It’s great to have you on the team! We know that everyone’s time and commitments vary – but in a small town, the things that make this place special just have to be a labour of love. From the testimonials people have left on the petition, and in comments elsewhere, it’s clear this building is loved.
Tell us how you want to put that love into action! And if you’re not sure, that’s O.K., too – no need to choose just one area. There are so many ways to get involved in Team Town Hall’s efforts.
Donating to the cause is only one part of the puzzle, you have lots of people to meet and fun things to do when you become a member of one of our teams – Building, Fundraising, Finance and Grants, Communications, Use Plan. If you aren’t available on an ongoing basis, just let us know what you have in mind, and the best time and way to get in touch. We’ll find a way to make it work.
Below are the board members of Team Town Hall. These are some people who have committed extra time to research, talk to council, help out at events, and bring the grant application together.
Many of you reading this post also have signed petitions, showed up at council meetings, come out for events, already given donations and organized fundraisers. Many of you may have yet to attend a performance in the theatre, and others have memories going way back. Whoever you are, you’re welcome.
Let’s keep building our team.
