Biographical history

The North Hatley Community Centre, known as the North Hatley Community Club until the 1980s, was first organized in 1932 and had become incorporated by 1937. When first established, the mandate of the Community Club was to raise funds to remodel the ground floor of the village's town hall so that it may be used as a community centre, which the group would then be responsible for its maintenance and management. This community club building was kept up until a terrible fire completely destroyed the building on July 9, 1974. After this, the members of the North Hatley Community Centre worked hard to acquire and refurbish the former Catholic School as the new location of the community centre, which was being used as the town's Maintenance Building at that time. Administered by a board of directors, the North Hatley Community Centre Board members consists of representatives from various groups who are required to pay an annual fee for membership in the Community Centre, which allows them regular use of the facitility. Throughout its long existence, the North Hatley Community Centre has remained dedicated to their mission and have largely depended on their extensive fundraising activities, such as raffles and suppers, to maintain the building as an available place to groups and individuals in the community to use.
