Thank you very much for your comments!

 

As a new resident of Irishtown (2009), I have noticed that the community is growing. New houses and subdivisions are being built and what better way to get to know our fellow citizens by having OUR Community Centre!

“It is an excellent facility for MANY different types of activities to be held in as well as the surrounding grounds for outdoor activities such as dog agility trials, baseball, soccer, etc.  People from all across the Maritimes come to our dog trials every summer and love the Irishtown grounds the best; location, hospitality, convenience, right off the highway, close to restaurants, hotels and gas stations.”

The Irishtown Community Centre is valuable in our community because it is the center of the Community.  The center is great for all kinds of events and bringing people together.  The kids enjoy the activities, and as parents we definitely appreciate to have a center in our community. Thanks to all the volunteers bringing events to the center!

The Irishtown Community Centre is valuable in our community because it is a wonderful way of getting to know your neighbors within the community and creating a safe environment for our children. By developing programs and events suited for the general public, the community will be sure to grow together.

The Irishtown Community Centre is valuable in our community because the community and surrounding residents need a central location to be available for important events and activities.
Recently, we attended the “Shale Gas Mining/Fracking” presentation at the Irishtown Community Centre. We had been searching for information sessions near us and also trying to find the anti-shale mining signs to install on our property. Several of our interested neighbours and friends joined us, to also be better informed on the issue. Thankfully, the community centre was organized and available to host the sessions! It was well organized and helpful information! The presenters were professional and well prepared, with documentation to back up their presentation. Well worth while attending! The event also gave us an opportunity to renew our Irishtown Community Centre membership for 2012 as well.
Thank you.

“The centre is a good venue for wedding receptions, dances and local clubs. It is a central place to hold provincial and federal elections. The importance of this building is that it is a place to gather and hold meetings, no matter what the reason. It is important to the community that this beautiful building be available.”

 “It is the only place available for friends and families to celebrate when a house is not big enough! It is at the heart of our community to use and enjoy! We have this facility and we should be so proud of it!”
 “C’est le seul endroit disponible où famille et amis peuvent célébrer quand une maison, ce n’est pas suffisant! C’est au coeur de notre communauté afin de s’en servir et d’y avoir du fun! Nous avons cet endroit et devrions en être très fiers!”
