RECREATION AND THE COMMUNITY

THE HALL RENOVATIONS INCLUDED NEW WINDOWS, LED LIGHTING UPGRADES AND AN ACCESSIBLE FRONT DOOR!
The Chamberlain Recreation Committee is a small hard working group, who put on a few events during the year to help raise money for the hall and to be able to provide events for the community. One of the more recent undertakings was buying and installing playground equipment at the hall. As was mentioned, it is a small group who are always looking for new members. The committee will welcome with open arms anyone who is willing to come out, has new ideas, and is willing to work. If you would like more information, please call the Chamberlain Township Office at 705-544-8088.
The Chamberlain Recreation Committee meets on the second Tuesday of each month (except June, July and August) at 1:00 p.m. at the Chamberlain Township Hall, please use the back entrance.
