We would like to extend a sincere thank you to outgoing
president, Garth Baumann. He has worked tirelessly in this
role for many years and has had a very positive impact on
Carlin Hall. Our board will continue to benefit through his
knowledge and experience as he serves as our vice-president.
We’ve been fortunate to have a volunteer group that works
tirelessly to make things happen at Carlin Hall. Whether it’s
the annual spring clean up, potluck dinners, or the other
regularly scheduled events, we are grateful for their energy
and dedication to the Hall. We are always ready for more
hands to help out!
This is the time of year when our annual membership drive
takes place. Your support in purchasing a single membership
for $10 or a family membership for $15 is appreciated. These
are available at public events hosted at Carlin Hall.
We are hosting two very important fundraising events at
Carlin Hall in June. On June 6th, we are lending our support
to the efforts of the Second Harvest Food Bank in Salmon
Arm. Although most people think of the winter months as the
times of the year to pitch in and help out, the summer months
also find several people coming to area food banks. In
recognition of this, we are sponsoring a special Carlin Hall
Coffee House. Your donation for admission, cash or nonperishable
food items, will go directly to the food bank. This
promises to be a fun event again this year, so c’mon out and
enjoy some “home grown entertainment”.
On June 19th at 7:30 pm, we are very excited to host
Canadian Whitewater, comprised of Chris Stevens, Jim
Leduc, Bert Jensen, and Charlie Veaudry. This is a hot, hard
driving, high energy bluegrass band! Canadian Whitewater,
along with guest duo, Larry & Jane Stephenson, promise to
provide a memorable evening of musical entertainment. Funds
raised through admission at the door will go towards the
ongoing operational expenses of Carlin Hall. Be there when
the doors open at 6:30 to get your seat! Bring your friends
and let’s all get behind this project and have an awesome
evening of music and other surprises!!
We would like to thank our community and all who have made
this such a successful and fulfilling year. Stay tuned to
various ‘happenings’ on the website. Have a safe and happy
