Dexter's "Old Town Hall" celebrates 150 Years (1857-2007)! The recent Grand Re-Opening held at the 10 Hall Street location was enjoyed by many. A tour of the building was like a walk down memory lane for folks as they recalled the memories of generations and the days of theatre, town meetings, dances and roller skating. It was evident that the Community had done the right thing in saving the building from permanent closure. Andy Conway had a vision, we put together a Team and we set out to accomplish the seemingly impossible!
It took only twelve months to secure funding, hire GL Frost Architecture, E W Littlefield, Contractor and implement the renovation plan to bring the building to where it is today; a vibrant, active center of the Community! Harry S. Truman once said "It is amazing how much can be accomplished when it does not matter who gets the credit". Dexter has proven that statement to be so true! Whether you planned, cleaned, painted, baked, chaperoned, donated or volunteered; the whole event could not have come together, without each contribution. Businesses donated everything for our public supper and door prizes. The Volunteer Firefighters prepared a fabulous spaghetti supper and Town Employees served our guests! To date, “Friends of the Community Center” have donated over $3,700 to our heating fund for the building. That renovation will be done in the coming weeks! Thanks to all of your for all you have done! I am proud to be a member of the “Dexter Team”.
The new elevator gives access to both levels of the building to make it in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). We invite you to call 924-3438 if you would like to rent the building for your next business or family celebration.
