The funds were provided for heating upgrades to the Show Hall and matching funds from the PEI Department of Fisheries and Communities, Rural Development Division enabled the installation of heat pumps.
“At FCC, we applaud all Canadian non-profit groups that invest time and energy to support their fellow citizens,” said Sophie Perrault, FCC executive vice-president and chief operating officer. “Through the AgriSpirit Fund, FCC supports causes that contribute to a sense of community and helps improve the quality of life for rural residents. It’s one of the ways FCC gives back to the communities where our customers live and work”
The Souris Show Hall is the oldest continuously running theatre in PEI having been built in the late 1890s by the Benevolent Irish Society of Souris. In 2022 with the support of government and local sponsors the Show Hall hosted a slate of talented island performers, along with Open Mic nights that brought out local artists and a children’s play - Lobster in My Pocket adapted by Deirdre Kessler, the PEI author of the book.
The volunteer Board of the Foundation all share the belief that the Souris Show Hall is an important cultural icon and envision a year round cultural space which will enrich the lives of the residents of Souris and Eastern Kings.
The Foundation is in the process of finalizing the Souris SummerFest 2023 lineup and looks forward to continued community and government support.
The Souris Show Hall respectfully acknowledges that we are on unceded Mi'Kmaq territory.
