A new hall is being built on the same site as the original Liberty Hall.

Glittering gala will help to raise funds for Liberty Hall

A fun filled evening featuring delicious food, great musical entertainment and a live and silent auction

A fun filled evening featuring delicious food, great musical entertainment and a live and silent auction is to be the next big fundraiser for the partially completed Liberty Hall.

The Glittering Gala, to be held Oct. 18 at the Peter Lougheed Community Centre, is to include entertainment by country music singer Tracey Millar and a catered meal by Bob Ronnie’s catering.

Dariel Sroka, who is co-chairing the event with Karen Boyes said the live auction will have a slight twist to it. One of the tables will actually be auctioned and the top bidder will have an opportunity to sit at that table with friends of choice. At the end of the evening, the person who bought the table will be able to take home all the pieces of silverware and flatware included in the eight-piece setting and the centerpiece.

A signed Edmonton Oilers jersey, a signed baseball from Toronto Blue Jays and a John Deere child’s wagon full of an assortment of alcohol are some of the items included in the silent auction.

The evening will showcase professional singer/songwriter Tracy Millar who is a well-known entertainer in the Canadian country music scene.

Tickets will be drawn on a raffle for an Arctic Cat 500 quad, a propane barbecue donated by PennWest and a mini Apple iPad donated by BDO during the evening.

As the name suggests, The Glittering Gala is to be a special evening and everyone is encouraged to dress up for the occasion.

“Ladies who have a dress or outfit they’ve saved for a special occasion should plan on bringing it out of hiding,” said Sroka.

“Now’s your chance to dress up and feel and look great for the evening,” she said.

The new hall is now at the lock up stage, but plumbing and electrical work is not completed.

The original Liberty Hall was built in 1921 as a temporary structure.

Now, almost a century later, the hall remains a busy place, continuing to house many activities, including the ever popular Springdale Players annual dinner theatre.

But, even though the dinner theatre is alive and well and other activities including reunions, picnics, dinners and exercise classes are held at the hall, the facility is tired and old. The roof leaks badly, the water and sewer pipes freeze every winter, the kitchen is not up to commercial qualifications and operational costs continue to rise.

The hall board has been diligently saving for many years to build a new facility and were most pleased that Ponoka County contributed $140,000 in matching funds for their project.

The new hall is on the same site as the original one and is approximately the same size.

The old hall will remain operational until the new facility is completely functional.
