Raise the Roof

By: Heather @ 11:24 am

Westmount Moving was proud to be a major sponsor of the Raise the Roof! Fundraiser on August 24th , 2012 to raise money for a new roof on the Ormstown Fairground Arena.

The arena was built in 1912 and was designed to host a variety of events. Its current major use is during the Ormstown Fair.  The building can be used for other events, however, the poor condition of the roof prevents some groups from renting it due to the leaks.

On August 24th, the Beatles tribute band Day Tripper rocked the fairgrounds and brought the entire community together in a fun way to contribute towards the roof repair.  It was a great night and a very successful event.  Joe Gagnon, who grew up in the Chateauguay Valley, has fond memories of the Ormstown Fair, which was (and still is) an event not to be missed in the area and wanted to do his part in preserving this important local landmark.
