Grenville Centre turns 30!

Built at a cost of ½ million dollars, as a focal point for the 50 plus age group.  Council received a grant from the Commonwealth Government towards the cost. 
The iinitiative for the centre came from the community.  The senior citizens have worked very hard to raise money to buy furniture and equipment.  The Lions club donated $10,000.

On the 30th of May 1983, the Grenville Centre was opened by Sir Donald Dunstan, Governor of South Australia. Local resident and author, Max Fatchen read his poem "Ode to Elizabeth" at the opening, the City of Elizabeth Brass band entertain guests and then Sir Donald turned the key to open the new facilities.

The Grenville Community Connections Hub as it now called is a vibrant and welcoming centre bringing people together in the spirit of friendship and shared interests.

The Hub is provides services that promote healthy ageing and support community connections.
