Volunteers work to revive Weare’s Osborne Memorial Hall
“It went very well,” said Betts. “We’re really pleased to see the building being used. It has taken a lot to get it to this stage.”
One of the first orders of business was clearing out the basement of the building that held the bathrooms and a kitchen, but also had a crumbling cement floor and other problems. The two bathrooms were moved upstairs, the kitchen and floor were torn out, and a new floor installed.There’s a handicapped-accessible ramp, new windows, siding, septic and electrical systems, and all manner of improvements made to the building. But it’s still only good for part of the year because the building lacks heating and insulation.“We’ve had the insulation donated to us,” said Betts, “but we’re trying to raise money for furnaces.”
One of the goals for the building is to be able to rent it out for weddings, parties and other private functions so that it’s used the way those earlier Weare residents who contributed to its construction intended.
“We’re hoping to host games once a month, as long as it’s warm enough,” he said.For rental information and other details, Betts can be reached at 529-7282.
