Update: Sunday, February 16
It was learned earlier today, via a post on their Facebook page, that the Riverdale Community Centre’s canteen in Rivers will no-longer be accepting cash as of Monday, February 17. The decision was made at a board meeting Tuesday evening. Debit, Visa, and MasterCard will be accepted.
“There was a number of things that contributed to this decision, not just from 2020 but dating back from the past few years” read one post from the Recreation Commission.
A subsequent post from the Recreation Commission indicated that the decision will go to the board for review at their next meeting, following a number of comments and concerns raised by members of the community and those who frequent the facility.
