Welcome to Shirley, BC
We are a non-profit organization which owns, operates, and maintains the Shirley Community Hall and Pioneer Park for the benefit of residents and visitors to the area.
Shirley Day in August is our main annual affair, attracting about 300 people with local food and music, children’s events, and a slew of vendors and crafters. We also feature a Craft Fair in spring and fall, and a neighbourhood Christmas event. In addition, Pioneer Park is the site of a Sunday market (to be held on July 1, August 5 and September 2 in 2018).
Our operations are financed through membership fees, event functions, hall rentals, lease rentals, and grants. General meetings are held every two months, beginning in January, for members to plan events and to raise any concerns. Both residents and non-residents are welcome to join.
The association has come a long way since it was established in 1934. We have expanded the Community Hall, created the site of Pioneer Park, and added two other buildings on our two-acre property. The Shirley Volunteer Fire Department is now based in the building adjacent to the Hall. We also provide emergency shelter in case of disaster.
