Community Center Highlights
May 10th, 2021 – email@example.com.
AED AT THE CENTER
The North Granville Community Center has purchased and installed an automated external defibrillator (AED). It’s an easy to use medical device tht can analyze the heart’s rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shockk (defibrillation) to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm. You may have seen the AED sign on the side of the Center.
This device provides members of the Center or in the community the chance to save a life before EMS arrives. The device is on the wall in the entrance of the Center and can be accessed bby persons with a door entry or through a call to 911 ( the AED is registered with 911 and EMS as a local resource and they can provide a door code for emergency access if they determine the AED is needed.

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 set up their office location in the basement of the Center 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.
