Our Story.. behind the run

Why should you care about the Center?

 

In 2004, a handful of residents formed Friends of New Troy to purchase the abandoned elementary school property. We had an ambitious vision: the rebirth of our community.

 

Today, the New Troy Community Center houses a free lending library with WiFi, computers, thousands of books, and kids’ reading programs. An outdoor classroom, nature trail, and demonstration rain garden have been constructed. We organize recycling, coat drives, winter flea markets, local history sessions, and Christmas programs. We host Mobile Food Pantries, candidate forums, and Weight Loss Challenges, and provide free use of the facility for residents’ memorial services. Adult enrichment opportunities include yoga, tai chi, and pickleball. Adolescents benefit from free hunter safety classes.

 

We also transfered eight acres of beautiful land adjacent to the Center to the township — at an incredibly low price — creating the Weesaw Township Park.

 

We do all this with NO government funding. Our Center is supported entirely through memberships, donations, and fund-raising events such as this race.

 

ALL volunteers!  NO tax dollars!

 

We are "Building a community, one neighbor at a time."
