The Midway Community Association (MCA – formerly known as the Midway Community Club) held their annual general meeting on April 6, 2014.

For the coming year the Chair is Janice Lucas, Vice-Chair Cat Kappes, Treasurer is Catherine Stewart and the Secretary position is now held by Jenny Simmonds.

Kappes said the possibility of sponsoring a Welcome Wagon for Midway has been brought up by a couple of association members and Catherine Stewart volunteered to investigate options and report back to the next meeting.

The association will sponsor a dance on June 7 (postponed from May 24).

The magician they hired to come to the village last summer may be available to provide a show during Kettle River Days as a fundraiser for the MCA. The magician would work the Kettle River Day crowd at Riverfront Park and then come to the Community Hall for an in-house show available by admission.

The Midway and Beyond Little Theatre Group has been working hard to source grants to develop and equip the Midway Community Hall for use as a theatre. It is hoped they can mount their first production in September or October.

Sound, lighting and curtains are coming together thanks to a $1,000 grant-in-aid from Area E, $5,000 for electrical work and curtains from the village, $350 from Dr. Eddie Naude and $2,990 from the Midway Partnership Fund.

Theatre director John Hibberson is pursuing other grant opportunities including the purchase of a portable stage system that might be made possible with funding from a Saskatchewan source and additional funding for lights from the Phoenix Foundation of the Boundary Communities.
