Township provides use of theatre for Drayton Rotary Club talent show

Mapleton council has agreed to allow the Drayton Rotary Club use of the Drayton Festival Theatre for a talent show on Dec. 6.

An agreement with Drayton Entertainment, which operates the municipally-owned theatre, includes as limited number of dates for the township use of the facility.

“The theatre has confirmed with township staff that the theatre is available for the Rotary Club’s use in December,” noted CAO Patty Sinnamon in a report to council at the Oct. 14 meeting. “Liability insurance coverage is required naming Drayton Entertainment as an additional insured party. The Township of Mapleton will be named as well.”

The Rotary Club is looking for area residents with creative and entertaining acts to participate in the show, which will be a fundraiser for the club’s proposed splash pad project.
