There are four celebrations going on in the Village of Eden Mills in 2017:
Going Carbon Neutral celebrates 10 years;
Community Hall celebrates 100 years;
Village of Eden Mills celebrates 175 years; and
Canada celebrates 150 years of Confederation
The EMCC Board of Directors and community volunteers are organizing events throughout the year to celebrate these anniversaries and raise funds to match the Canada150 funding. The community club has up to $118,770 from the Government of Canada through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program. The funding will support the Community Club’s ongoing energy-retrofit of the Community Hall, technical upgrades to its theatre space, as well as electrical and accessibility upgrades.
We have until March 31, 2018 to raise the additional funds needed to reach our goal and maximize the funding available. Will you help?
There are many ways:
- Volunteer: As simple as setting up chairs for an event to actually organizing an event. Contact us.
- Donate: Make tax deductible donation, one-time or on-going donation, to the Eden Mills & District Community Club Canada150 fund.
- Participate: Attend one or all the special events that are planned.
