It's been a busy winter behind the scenes for the Hanna Roundhouse Society.
They held their Annual General Meeting on March 26 and Society President Sandra Beaudoin said there was lots to discuss.
"We're raising funds to work on our roof," she told 99.5 Drum FM. "We had a few issues with wind last year; it blew part of our boiler room roof off that was patched initially when we purchased the building. We're also resurfacing the first five bays in order to stop some water leakage."
The estimated cost of the work, including engineering, is $66,000, of which the Roundhouse Society must put up half.
"We're hoping to do some barbeques and perhaps celebrate our fifth anniversary since we purchased the building in 2013," outlined Beaudoin. "We are kind of informally discussing having something out at the property maybe during the summer, maybe some sort of family event, a barbeque or something along that line."
They also have a reburbished speeder that was donated by a couple of retired railway workers, which she thinks could be a nice attraction.
"Until we are able to have all the paperwork and a few more other things in line, we are not allowed to have any events in our building," noted Beaudoin. "Once that is completed then we can move forward and we think our real fundraising efforts will come when people are able to be in the building for an event.
