Harmony Gets Comfortable

September 21, 2023

Thanks to a grant from Community Foundation Grey Bruce, the Auditorium is now a more comfortable place to spend an evening.  The centre section of seating has been replaced with new, modern, comfortable chairs.  The switch to chairs allows for much more flexibility in the Auditorium, as they can be moved or removed as needed.  We can now open up a dance floor or set up cafe tables and chairs.  Recently, removal of the chairs allowed Look Up Circus to hold their summer camp in the Auditorium where the high ceilings allowed for set-up of the high circus apparatus.  

Many of the old wooden pews were sold at auction and buyers, like Holly Sled of Rock the Sound, are happy to have a piece of the old Knox Church as a keepsake.  Any excess wood from the pew removal was donated to Intersections Wood Collaborative and will lead a new life as a piece of fine wooden furniture or art. The goal is to replace the rest of the ground floor pews with chairs whenever funding allows.  If you are interested in sponsoring a chair or purchasing a pew, please contact us at info@harmonycentre.ca
