Today, the sale of Knox United Church becomes final. The plan for the building is that it will become Harmony Centre run by a non-profit board. The purchasers have several plans for the building.
One that has been announced is that the basement kitchen and auditorium will be a soup kitchen run by not-for-profit Owen Sound Hunger and Relief Effort, or OSHaRE. The organization is hopeful that they will be up and running by February 14, 2013 - Valentine's Day.
It is sad to see the end of Knox but it is good that the plans are that the building will be still be used to serve the community. The former Knox congregation is pleased to see that the building will not be torn down. Since January 1, 2012, many former Knox members are now active participants in the life and work of the new Georgian Shores United Church.
