PARRSBORO: The Save the Hall project just came $5,000 closer to their vision of restoration the former Parrsboro Citizen's Band Hall when Dick Lemon from Dick's Island in Five Islands contributed $5,000 to Chair of Save the Hall Michael Fuller.
"The funds are for whatever purpose required in the project," Lemon said after presenting the cheque to Fuller.
"The plans for the hall are coming along step by step, we are in the process of finalizing a business plan to submit to government which will enable us to get a primary level of funding in place," Fuller said.
"Once we get construction drawings done we (Save the Hall committee) will have a realistic idea on exactly how much it is going to cost to restore the hall," the Chairman said.
Rekindling the soul of the community is how the committee and board members look at this project saying how an introduction of the hall back into the mainstream of the community.
"During the building process there will be a hastle of finding other facilities to use for those who currently use the hall, but once funding is in place and everything is moving ahead with the building and restoring it will be a hastle we look forward to," Fuller said.
The Chairman also added that the Film Society has been having great turnout's for the film's and throughout the summer will be showing one film per week the next being an animated film for the whole family "The Wallace and Gromit Movie: The Curse of the Were - Rabbit|" on July 16 beginning at 7:30 p.m.
