The T.T. Skov Auditorium – Guelph Evergreen Centre

 

 

The Evergreen Senior’s Centre was officially opened on February 19, 1992. The RGC Fund contributed $300,000 towards its construction and the naming of the T.T. Skov Auditorium where thousands of residents have since gathered for events, social activities, recreational sports, arts and crafts, enriching the lives of senior residents in so many ways.
