About The Community Center
The Y is the leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community by empowering young people, improving the health and well-being of people of all ages, and inspiring action in and across communities.
Fairmont Youth Hockey will be relocated to the new ice rink housed in the Community Center. In addition to hockey, recreational skating, broomball, curling and other ice activities will be open to the community.
Fairmont is continuing to expand offerings and be a place where people choose to live, work, and visit. Together, we’re taking bold steps to revitalize our community, boost the economy, and serve those in our community.
