New gallery for NHRS

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - North Hathey

On Fri­day, Au­gust 15th, the North Hat­ley Re­cre­ation So­ci­ety (NHRS) cel­e­brated the open­ing of the new gallery at the mu­nic­i­pal «Pleas­ant View Beach». Fol­low­ing the rib­bon cut­ting, there was a mi­choui and dance to cel­e­brate the com­ple­tion of the gallery.

This project was re­al­ized due to the par­tic­i­pa­tion of the three groups: the Re­cre­ation So­ci­ety, the PACTE Ru­ral and the mu­nic­i­pal­ity of North Hat­ley. The Re­cre­ation So­ci­ety has held garage sales, dances, an­tique shows, and spon­sored the Mother’s Day Run to raise $13,000 to redo the gallery. The PACTE Ru­ral de Mem­phrem­a­gog gen­er­ously con­trib­uted $12,000 to­ward the project. The build­ing, which is over 80 years old, has fallen into dis­re­pair and this was the first step of the build­ing be­ing re­stored. Phase II will be to re­place the win­dows, sid­ing etc. Fundrais­ing for this part of the project will start soon. The or­ga­niz­ers thank all the vol­un­teers who helped.
