The Dalkeith His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety’s win­dow fund will get a high-en­ergy boost Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 1.

That is when two Zumba in­struc­tors com­bine their tal­ents to put on the “best Mon­day Night Zumba show in town” at 7 p.m. at L’école sec­ondaire catholique Le Re­lais in Alexan­dria.

Money raised dur­ing the event will help the so­ci­ety put in a sec­ond store­front win­dow at the Robert­son Clark build­ing in Dalkeith.

Wear com­fort­able cloth­ing and shoes. Zumba in­struc­tors Bubpha Boom­prom-Gleuck, of Glen Robert­son, and Louise Stephen­son, of Van­kleek Hill, will lead the evening's ac­tiv­ity.

DHS pays all ex­penses re­lat­ing to the main­te­nance of the Robert­son Clark prop­erty and Robert­son Mills park.

The Robert­son Clark build­ing was con­structed in 1867 as a gen­eral store and post of­fice. The store had two large store­front win­dows, one on either side of the front door. When the store closed in the early 1900s, the Ro­man Catholic Church took over and cre­ated St. Paul’s Chapel.

Dur­ing that pe­riod, the out­side of the build­ing was cov­ered in sid­ing that blocked the two store­front win­dows. The so­ci­ety pur­chased the prop­erty in 2012. In July, 2018 DHS re­placed one win­dow. The Robert­son Clark build­ing is the old­est pub­lic lo­cal his­toric build­ing in the area.
