The SOS is one step closer to offering its program and services out of the old Qualicum Beach Elementary School site.

Last Thursday, Society of Organized Services Executive Director Renate Sutherland was at the site where she formerly signed the lease and handed over a cheque to School District 69 Superintendent Rollie Koop.

“We are really excited to be able to provide programming and services here in Qualicum Beach,” said Sutherland. “Our goal is to ensure that seniors and others in the community have access to needed programs and services despite not having access to a vehicle or having difficulty with the bus system.”

Koop added that the new agreement at the school is a positive thing for the area.

“The Qualicum School District is pleased to have been able to enter into this lease agreement with the SOS,” he said. “This commitment will allow the parties to ensure that the former QBES site continues to be a vibrant and contributing community asset.”

Over the coming months the SOS will be working out the details surrounding its occupancy at the new location.
