Building a community, one neighbor at a time

New Troy’s Community Center is the achievement of a group of committed people pulling together. Called Friends of New Troy (FONT), this non-profit organization relies entirely on donations, fund-raisers, and volunteers to keep the Community Center afloat.

Located in New Troy’s former elementary school, the Community Center is adjacent to Weesaw Township Park. Together, the two properties form the nucleus of New Troy and a resource that any town would be proud to call its own.

The Community Center houses a Book Room that features more than 4,000 titles, computers with DSL Internet service, wi-fi, and children’s reading programs.

The Center is also home to a playground and sledding hill; a collection of local historical memorabilia; and an outdoor Memorial Garden that features bricks and benches inscribed with names of supporters and New Troy alumni. We host indoor winter flea markets, a Christmas program, and community enrichment and assistance programs. Work was begun on a nature trail and rain garden in 2011.

If you’re looking for a location for a special event or meeting, consider renting our Community Room (formerly the gymnasium), kitchen, or Meeting Room.

The Community Center also provides facilities to several tenants —  Renny Mills Photography and Pet Photography, and Spiritualist Circle of Light Church.

Please browse our website, stop into the Community Center for a visit, and consider supporting us in any way you can.
