NEW UNIVERSAL ACCESS RAMP OPENED - August 17, 2013

Driving by the Hall, you may have noticed construction work going on between the Hall and the Old Fire Hall, next door. With funding from a Federal Government grant, we have built a long sloping ramp up to a new landing by the front door. The opening Ceremony was held after the HI Neighbour Day Parade when President David Malek cut the ribbon. Charley Pickard was in charge of the crew of volunteers doing the work. We'd like to thank Charley, Shiela and specially all the folks who have donated some time to make it happen.

HALL CELEBRATED 90 YEARS IN OUR COMMUNITY - Saturday, March 24th 2012

Yes, 90 years ago the Hall opened its doors to the Errington community - Over the years, the building has been added on to, dug under and renovated in many ways - roofs, stairs, floors, doors, windows and washrooms have all been replaced and changed, but the old building still echoes to the sounds of music, laughter and children playing. To observe this 90th birthday we hosted 2 events, an Old Timers Tea and a 90th ANNIVERSARY CONCERT. Both were well attended and very entertaining. It was great to see so many familiar faces in the Hall again.

If you have any photos or memories of the Hall you'd like to share with us, contact us at ewmhinfo@gmail.com and we'll get something organized.
