CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING, November 30, 6:30 PM
Hope to see you at the annual community Christmas gathering for the young and young at heart. This is a great opportunity to wish community members and neighbours a happy holiday.
COMMUNITY POTLUCK AT THE CENTER ***Moving to an early spring time***
The community potluck supper at the Center will be moving to a early spring timing. We have looked at the timing of this event and concluded that the fall/early winter schedule is busy and we would look to making extra effort to encourage participation with a change in timing.
This is a good opportunity to meet and mingle with your neighbours and newcomers to the community. We encourage all newcomers to the community to attend as this is a great opportunity for you to meet people in the community, we do a round of introductions at the start of the meal.
If you have any questions please contact Don Maynard 886-2071 or Sahra Courtney 886-2002. Look for further information in future update.

BOOKING COMMUNITY CENTER and ACCESS CODES TO THE CENTER
Bookings are being taken by Kellie Saarloos at 886-2886 to hold family events or other uses at the Center. To ensure everyone’s responsibilities are clear we have a simple but clear contract for users to sign. Our objective is to have the center open, accessible and welcoming for community use.
There is a keypad lock system at the Center. This lock system has the capacity to track when specific key codes are used to open the door. This lock system replaces the need for keys to be copied and signed out, especially for those that wanted to use the exercise equipment regularly at the Center (there never seemed to be enough keys). Thus, we are encouraging any community members who wish to have access to the exercise equipment(on a first come first serve basis), to contact Kellie and she will get you to sign out an access number that is assigned to you and can be tracked by the lock system when used. Please note, we do have additional security lighting for the door so as people can get easy access.
EXERCISE EQUIPMENT – TWO TREADMILLS AND TWO RECUMBENT BICYCLES
Two treadmills, two recumbent bicycles and an assortment of loose exercise equipment is available for use on a first come first serve basis during the day or evenings. There is no cost for using the equipment. A key code can be obtained from Kellie Saarloos by contacting her at 886-2886 so you can come and go as you please.
COMMUNITY CENTER is on Facebook.
The North Granville Center now has a page on Facebook at @ Community of North Granville. We look for this page to help get info out and receive input for the Center.
TROUT RIVER ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITTEE at the COMMUNITY CENTER
The North Granville Community Center and the Trout River Environmental Committee (TREC) have worked collaboratively in the North Granville area for many years. The TREC staff have set up their office location in the basement of the Center and operated out of there this summer. TREC has also moved a small storage shed to the property. This is a mutual support arrangement for the Center where TREC is contributing to the Center operating costs.
TREC is now seeking corporate sponsors and memberships for their worthy projects and operations. You can contact the TREC Director at 902-213-9340, firstname.lastname@example.org, or find them on Facebook @Trout River Environmental Committee.
Check our Events page for all the center news.
Many thanks to all the volunteers that are providing support by taking their turn to cut the grass, open the Center and that have and continue to provide service on Thursday night card play.
