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.
On June 30th, the Union Bay Credit Union pledged to match community donations to the Fanny Bay Community Hall, up to $2,000. By July 5th, the members of our small community had donated $2,158, resulting in $4,158 of revenue for the Hall!
If you didn’t get a chance to contribute but would like to, we are still accepting donations, even though they won’t be matched by UBCU.

For those who have already opened their hearts and their pocketbooks, a huge thank you for showing your community spirit and supporting our Hall!
