Harlowe Community Centre Ready to Welcome Residents

November 23, 2021

The Harlowe Hall is an important community hub in North Frontenac.

The hall is a well-attended venue where residents enjoy lively community dinners, dances, local events and activities. According to the Town, prior to the pandemic, it wasn’t uncommon for events at the hall to attract more than 200 residents, with people attending from surrounding regions.

With investments from the Canada Community-Building Fund, North Frontenac was able to complete important upgrades to the building so it may continue to be enjoyed by residents.

Prior to the upgrades, the Town experienced major issues with water penetrating the basement of the hall, a leaky roof, and poor drainage. Thanks to the fund, the Town was able to fully rehabilitate the roof, install new eavestroughs to direct water away from the building, and upgrade the foundation to stop water penetration into the basement.

These upgrades resulted in expanded usage of the building, including use of the basement for storage without concerns of flooding. This project also renewed a sense of pride in the community for the Harlowe Hall, which can once again be used at full capacity.
