|Description & Services|
The Melvern Square Community Centre opened in September 1959 as a five-room schoolhouse encompassing 7,040 square feet. The building was vacated as an elementary school in 1988 and the responsibility for maintenance was transferred to Melvern Square & Area Community Association.
The Association established its mandate “to promote the use of community properties and facilities for purposes of recreation, culture, education and projects of community interest for the benefit of the residents of Melvern Square and surroundings areas”. The Association serves a diverse population made up of families in the agricultural, military, educational and service sectors. It is very important for area residents to spend time together in order that a true sense of belonging to a community is established. Recreational facilities are a wonderful venue to meet our neighbours and share the notion that we are living in a community immensely rich in human and natural resources.
The Community Centre is the focal point for social gatherings throughout the year as well as daily and weekly activities with the rental of the rooms. Nearly everyone in the community has spent many happy hours at the Centre, and has offered their time and money to keep it operating. It has been a large task to keep the Centre open, but it has truly been a labour of love. Many of our elder residents attended school there, and their children and grandchildren still enjoy using the building to this day!
