P4- Support Improvements to Toquet Hall

Toquet Hall is an important destination for teens in Downtown, where they can initiate and participate in social, cultural, recreational, and educational activities.  The current space and location limits Toquet Hall's activities and hours.  Therefore, a plan to renovate and improve the existing space is being developed.  The proposal includes expanding the snack bar's offerings, making soundproofing and acoustical improvements, and enhancing the signage.  Funds for the renovations will be raised through gofundme, a crowdfunding website.  www.gofundme.com/toquethall, as well as planned fundraisers. The first step in the renovation will be the addition of a sign on the Post Road side of the building in order to increase awareness of the space. 

  • Funds were raised from various fundraising efforts throughout the year. In April 2017, the "gym" style flooring to help dampen sound traveling to the store below were ordered and installed. In addition, a new sign was designed and hung to improve Toquet Hall's visibility.  
  • In early 2017, Toquet Hall applied for a grant from the Woman's Club to obtain funds for the proposed snack bar expansion.
