How We Began

Woodslee Community Center

The Woodslee Community Center began simply from an idea, an opportunity to build and strengthen our small rural community.

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 Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board to reach a lease agreement. Subsequently, the Woodslee Community Association (WCA) was formed as a non-profit organization. In June 2013, the Woodslee Community Association 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 (WCC)
