A ribbon-cutting ceremony on September 24th, 2023, marked the official opening of the Ferguson’s Falls Community Hall in the Township of Drummond/North Elmsley.
Council, Staff, special guests and approximately 120 members of the public were on hand to celebrate the grand opening of the newly built Ferguson’s Falls Hall at 1362 Ferguson’s Falls Road.
The original hall opened on October 9, 1924, and almost 99 years later the Community has a new hall.
“The Hall is an integral part of the community as a place to host a gathering with family and friends. Council and Staff are extremely happy and proud to officially open the doors and share with members of the public, after a year of dedicated hard work, this wonderful asset to our Township. We are excited and grateful for this beautiful building to be enjoyed by the whole community.” said Reeve Fournier.
This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario.
Council & Staff also welcomed the public to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the amalgamation of the Townships of Drummond and North Elmsley. In 1998 hundreds of municipalities across Ontario were amalgamated making the Township of Drummond/North Elmsley what it is today.
A special thank you to Memory Lane and the Clyne Brothers for their lively entertainment.
