Warfield hall getting makeover

Work is currently underway to expand the facility to ensure it has sufficient room for everyone, come rain or shine.

The Warfield Community Hall sees considerable activity over the course of the year, between the annual Warfield Days celebration and a host of weddings, barbecues, and parties.

Work is currently underway to expand the facility to ensure it has sufficient room for everyone, come rain or shine.

Construction crews from Hil-Tech Contracting have been on-site since late fall excavating and pouring concrete forms for what will be a sizable addition to the popular community meeting place and rental facility.

“In most small communities the community hall is the focal point in the community,” said Vince Morelli, chief administrative officer for the Village of Warfield. “The crew is working on the addition of a new kitchen and washroom at the back of the hall.”

The $620,000 project extends the hall between the existing structure and the barbecue facility in the adjoining Village Square Park.

“The barbecue area won’t be affected,” Morelli said. “It’s just using up the empty space behind the hall.”

The project will expand the hall’s capacity from its current seating and commercial kitchen facility for 150 people up to approximately 200 and is slated for completion in early July.

“This is our big project for the year,” said Morelli.

“The hall is important to Warfield, it’s a gathering place for the people.”
