The Centre is closed with no plans (yet) to re-open, and no plans (yet) to let go of property, and no plans (yet) for anything in between. There is still much to ascertain, and all of you to hear from. We are working on best ways to vision for the future and invite our passionate community into the process. It is still too soon to know what the future of Naramata Centre's physical site will hold.
What we do know is that the Society has very few sources of revenue, yet ongoing expenses remain - particularly onerous are those related to the upkeep and security of the physical Centre site. Our Board's Volunteers and Site Management task groups are working out ways to best utilize volunteer efforts to bring costs down. The entire Board team is working to dramatically reduce our cash outlay in every area possible.
Monetary donations to help cover the Centre's ongoing expenses are appreciated. During this time of purposeful dormancy, your donation will not be used to restart operations, or as seed money for future operations. Instead, it will be strictly used to help ensure the Centre at Naramata remains cared for as our visioning process unfolds.
