The Ontario Government has issued a province-wide Stay-At-Home order starting Thursday, April 8 at 12:01AM. Case rates, hospitalizations, and ICU occupancy are increasing rapidly, threatening to overwhelm the health care system. Ontario is at a tipping point and we must do everything we can to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Ye Olde Towne Hall will remain closed during the Stay At Home Order. Due to the uncertainty of restrictions, going forward we are not accepting rental reservations, all programs are cancelled, and we are not able to say when concerts will begin again. Please stay safe, get a vaccine as soon as possible.
Although the historic building is owned by the Municipality of North Middlesex, we are responsible for maintenance and operational costs. There is currently no income, as it comes from events or rental of our facility. Expenses remain, and by maintaining only essential services, the expenses continue to be over $1,000 per month. No Government Assistance has come to the arts services so far. So, we’re left to rely on cash reserves and, most importantly, you.
There needs to continue to be a social epicentre for Ailsa Craig. It’s our mandate to preserve the building for the use of the community.
So, will you help us to proceed forward?As a registered charity, we will issue a tax receipt for your donations. Gift certificates can also be purchased to be used when Indoor Concerts begin again.
