Deck Demolition!

To create, we must first destroy!

The SCCA is thrilled to have acquired funding to build a new front deck on the hall.

But first, we get to dismantle the old one, with YOUR help. We need volunteers to come out for the day (or two) to work together and get the old deck out.

We will meet at 9am on September 30th and October 1st, ready to be guided by our project lead in how best to safely dismantle the old deck, stairs and ramp.

Please come with tools or without. Pry bar, hammer, nail puller, power driver etc.

We will provide coffee, refreshments, and lunch for helpers.

Thank you everyone for your support, including the Cortes Community Housing Society and the Strathcona Regional District.

A big 'thank you' to Tammy Collingwood, and huge gratitude to all the volunteers.

Let's make it happen!

For questions or info please contact the hall, at 935-0015 or

Our Friday market has moved mostly indoors now, while still featuring a wide variety of vendors with such rare treats and goodies to offer such as baked goods, knife-sharpening, gems and crystals, handmade soaps and natural beauty products, jewellery, handicrafts, textiles and a wide array of delicious locally-grown fruits, vegetables and mushrooms!

Come on out and support your local vendors, this is one of the island's most-beloved weekly events!
