Christmas Tree Lighting
The annual Christmas tree lighting was another success this year. The weather cooperated and about 50-60 community members showed up to enjoy the event. Even Santa stopped by in a brightly light fire truck! Thank-you to the volunteers who made this a great success again this year.
Call for Interest: Pickleball/Badminton Court at the Community Center
We are gauging community interest in the possibility of constructing a Pickleball/Badminton Court on the grounds of the Center. These are some of the facts and benefits:
- Fun, easy to learn and low impact.
- Great way to meet community members and make friends.
- Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in the world.
- Badminton is played at most Intermediate and High Schools on the Island.
Even if you prefer not to participate in these activities, it would create an opportunity to “come down and watch” and socialize.
Please send your input or expression of interest to email@example.com
Play cribbage with your neighbors, every Thursday at 730pm. Cost is $5, 50/50 draw and prizes. Pop, coffee, tea and candy bars are available for purchase.
Thank-you to all the Volunteers who volunteers at the center for
cards, Halloween, Christmas, grass cutting, snow blowing etc. Your time and effort is
appreciated! If you are interested in volunteering for an event or getting involved with the
board please contact one of the board members to discuss.

AED at the Center
The Community Center has installed an automated external defibrillator (AED). It’s an easy-to-use, medical device that can analyze the heart’s rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock(defibrillation) to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm. The device is on the wall in the entrance of the Center and can be accessed by persons with a door entry or through a call to 911 (the AED is registered with 911 and EMS. They can provide a door code for emergency access if the AED is needed).
