48th Annual Woodville Chicken Barbeque

You can be sure that spring is coming when you hear talk of the Annual Chicken Barbeque.


The Barbeque is our biggest fundraiser and supports the maintenance of the building and the programs that we carry out through the year. Please mark Sunday, June 2nd on your calendar for this year’s barbeque.


The barbeque work schedule can be found here. Please take a moment to review your scheduled time. If you are unable to work your schedule time please let Alice know as soon as possible. If your name is not on the schedule and you are available we are always happy to have more help. The schedule will also be posted in our May newsletter.


If you are not available to help on that day there are always before and after jobs that need to be done.


It is an event that takes lots of planning and hard work but our community spirit is very evident that day.



"Community Tree" Fundraiser

The Woodville Community Centre has an exciting new fundraiser for the community, but it is much more than just a fundraiser.


It is a piece of art that will highlight our history with the apple industry in the community. Sheila Mason, a local artist, has painted a beautiful apple tree on the wall in the upper lobby of the Community Centre.


We invite you to purchase one of the red wooden apples for $25 that will then be placed on the tree. You have the option of writing on the apple yourself or having it written for you.


To purchase an apple contact Alice: Email: vanhattemalice@gmai.com or Phone: (902) 678-3928







Lieutenant Governor's Community Spirit Award


The Lieutenant Governor’s Community Spirit Award was presented to Woodville, by the Honourable Mayann E. Francis, Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia on July 24, 2011 at the annual Woodville Garden Party. The Lieutenant Governor’s Community Spirit Award was created in 2007 to recognize and celebrate communities throughout Nova Scotia that demonstrate a high level of pride and citizen participation and the community’s unique strengths.


Each Lieutenant Governor's Community Spirit Award is unique.


The skilled artisans at Nova Scotia Crystal seek to capture the essence of each winning community. For Woodville, it is the spirit of leadership that began so many years ago and it acts as a role model for others within the community.


You will see a large cut through the crystal that represents the continuing leadership. Smaller ones are for the younger generations coming forward to carry on the leadership values they have been taught.


Around the base there are another 40 cuts in honour of the 40th anniversary of the Woodville Chicken Bar-b-que!
