Athletic Hall donors needed

The Alberni Athletic Hall Society is part way towards its fundraising goal but it needs the public's help to reach it.

To the Editor,

The Alberni Athletic Association has heard nothing but rave reviews from those who attended Good Timber, the show brought to the Capitol Theatre to raise funds for the Athletic Hall wheelchair elevator fund. Everyone agreed that it was an exciting, first-rate performance with amazing energy and great music.

Now that the curtain is down, it’s time to thank the people who made it possible: our generous sponsors,  our volunteers and friends, and to Somass Drugs, Echo Centre staff, and Rollin Art Centre for advance ticket sales.

Wawmeesh Hamilton and other local media members provided excellent  coverage, for which we’re grateful.

We acknowledge the helpful and professional services of the Capitol Theatre and Houle Printing.

Last but not least, thanks go out to the Other Guys Theatre Company for a memorable experience that brought some Valley history to life during this centennial year.

The association has 15 per cent of the funds needed for the elevator, so stay tuned for more events to come.  In the meantime, call the Athletic Association at 250-723-3799 for more information.

Marusha Taylor,

for the Alberni Athletic Association
