Letters: Community association does a lot

Local Sooke resident defends the good deeds of the local community association

I have just read your article, “All talk and no action” (Feb. 6, Sooke News Mirror).

I feel who (ever) wrote the piece on the Sooke Community Association should have sat down with some of the directors, past and present, and asked to look at the history of the association, and what it has done in Sooke for the last 60-70 years. Talk to some long-timers at the food bank and Meals on Wheels how some of their directors thought (they) should donate monies to help pay for the “free” hydro and fuel, etc. for the use of the fridges and stoves. Ask some of the ball players, fans, where and who got them all or most of the fields they play (on) today.

Turning the hall into a movie theatre a few times a week (they do on Saltspring Island) people don’t have to get on a ferry 25 minutes and we can go to a movie in Langford.

The beat goes on.
