|Built as a memorial to those who died in World War I, the Errington War
Memorial Hall opened its doors on March 22nd, 1922. It is maintained by a non-profit
society made up of volunteers who sponsor cultural, social and recreational activities
for the community.
The Hall is located in Errington at 1390 Errington Road, approximately 6km southwest of Parksville on central Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. For a map and directions to the Hall - click here: Location For rental information - click: Rental
Yes, the World Music Summer Camp is returning this summer from August 11-15. Instructors Fana Soro and Sarah Van Borek, along with assistants Forrest Carson-Austin and Nadjema Soro, are all confirmed to teach marimba, drumming, and dances from Western and Southern Africa. They will place children new to the camp in the group appropriate to their age and experience. The $75 fee is the same as last year and the schedule will be, too (see the registration form for details). We'll again use the Hall for the concert/recital at the end of the week so the children will have the fun of performing on stage for the community. With returnees from last year, the camp is already more than half full, with only 10 spots remaining. Please let Val Dare, the camp coordinator, know at email@example.com if your child will be attending. Click here for: 2014 Registration Form

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.
The rain held off, the Neighbours gathered, and we all had a great time at the Breakfast, Art Show, Market, Parade, Auction and Dance. New this year and a real hit, was the Variety Show. Our thanks go out to all the volunteers who helped make the day such a success.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get something organized.
