Community Center activites during Covid
In an effort to keep our community safe and follow the provincial guidelines events at the community center are on hold or being done differently. Please see below for details on various events.
We are investigating the possibility of restarting card night in January. At the moment we are assessing the logistics of meeting provincial guidelines and gauging community interest. Please feel free to reach out to us if you are interested in card night at the center resuming.
Christmas Tree Lighting
The Come join us to celebrate “North Granville’s 2nd Annual Tree Lighting!”. Held on Dec 3rd at 6:30pm we will social distance outside the community center to kick off the Christmas season!!! This tree represents our community spirit as the lights twinkle to brighten these days of uncertainty this year! We encourage all ages … no soul is ever too young or old to enjoy Christmas lights, a song and prayer.
🙏 Please note this is an outdoor time condensed celebration. Santa is playing it safe and isolating in the North Pole, but hoping he will join us next year! A little bag of Christmas Cheer will be handed out in lieu of Santa’s absence this year. Storm Date is Dec 10th 6:30pm. Any questions or concerns please message Jessica at 902-888-9307.
Internet at the Center
In the next couple of weeks the Center will be connected to Red Sands Internet service. With Red Sands now providing an internet service option in North Granville, Red Sands will be providing this service to the Center at no charge as part of the company’s local community support program. The Center will be purchasing a Wi-Fi router to install in the Center that will be able to provide emergency internet signal (should there be events like a lock down) for people that want to park in the Center driveway to gain internet access. More details in the next Newsletter.
A safe and happy holiday season to all our community members
The outdoor Halloween drive up was a huge success! Thank-you to all the community members who dropped off treats and/or volunteered.
Unfortunately we cannot meet the provincial requirements to accommodate center rentals. At this time, no rental bookings are being accepted.
The use of the gym equipment is also prohibited as we do not have the resources to ensure sanitization between use.

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, email@example.com, or find them on Facebook @Trout River Environmental Committee.
