Out with the old, in with the new

The old Quyon Lions Hall was demolished on Oct. 19 to make way for the construction of the new community centre, set to begin later this fall. The old “Beach Barn”, as it was known, was a converted military storage building that the Quyon Lions acquired in the early 1970s.
