A special thanks to our supporters/sponsors!
Woodslee Community Center began simply as an idea, an opportunity to build and strengthen our small rural community.
We treasure the past, live in the present and work for our future.
In December 2012, Save Woodslee Action Group (S.W.A.G.) was formed to gauge the will of the community to lease unused space at St. John the Evangelist Grade School. This would save our local school from closing and provide a much needed community center.
The support was overwhelming and as a result negotiations commenced immediately with the Winsor-Essex Catholic District School Board to reach a lease agreement. Subsequently the Woodslee Community Association (W.C.A.) was formed as a not-for-profit organization. In June 2013, the W.C.A. was successful in reaching a lease agreement with the School Board that would keep the school open and use the leased space as the newly formed Woodslee Community Center (W.C.C.)
Woodslee Community Center seeks to provide exciting, interesting, and affordable opportunities within our community to learn, play, and participate.
The board of directors along with all members of the Woodslee Community Association are united in their belief that our vibrant rural community continue to move forward in a healthy way. We endeavour to meet a variety of needs that include . . .

Everyone is invited to be a part of this special community.
