Notch Hill Natter By Jill Goward The Directors and active volunteers of Notch Hill Town Hall are proudly breathing a sigh of relief now that the summer months are well and truly here and there are no major events planned for a while. It’s been a busy year so far and, as with many community halls, most of the work required to host fundraising events is done by only a handful of members. They work hard for all of us and for the good of the community. However, our hall is not completely dormant. There are several weddings, memorials and private functions booked throughout the year and what a beautiful setting for those. Plans are under way for a Dog Show/Party in September depending on how much interest is shown. In the past an actual Dog Show was very popular and well attended but the organizers are hoping this one will be a social occasion for dog owners – more of an informal “Show & Tell” but with a few minor contests and prizes thrown in. There may be dog trainers or agility experts giving interesting presentations, etc. but for the main part, it should be relaxing canine fun. For more information and to express interest please call Sheila at 250-675-4174. In the meantime, take time to drive by the hall and maybe bring along a family picnic. There is shade, an outhouse and of course, a picnic table under the shelter of the train viewing platform. At around 4 o’clock on Sunday afternoons, the amazing Rocky Mountaineer train can be seen in all its glory heading west. Maybe it will slow down long enough for its passengers to briefly enjoy the historic community of Notch Hill. Have a safe summer. www.notchhillhall.com
