Forshee Hall continues to attract events

Forshee Community Hall seems to be a hub of activity all year long, and, even as some country halls

Forshee Community Hall seems to be a hub of activity all year long, and, even as some country halls seem to have disappeared along with changing times, this hall continues to flourish.

The hall’s AGM will be held March 15 at 5 p.m. and will include potluck and cards. The meeting starts at 5 p.m. and supper will be held at 6 p.m.

Beauchamp Colclough, secretary treasurer for the Forshee Community Hall, said the hall is a busy place with events and activities ongoing.

The hall is a natural meeting place for family gatherings including reunions, weddings, funerals and dances. It has also proven to be a popular spot for organizations and groups to get together for meetings. Participants have traveled from Edmonton, Calgary, and even from points in Saskatchewan and British Columbia for these meetings.

Dance music with Country Gold North which is held the first Friday of each month has proven to be popular and usually attracts from 60 to 110 people.

“Lots of people travel to come to these dances, Colclough said.

With lunch included in the low admission price of $10, and children under the age of 17 allowed in for free, it is not surprising some good crowds show up to attend these dances.

Another popular event held at the Forshee Hall is the Academy of European Swords which is held Monday evenings.

Justin Skjonsberg, who brought in the course, said interest is catching on in the European martial art sport and up to 24 participants have showed up for a training session.
