To prove that first impressions are important, a local recreation centre is re-vamping its front door logo.

"We want to get rid of the old couple image," said Linda Lapointe, a student in the social services program at Northern College, completing her co-op placement at the Timmins Senior Citizen Centre.

"We want a more modern logo that will advertise what we do.

"All seniors don't look like the ones on our door."

The centre is holding a design contest, open to all Timmins residents, to help find a new logo.

"The image of the old couple is typical," said Hélène Bélanger, co-ordinator of the centre. "We've had the same logo for over 20 years, and it's time for something new."

Belanger said the new logo will help inform residents about exactly what the centre offers, as it will read Timmins Senior Recreation Centre.

The centre offers various programs for senior citizens, including card games and bowling. Members are required to be 55 years of age or older.

The window on which the logo will be placed is three-by-two feet, and the design can be any shape. Entries must be bilingual and read Timmins Senior Recreation Centre, along with the centre's hours of operation, Monday to Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

A prize of $100 will be awarded to the contest winner, selected by the centre's board of directors. Submissions will be accepted until May 31.

To submit a local design, drop entries off at 272 Third Ave., or e-mail to
