The branch has re­ceived al­most $25,000 through the Com­mu­nity Ben­e­fits Fund for paint­ing the in­side and out­side of the build­ing.

Branch vice pres­i­dent Ju­lia Young said it was ex­cit­ing news for mem­bers.

“It would take the branch many years to fundraise for this much needed project,” she said.

“The grant will also in­clude the in­stal­la­tion of fans and elec­tri­cal work in the ren­o­vated kitchen.”
