Help Mummers fix Mt. Tabor

The Marysburgh Mummers will update members and guests on the Mt. Tabor fire code renovations and the new TaborFix fundraising plans at tonight’s general meeting at 7 p.m. in the community theatre at Milford.
“Much remains to be done if Mount Tabor is to continue its contribution to the culture and economy of the County,” said George Underhill, TaborFix member. “The Marysburgh Mummers have identified several items, such as fire retardant curtains  and seating, lighting and other items which they have budgeted to address. There remains some $25,000 of remediation to be completed.  TaborFix, a group of volunteers chaired by Doug Parker, has been formed to help save this historic and valuable community asset.
“Those with an abiding concern for our historical building heritage may wish to donate money to the cause, and TaborFix will happily accept funds, small amounts or large. We’ve lost too many historical buildings.”
“Because the building is a County owned building, it’s up to the current council as to whether or not to spend the money,” said Lori Farrington, Mummers vice-chairman. “They are working on the budget right now.  However, we’re quite concerned that they will not budget the whole amount, and the money has to come from somewhere or the doors to Mt. Tabor could potentially close.  We feel that would be devastating to the community at large, not to mention the hundreds of Mummers who play on that stage.”
The Mummers seek support of their own fundraising efforts. In the short term, fund raising activities are planned including an auction, a euchre party, special concerts at Jackson’s Falls, with others in development.
*  To donate quality items to the auction call either Leon McConnel at 476-6606, Doug Parker at 476-1543 or George Underhill at 476-5940 and TaborFix will arrange a pick up:
* Donations to TaborFix – cheques can be made out to TaborFix and mailed to:  Diane Underhill, Treasurer, RR#2, Milford, ON K0K 2P0
*  Attend upcoming fundraising events – including the Euchre Party set for Tuesday, March 22, from 1-3:30pm at the Milford Town Hall. Great prizes and refreshments. Admission – $10 each
*   Volunteer to help at fundraising events (we need help at the auction and we’ll need ushers at an upcoming show)
*  Write a letter of support – What does Mt. Tabor mean to you?  Why is it an important cultural and heritage space for The County?  Email them to Lori Farrington: With your permission, these letters would be posted on the TaborFix blog to help spread the word and show support for this important heritage and cultural space.
