Vision Statement Navan
Navan Community Association
The Navan Community Association was formed to create a voice for the residents, with a greater impact, and a vision of making Navan a wonderful place to live.
The Navan Lions Club sponsored a public meeting in April 1996, which indicated a need and desire to form a Community Association.
With the guidance of Diane Huffman from the South Nation Conservation Office, by March 1997 progress was under way to create a constitution. Several Lions played a key role in the creation and sustaining of the organization.
The purpose of the forming of the Association was to:
- Empower the community to have a voice with governments
- Utlize community resources and business
- Build capacity
- Raise awareness and educate all ages
- Build a sense of pride
Regular meetings are held the 3rd Monday of every month at the Navan Memorial Centre Hall upstairs starting at 7:30.
November 12, 2001 the Association became incorporated.
NAVAN YOUTH DANCES
The June 14th Navan Youth Dance will be held in the Education Barn behind the arena.
BBQ hot dogs will be on sale for $1.00 each until 8pm (or until they are all eaten).
Wear your best country style outfit to the barn dance and practice your best country dance moves for your chance to win a prize.
June's special half time show will feature returning guest, singer Michelle Gravel.

Domes of Navan
The Cumberland Township Historical Society has recently produced a booklet telling the story of how the "Domes of Navan" found their way from LeBreton Flats to the Navan Fairgrounds back in 1984. Anyone who likes the Navan Fair (and let's face it that's just about everyone) will find this to be a nice read on a bit of local history from the mid 1980s, and a great gift idea for friends and relatives. You can pick up copies of these booklets at Bradley's Store or by calling Verna Cotton at 835-2490 or Ross Bradley at 835-2199. The price is $20 or 2 for $30.
A recent community outreach initiative was held at Heritage Public School by CHEO's Research Institute, Healthy Active Living and Obesity (HALO) Research Group. Navan's Charles Boyer was pleased to participate in the event as he was a student at Meadowview Public School throughout his elementary school years and is always proud to spread the word about the work that HALO is involved with.
