Like most small communities, the local hall plays a major role in maintaining a familiar lifestyle while dealing with a dwindling population.  For years the Cowan Community Centre has been the gathering place for weddings, funerals, auctions, meetings, celebrations, dances and whatever is important to those who call this village and surrounding area their home.

Community support has always been strong and volunteerism is very much at its finest as those with any particular training or ability freely offer their services when needed. But like all older facilities, much-needed repairs must be addressed to stay operational. The Community Foundation of Swan Valley is pleased to be part of maintaining this hall through a grant that will ensure the building will be brought up to code in the kitchen and bathrooms areas.
