What is 99 years old and goes green every March 17th?

The answer is Coghlan Hall, one of Greater Langley’s historical treasures. It is going green in honour of St. Patricks day with a traditional Irish Céilí.

The Hall was built in 1920, and has had a number of upgrades over the years. The most recent interior upgrade was done as part of creating an “authentic” 1880’s hall for the movie Gunless. The Hall Committee liked the changes so much they asked the movie producers to leave them in place.

The Hall is managed and rented out for community and private events as well as for movies by an offshoot committee of the Aldergrove Fair and Festival Days Society.

Céilí Organizer Bob Long is excited about this years’ event. “It’s a fundraiser to help preserve the Hall so we’re looking forward to seeing all 100 tickets sold. The musical entertainment this year includes Shawn McKee, pipers, and a special dance performance by the Sionnaine Irish Dance Academy – and don’t forget you get Irish stew as well and it’s all for only $12. That’s an amazing deal,” concludes Long.

The date is Sunday 17th March from 3:30 pm to about 7:00 pm.
