Elvis fans were treated to a great evening of entertainment by impersonator Peter Irwin on May 4. Peter and The Memphis Rebels performed in the Wingham Town Hall Theatre to a nearly sold out crowd. Great to see the theatre in such good use.
The Town Hall Theatre and Council Chambers was the scene of the reveal of the renovations that have taken place over the past few months. Special guests were invited to a wine and cheese gathering in the Council Chambers at 2:00 p.m. Doors to the theatre were opened to the public at 3:00 with the reveal officially taking place at 3:30 p.m.
Theatre committee chairperson Doug Kuyvenhoven showed slides of the work that had taken place in the theatre. He explained that he initially had a limited vision of changes, but that the group of volunteers just kept at it, and the results are phenomenal!! Kuyvenhoven explained the details of everything that had been done and then local business owner, John Frieburger, provided a magnificent slideshow of his wildlife pictures. Mr. Frieburger has travelled far and wide through Canada, Alaska and Montana photographing wildlife in their natural habitat.
We are extremely fortunate to have this facility and even more fortunate to have the volunteer spirit so alive and well in Wingham. Thank you to everyone involved in this project.
