For a what seems like a very long time now (I'm sure most of you can relate) the Twin Butte Community Society has been fundraising towards a barrier-free addition onto the South-East corner of the Hall. This is in an effort to make our Hall more accessible to folks in wheelchairs, on crutches, or maybe just with bad knees, because let's be honest, those stairs are plain treacherous!
The split-level addition will provide the Hall with two barrier-free washrooms, a wheelchair lift giving access to both the basement and the main auditorium, a new and improved coat-check and ticketing area and (if we have our way) a small display area honoring the history of the Hall.
We want to thank our community for their on-going generosity, patience and commitment to this project, and especially to those contractors who put in a bid for construction in the spring of 2018. Upon receiving these bids, the board discovered we were short on funds and thought it irresponsible to proceed further until complete funding was secured.
To date, we have raised over $200,000. With the help of our new community grant-writer Liza Dawber (!!!), we are fervently hoping for positive news regarding a Federal matching grant application for $100,000 which would allow us to finally realize this dream.
