Monument a little much for cash-strapped centre

To the editor,
There was an article in The News on May 28 in regard to the installation of a monument out in front of the new Wellness Centre.

My feeling on this article is the fact that someone was not thinking

correctly prior to this monument installation. It’s a known fact and is stated on a regular basis that the Wellness Centre is operating in the red.

It’s also known that the organization is trying to get local towns to close there own arenas, so that more people will attend the Wellness Centre.

I myself have no use for the Wellness Centre and a lot of Pictou County people agree with me. What really is the eye opener, when reading the article about the installation of the monument, is “Has someone lost there mind.” Unless the monument was donated to the Wellness Centre, and the installation was also at no cost, WHAT were they thinking.

Let’s see if they can get their priorities in order. Any organization running in the red would not spend money they don’t have until the facility is operating in the green and not making the debt hole deeper.

If in fact the monument installation was donated then I apologize.
