On Monday, September 28 Pincher Creek's Town Council voted to fund replacement windows on the south side of the Fred Huddlestun Seniors Centre . The centre has had issues with the windows for years, which previously lost their seal and now are dirty on the inside, blocking the view but letting in much of the glare. The Fred Huddlestun Seniors Citizens Society sent a letter of request to replace the windows with modern tinted windows. Council agreed to replace the windows up to a cost of $8,000 including painting, repairs to casings, and replacing rotten wood. The windows in place now are the original windows, installed in 1974.
Councillor Wayne Elliott said "The arena is going to be good for another 15 to 20 years, at least. We should be moving ahead," referring to recent work in the same building, mentioning the recent upgrades to the ice arena adjacent to the Huddlestun centre. Councillor Lorne Jackson said the windows have been an issue for years. Council unanimously agreed to replace the windows and directed administration to write a request to the MD of Pincher Creek asking for their help to cover the cost of the new windows and their installation.
