First, the Orange Hall is now more, it has been sold and will be a house now. I lived next door to it in 1988 and 1989. The loss of the hall means there is one less inexpensive place for non-profits to rent which is not good for building more social capital in our community. I know the building well and I have no idea how you retain the building and make a functional place to live.
Second, as part of the Aaron Hall Shaw TV series Delicious he went to the Cornerstone Cafe that is operated by Fernwood NRG and an important improvement to the neighbourhood.
