But it feels strange. We spent years fighting to keep Kelvin Community Centre open, and then the community spent a few more years after that trying to keep the land from being sold.
It was long and hard, and it always seemed like it was just a matter of time before the land was sold and the chance for a new Kelvin was dead.
Things look better now. Hopefully this will work out.
The fight to save Kelvin taught me and gave me a chance to try and help out my community, but it wore me out.
But I’m happy.
If the people of Elmwood hadn’t fought in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012, we wouldn’t have this today.
Congratulations, Elmwood. You deserve it.
