Waitaki Deputy Mayor Hugh Perkins officially opens the redeveloped Omarama Community and Memorial Hall yesterday.
Fundraising to pay for the $650,000 redevelopment of the old World War 2 memorial hall began after the project was first mooted in 2009.
Omarama Inc chairman Craig Dawson said the revamped hall (right) included a gymnasium and a medical consultation room.
It also had broadband internet access, and doubled as Civil Defence headquarters in the case of an emergency.
Deputy Mayor Hugh Perkins said the hall was a ''magnificent building'' that would benefit Omarama in many different ways for many years to come.
