Mossbank Community Youth Builders (MCYB)
The Mossbank Community Youth Builders has grown out of the vison of a few young people (see the story below) and has recently taken another step forward. Its second location, the former CIBC building, experienced some serious water damage a few years ago. The Rosette Theatre and the youth centre were forced to an inactive state, but with the vison of people who are interested in seeing this valuable part of the Mossbank community continue, a new approach was undertaken.
With the planning and development of the Furrows and Faith Retirement Co-operative well under way the (MCYB) board and advisors approached the Mossbank Legion Branch 11 for the use of their building. After turning over the former Youth Centre (CIBC building) to the Furrows and Faith project, they entered into a long term agreement with the Town of Mossbank and the local legion members and the MCYB had a new home!
The hall continues to be available for rent, but the Rosette Theatre has also been revived. The Legion Hall - or should we say the MCYB Drop In Centre, is now alive on various nights throughout the month, either for youth looking for something to do or the showing of movies. The rates are very reasonable and the pop corn is great!
Watch Posters for the next movie presentation.
Thanks to everyone for your initiative to bring this worthwhile project back to our community!
