Community fund for bandstand project

Elmira’s bandstand, a heritage fixture in Gore Park, is in need of a major overhaul. To that end, Woolwich Township has launched a community fundraising drive to help restore the structure. Residents are encouraged to contribute to the effort.

Council has earmarked some $80,000 to tackle the basic structural deficiencies – much of the wood is rotting and needs to be replaced, as do the existing asbestos shingles. More extensive restoration work could be done if the community gets behind the project, however, prompting Coun. Julie-Anne Herteis to suggest a fund be established.
“This is a very important part of our town.”

Her idea was quickly endorsed by her council colleagues meeting Feb. 21, with Coun. Allan Poffenroth suggesting service clubs be enlisted to help.
