LETTER: Seniors could have home in community hall

There would need to be a massive fundraising approach to make a senior center happen.

RE: Seniors want permanent home (Letters, June 15)

There would need to be a massive fundraising approach to make a senior center happen. Let’s fix up the Sooke Community Hall and give the seniors what they need.

Herb Haldane, Sooke
