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 it they wanted to rebuild or simply cease operations, the community gathered and gave a unanimous thumb's 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.
