OPENING & DEDICATION

Join us on Saturday, May 5th at 10:00am at the Woodville Community Centre to celebrate the completion of the new upstairs meeting room and the 450 square foot addition to our fitness room.

 

Our fine Community Centre is now 75 years old and was originally built as a school in 1942-43 to replace a smaller school that had just burnt on the same location. School classes were held in this building until 1970, and in 1972 it was purchased (given) to Woodville by the County of Kings, and used as our Community Centre since then.

 

Various structural improvements and facilities have been incorporated into the original building since it became a Community Centre 45 years ago. Some of the more recent changes are; main lobby & elevator (2000), new playground equipment (2007), fitness centre (2009-2010), generator, kitchen/washroom improvements, emergency comfort station (2012), new upstairs windows/blinds & heat pumps (2015), plus this latest building expansion that was completed in March.

 

George Foote who passed away a few weeks ago, had been president of the Woodville Community Centre for 30 plus years. He was the initiator, motivator, or one of the volunteer workers on many of these Community Centre improvements and the various social, recreational, fitness or fundraising events that the Woodville Community Centre hosts. In recognition of George’s long-term community leadership and his various contributions the Woodville Community Centre will dedicate this new upper level meeting room in his honour on May 5th and call this gathering area “George’s Room”. George’s community spirit and leadership will long be remembered!

Lieutenant Governor's Community Spirit Award

CSA

The Lieutenant Governor’s Community Spirit Award was presented to Woodville, by the Honourable Mayann E. Francis, Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia on July 24, 2011 at the annual Woodville Garden Party. The Lieutenant Governor’s Community Spirit Award was created in 2007 to recognize and celebrate communities throughout Nova Scotia that demonstrate a high level of pride and citizen participation and the community’s unique strengths.

 

Each Lieutenant Governor's Community Spirit Award is unique.

 

The skilled artisans at Nova Scotia Crystal seek to capture the essence of each winning community. For Woodville, it is the spirit of leadership that began so many years ago and it acts as a role model for others within the community.

 

You will see a large cut through the crystal that represents the continuing leadership. Smaller ones are for the younger generations coming forward to carry on the leadership values they have been taught.

 

Around the base there are another 40 cuts in honour of the 40th anniversary of the Woodville Chicken Bar-b-que!
