ANNUAL PLANT SALE COMING TO THE HALL
So if/when you are finally able to begin gardening again, and have some perennials to separate, you can always put some aside and donate them to The Hall. We can even arrange pick up if dropping them off is a nuisance.
It is time to mark your calendar again. The annual Plant Sale at The Hall is returning for 2017 on Saturday June 3rd with the doors opening at 9:00 am.

ANOTHER NIGHT OF MUSIC AT THE HALL
A great turnout, a great show. It was Open Mic night at The Hall and once again the audience was treated to an incredible variety of music, featuring some amazingly talented musicians and performers. We were even privileged to host several new performers who heard about our evenings, and decided to give us a try.
Dave Dunlop was one of five entertainers making their first appearance at The Hall
The result was a three hour show, full of tremendous music, a lot of laughter and even a spontaneous audience 'choir' at one point when everyone broke into song! And sounded fantastic!
Bruce Gibson blew the windows out with his tribute to Chuck Berry
Open Mic is back with a vengeance at The Hall and simply gets better every week. Proceeds from the Open Mic nights is now being directed toward a major electrical upgrade for the annex/kitchen. Not as glamorous a project as some but the support received from these nights permit the Association to continue the rejuvenation of The Hall as a centre of culture and community.
Once again Donna Benjamin put her heart and soul into her music
Many, many thanks to the musicians, audience members and the volunteers who make these nights of magic happen.

SAINT PATRICK'S KITCHEN PARTY ROCKS THE HALL
The Hall was lit with green and alive with the sounds of Ireland tonight as Hooligan's Ruff hosted about 60 people at what has become their annual kitchen party.
The tunes were lively and entertaining, at times poignant, and at other times brought out tears .... of laughter.
Jackie was a blur of activity tending bar
Another wonderful evening at The Hall.

GREAT EVENING OF OPEN MIC AT THE HALL
The sound of music and laughter filled The Hall Friday night as another fabulous open mic night had people laughing, clapping, singing along. We are so fortunate to have such a variety of talent who come out on a regular basis to share their abilities and help support the ongoing restoration efforts.
Every two weeks we have fortunate to have such talented musicians providing 'backup'
With a wonderful variety of musical choice, the sound ranges from country to soul, blues to folk every evening. The crowd appreciates those who perform and provide such a terrific night of entertainment, and all for only a donation.
Andrew is one of the consistent performers at The Hall. Always appreciated by the audience
Harriet treats the audience to a couple of old favourites
Thank you to all the performers, back up musicians and volunteers who combine their donated talents to make these events the success they are~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
