The Fanny Bay Community Association was incorporated and registered as a non-profit society on December 10, 1931, under the title Fanny Bay Athletic and Social Society. Through the past 9 decades it has morphed into the current energetic organization with over 200 members governed by an elected volunteer Board of Directors.
The constituted purposes of the Association are:
- To maintain a Community Centre, and manage the use of the facilities, so that they can be used on a first come, first served basis.
- To provide such other public amenities as may benefit the community.
- In furtherance of the charitable purpose, to obtain and manage the necessary finances, personnel and equipment to operate the facilities.
Our Community Hall, completed in December 1931, was built on land donated by pioneer, Abe McLauchlin, and constructed primarily with volunteer labour and a whole lot of donated materials. Thanks to the ongoing generosity of Fanny Bay residents, local service organizations and businesses, and grants from various charitable foundations and local and provincial governments, the Hall continues to act as the place in our community to congregate and fraternize with neighbours.
The FBCA Board would like to thank the Union Bay Credit Union for their pledge to match community donations for the Hall, up to $2,000. Their offer generated a huge amount of excitement, and at last count, we have received $2,535 in donations from the community. I recently received an email from Mark Jones, the CEO of UBCU, congratulating us on a very successful fundraiser. And this morning when I checked, I noticed that the UBCU Community Connect Program had just deposited $2,000 into our operating account! Thank you UBCU and the Fanny Bay community for supporting our beloved Community Hall!
