***A Message to all Community Members from the Board of Directors:***
The Ardoise Community Hall has been open for over 30 years, providing community members with many different special events to attend and participate and a place for the community to enjoy whether through volunteer functions or private rentals. The community has always supported the hall over the years and we thank you for your support. However, due to the rising cost of essential services (oil, power, etc) and declining revenues from fundraising events, the Ardoise Hall is currently in financial trouble and will close by April 2015 if enough money isn't raised to sustain the hall as it currently is. The Board has NOW launched an aggressive fundraising campaign to save the hall. Over the next few months, there will be a more then average fundraising events taking place at various places around the community. We urge all community members who want the hall to remain a part of this community to support our fundraising efforts as you have done so generously in the past. We Thank-You for your support and we hope that you will help us in our Journey in SAVING THE ARDOISE COMMUNITY HALL!! If you would like to help, please contact any board member using the contact information on the Board Members webpage.
