MPP Arnott highlights Acton Town Hall in the Legislature
On May 5, Wellington-Halton Hills MPP Ted Arnott attended the opening of Citizens’ Hall at the Acton Town Hall Centre.
Mr. Arnott delivered a statement in the Ontario Legislature on May 7 highlighting the event and thanking the many community leaders and volunteers who made the day possible.
“Through a unique, grass roots effort based on community spirit and partnership, the Acton Town Hall, built in the late 19th century, was saved from demolition and lovingly restored,” Mr. Arnott told the Legislature. “Located at the corner of Bower Avenue and Willow Street, the Acton Town Hall Centre has become a majestic addition to the Province’s stock of heritage properties. In this, the 21st century, it will be used for all manner of community events, everything you could possibly imagine.”
“As the MPP for Wellington-Halton Hills, I want to express my thanks to all who were involved in this outstanding community project,” continued Mr. Arnott. “I must begin with the members of Heritage Acton, whose vision and dedication were the driving force behind the project. The Rotary Club of Acton has been a great supporter as well, along with the Town of Halton Hills and many generous businesses and individuals.”
The Ontario Trillium Foundation contributed a grant of $150,000 towards the project, but local fundraising efforts are ongoing.
