HELP TOUCH UP THE HALL


After almost a year without any TLC, the exterior of The Hall is looking a little tired.   We would invite anyone willing to wield a brush to join us 0900 Monday June 21st to touch up trim, spruce up clapboards and any other small touch ups which might be necessary.  Hope to see a good turn out and get The Hall looking good again.

Thank you to all in advance.   See you there.

ANOTHER STEP FORWARD COMPLETED AT THE HALL


Work is now complete on the clapboards on the bell tower, and the new front window is installed. Another step forward for The Hall and another small effort towards its' preservation for the community. A work party of volunteers will obviously soon be needed to tidy up the paintwork but what a great new look.

NEW WORK BEGINS AT THE HALL

This morning saw the arrival of the crew who will be doing repairs to the clapboard on the bell tower of The Hall and replacing the large lobby window overlooking the street.    Delayed by the onset of the pandemic, it is terrific to finally see the work getting under way.

FINAL SOCIAL-DISTANCE CONCERT OF THE SEASON

This evening's broadcast was the last Social-Distance Concert for the 2020 - 2021 season.   As we normally wind things down for the summer this seemed like a good time to end the season, and for this special broadcast Rob Bentley provided a bit of insight into the origins, the growth and development and the background workings of how these broadcasts came to life.
It is a fascinating hour and a half so if you missed it, be sure to take a look at Live Web Events and be prepared to a very interesting hour.
As we are concluding these for the season we wish to thank our sponsors:  The Hall, the Parrsboro Lions and CICR radio for their participation and cooperation in making these possible.
In addition we would like to thank all of the performers who have shared their time and talent in order to make these all possible.   They have helped get us through a very difficult year and hopefully come September we will be able to ramp back up to more normal activities at The Hall.
But above all, we all would like to thank Rob Bentley for his creativity, his efforts, his time and his enthusiasm for coming up with the concept and then, through a lot of trial and error and hard work, slowly developed these shows to their current level.
For now we wish every one  a good and safe summer.   Be kind to one another, keep yourself and everyone safe and we'll see you in September.

VIRTUAL OPEN MIC XXV THE FINAL FOR THE SEASON

This evening's virtual open mic brought these shows to an end for the summer, and hopefully when the season opens again in the fall, we will be able to hold open mic nights at The Hall once again.
We would like to thank our sponsors for these opportunities to bring music to the community:  The Hall, The Parrsboro Lions Club and CICR radio.  None of these would have been possible without the enthusiastic participation by all the performers and our thanks goes out to them.    But most of all we would like to thank Rob Bentley for his time, effort, patience and creativty which made the entire Social-Distance concert series possible.   We have now staged 61 performance evenings and will close out next week with Rob taking a look back at the past year, and perhaps giving us a bit of an inside look at the 'magic' behind the scenes.
Thank you all for your interest and support.   Be well.   Stay safe.   And hopefully we will see you all at The Hall in the fall.

CITIZENS' CHOIR MAKES THE CTV NATIONAL NEWS

Yes, your very own Parrsboro Citizens' Choir got a shout out from Lisa Laflamme last night for providing a positive 'note' with their rendition of  'Farewell to Covid-19'.   Well done to the choir and to Rob Bentley for his ingenious efforts to keep music alive at The Hall and in our community during this past difficult year.
