It has been a very busy winter for the members of our Hall Board. I'm pleased to say that many of the "family" issues have abated or been resolved and life is returning to just the regular busyness of life!
At our Annual Meeting in February, two new members joined our Board. We welcome Crystal (Wallace) and Allen Gilchrist to the Oro Station Community Hall Board.
The Bid-Euchre Tournament in January was a great success and we thank Pat Shelswell, from Edgar, for kindly guiding us through the day. By now, the March tournament will have taken place. We all realize just how much work Lynda Crawford puts into running the Euchre Night each week and are so grateful for her contribution of time and energy.
We want to thank our great neighbours and friends Walter Iles, Peter Beer, Allen Gilchrist and Jake Leigh, for all the many hours that they have put into preparing and maintaining the ice rink this year. Even though the season was so up and down, we know that the community was able to enjoy lots of skating. We also want to thank Dean Bell of C.R.S. for the use of fencing around the rink. We also must thank Jeff Crawford for faithfully plowing the snow at the hall for us so that our winter events could take place. Thanks also to some of these same people and Peter and Donna Cramp for giving up many hours of their free time to work so hard on the basement renovations... it is appreciated!
We held a very informative "Crime Stoppers" information night in February. Thanks to Mike and Bev Williams for sharing what 'Crime Stoppers" is all about. They are looking for volunteers to represent the Oro Station area. "Crime Stoppers" have found that communities with their signage and citizen involvement, have fewer criminal offences occur.
Our Pancake Supper in February was a great success, with good food and enjoyable company had by all. Thanks to all who cooked, served, cleaned and participated.
This Hall belongs to the Oro Station Community and your continued support of our functions is what keeps us active and financially viable. Plans are in the works for Canada Day. Watch for an update of events in the next North Simcoe News.
