Community Service

In October 2023, Center of the World was once again a Gold-level sponsor of Run to the Center of the World, which raised more than $4,000 for the New Troy Community Center.

Over the past 17 years, owners Terry and Lorraine together with Center of the World staff, have volunteered hundreds of hours of service for the Community Center, which provides an under-privileged community with a multitude of services: lending library, activities room with games, free food pantry, story hour, Little Free Library, pickleball, yoga, local history museum, playground, demonstration rain garden, winter coat drive, visits with Santa, free adult enrichment programs, and much more.

Owned, maintained and operated by the non-profit organization, Friends of New Troy, the Center receives no tax dollars, but has been supported since 2007 by fundraisers, donations, membership fees, and more recently, grants.

In 2019, Terry and Lorraine joined forces with Rotarian David Stevenson to write grants to rehab the Center's four restrooms. Built in 1962 as an elementary school, the Center's bathrooms had never been upgraded. Four grants came through, multiple fundraisers were held, and the bathroom rehab was completed in the spring/summer of 2020.
