Lake Toxaway Community Center

Congratulations to Lake Toxaway Community Center on its award from the WNC Communities as a "Community of Promise." On Saturday, Nov. 2, six members of the Lake Community Center volunteer group attended the 70th Annual WNC Communities Award Banquet in Asheville. The Community Center was very fortunate to win the award as a "Community of Promise" and a check for $1,000. The award was given for the hard work (and many volunteer hours) on the Friday evening dinners, the great work on the walking track and other efforts done throughout the year on the community center for the Lake Toxaway community. Thank you to all who have attended our Friday night events. We appreciate your support throughout the year. The Friday night dinners will be taking a winter break. Check out the Community Center Facebook page and website for the 2020 Schedule.

We have added a new section – history – to our website at http://www.toxaway We are hoping to add to it, but we need your help in putting together stories or information you may have about the early days of the community center. You can contact us through the contact section of the website, or leave a message at 966-4060 and we will contact you. If you wish to share any older photos, we can include those as well.
