HENSALL, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/13/14 -- Department of Canadian Heritage
The Government of Canada has provided $182,700 through the Building Communities Through Arts and Heritage program to support the renovation of the Hensall Town Hall.
Ben Lobb, Member of Parliament (Huron-Bruce), announced the funding today on behalf of the Honourable Shelly Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages.
With this support, the Municipality of Bluewater will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Town Hall's construction in 1914 by restoring its upper room so it can be used by the community.
-- The upper room was used as a performance hall from 1914 to1975, when structural concerns forced it to be closed to public use. -- These upgrades will allow the performance hall to become a fully accessible community performance space for both smaller professional productions and community presentations.
"The Government of Canada is proud to invest in this commemorative project that will see an unused room transformed into a fully functional performance space, all while providing the community with a lasting legacy of its past."
-The Honourable Shelly Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages
"The Hensall Town Hall is an important gathering place for the community, but sadly its second floor performance hall has fallen into disuse over the past years. With the Government of Canada's support, it will be restored into a space that all will enjoy for many years to come."
-Ben Lobb, Member of Parliament (Huron-Bruce)
"On behalf of the Municipality of Bluewater and the community of Hensall, we thank Canadian Heritage for this generous contribution toward the restoration of our Opera House on this the 100th anniversary of the Hensall Town Hall. Very soon the Town Hall will once again be the cultural heart of the community with plays, concerts, and dances being performed year round."
-Bill Dowson, Mayor of the Municipality of Bluewater
