News Summary

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, troutriverec@gmail.com, or find them on Facebook @Trout River Environmental Committee.
