Update: Petition circulated at Chilliwack concert

According to a review on Page B10 of The Penticton Herald on 25 April, 2007, more than 500 people attended the recent Chilliwack concert held at Pen-Hi auditorium. The piece by John Moorehouse concludes:

"That brings me to the final note of the concert: the venue itself. A petition was circulated prior to the show, calling for the preservation of the Pen-Hi auditorium. Unless city council comes up with a plan to preserve the building by the end of June, the auditorium will face the wrecking ball once the Pen-Hi reconstruction project is complete in 2008. Most concert-goers readily signed, well aware of the auditorium's fine acoustics and value to the community."
