Welcome to the Rankin Culture & Recreation Centre
The 'Centre' has been around for many years under various forms. In fact, the original was built in 1963. Unfortunately, the 'Rink' as it's known to most now, burned in a fire on March 15, 2005. This was a great loss for our entire community and surrounding area. When asked if they wanted to rebuild or simply cease operations, the community gathered and gave a unanimous thumbs up to rebuild. And that's what we've done! Everyone agrees that the new Rankin Culture & Recreation Centre is BIGGER AND BETTER!!
If you are interested in supporting our new Centre with a donation, you can find more information on our volunteer & donate page. For information on our next monthly meeting, please visit events & programs page or you can view/download our monthly newsletter here.
Community Fund for Canada’s 150th
The RCRC was successful in receiving a $600 grant in honor of Canada's 150th birthday. This initiative is made possible by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between the Pembroke Petawawa District Community Foundation, Community Foundations of Canada, the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast.

New Outdoor Rink
Our outdoor rink is now closed for the year. We apologize for the short season.
We are half way to our goal of paying off our brand new outdoor rink. If you are able to donate to our cause, you can do so online here.
