The Old School House in Qualicum Beach will don new solid fir, heritage doors thanks to the Rotary Club of Qualicum Beach and the Rotary Club of Qualicum Beach Sunrise.

The two clubs donated $7,400 for the new doors, to be put on the sides of the building when the current renovations are complete and in time for the 100th anniversary celebrations of the building next July.

The executive director of TOSH, Corinne James, said the current doors in those locations swell in the winter making them nearly impossible to open and causing a fire hazard.

“Now we’ll have these wonderful new doors that will last for the next one hundred years,” she said.

The art centre is owned by the Town of Qualicum Beach and operated by the art gallery.

Town councillor Mary Brouilette said the building has heritage status and therefore heritage doors were needed.

“The Rotary Clubs just made it happen,” she said.

There will also be plaques for both clubs installed near the new doors.

Town staff have been working to repair the foundation, structural framing, drainage, and other work on the heritage building for the past few months.

There is no end date set for completion of the renovations at this time.
