The grant will support important structural work. Built in 1885, Memorial Hall served as the centerpiece of social life for Calais and neighboring towns for generations. The Hall, the Veterans Monument, and its spectacular lake setting was an active venue for weddings, memorial services, community suppers, graduation parties, historical society meetings, and many other events. The structural work will enable the community to re-open this important gathering place to the public and add an economic driver to this rural area.
