So many building spaces have been taken from us. The Benson Room above Books & Company is no longer available. Meeting Rooms for day or night are very hard to find in Picton that are convenient and that don’t cost an arm and a leg. As we are a non-profit organization we have little funds to pay for such places to meet.
We are a movement that works for positive change in our Local Council, our Provincial and our Federal Governments. Many ideas come forth at these meetings, ideas that transform our community into a better place to live, play and work. We contribute to a healthy society and that is exactly what the Picton Town Hall also stands for, a place of gathering, a place to socialize and or work for the betterment of our community. To take this wonderful historical downtown Picton building from all of us, would be a travesty. This is truly A HALL FOR ALL and we at Council of Canadians Quinte, want to keep it that way in public hands. We hope you do too.
