About the Centre


The Vernonville Community Centre was built in 1862 to replace the old log school house east of St. George Street.
The new location served as a school house for decades until it was closed in 1966.
 

The next year the surrounding community joined efforts and purchased the building to stand as a community centre.
A local committee operated the community centre until the mid-1990s when it was handed over to the township.
 

In 1999 a few of the Vernonville villagers went back to council and asked if a local committee could once again take over
operations of the hall. Since then the hall has been open year round.
 

The centre hosts euchre every second and fourth Friday of the month(only the second Friday in December). The hall has been rented
for bridal showers, baby showers, anniversaries, family reunions, birthday parties, small weddings, Christmas dinners, church functions, and funerals.
 

More volunteers are always welcomed and appreciated.
