We are very pleased to be able to announce and celebrate the naming of the Workshop within the Performing Arts Centre in honour of our friend and colleague, Gord Lytle, who served as Head of Maintenance at CDS for 29 years.
This workshop served as a sanctuary for Gord as he would utilize the space and machines to build cabinets, shelves and other structures for the School. When the workshop was in full swing for the creation of magnificent sets for our Drama productions, Gord was known to stop by frequently to check on the progress of these sets.
The Gord Lytle Workshop is located at the back of the Theatre and connects to the Middle and Senior Schools through the Richardson Walkway. Community members pass by often as they walk to assemblies and events in our Performing Arts Centre. We feel this is a fitting tribute to a man who meant so much to CDS.
In addition to the Gord Lytle Workshop, CDS donated a bench to the Town of Aurora in Gord’s name earlier this summer. The bench is located along the walking path into Machell Park, just off Orchard Heights.
CDS will gratefully accept gifts toward both of these projects in Gord Lytle’s memory.
