Volunteers help get new roof for hall

Work has begun on the new roof of historic Notch Hill Hall and promises to make the premises look smarter and newer

Work has begun on the new roof of historic Notch Hill Hall and promises to make the premises look smarter and newer, yet still in keeping with character of Notch Hill.

“This is all possible because of the hard work of many, many volunteers past and present, sponsors, professionals, local tradespeople, politicians, and residents of Sorrento, Notch Hill and nearby communities,” says an appreciative Jill Goward, who offers sincere thanks for the contributions and efforts.

In the meantime, there are still events planned, including the Trade Show on Saturday, Oct. 3 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Goward says it will be a full house with many interesting products on display. Admission is free.

On Sunday, Oct. 4, the hall will host the Community Harvest Pot Luck Dinner at 5 p.m.

“Once again, you are invited to bring along your favourite casserole, salad, dessert or other baked goodies to share with your neighbours and friends,” says Goward, noting the dinner is a great opportunity for folks that are new to the area to get to know people of all ages.

“If anyone has any suggestions on how organizers can entertain, accommodate and raise funds for the continuance of this great property that has been entrusted to our care, the association would be happy to hear them,” she says.

Goward says hall members hope to have great attendance at the various events held in the hall.

“And, we look hope that includes more of the former trustees too,” she adds.
