and 204th Street, will include an indoor running and walking track, fitness room, gym, weight room, community kitchen, and multi-purpose rooms for seniors and youth programs. The parking lot at the rear of the facility is now complete. All the rooms have been drywalled, and the flooring in the gym is near completion. Contractors are focusing on millwork, painting, electrical and mechanical fixtures inside, not to mention new sidewalks, ornamental streetlights, and landscaping outside.

Cruising in with big bucks
Members of the Langley Good Times Cruise-In board felt more like Santas as they delivered cheques to a number of charities recently. The volunteer-driven organization raised $63,000 at this September’s car show, and dispersed that money to 14 Langley charities. The four charities of choice and primary recipients were Langley Community Support Groups, the Langley Hospital Auxiliary, the Valley Therapeutic Equestrian Association, and the Legacy Water Search & Recovery. Other groups that received money from Cruise-In 2015 were KPU Foundation, Spartan Foundation, PUCKs, Salvation Army, Vineyard Church, St. John Ambulance, Langley Boys & Girls Club, Douglas Park Community School Foundation, Freightliner Classics soccer team, Aldergrove Cheetahs soccer team, Aldergrove Aftershock’s soccer team, Noel Booth Elementary, Langley Rugby Club, and the Aldergrove Ninjas’ soccer team. This year’s $63,000 was 2,500 over the amount raised in 2014.
