Description & Services
The Paradise Community Hall has been the site of many activities, community suppers, dances, meetings and receptions. We are proud that this facility continues to be a vital part of our community. 
In 1936 a beautiful community hall was built in Paradise. A generous bequest of $1,000.00 by Mr. Thomas Porter, a native of Paradise, together with a donation of $1,000.00 by William Inglis Morse of Cambridge, Massachusetts, U.S.A., also a native of Paradise, plus numerous pledges of material and labour by community-minded citizens made the dream of a community hall a reality.  
For some reason the original site chosen, in front of the Paradise Fruit Company, was not used. Instead, the little store and ice-cream parlour, originally built by Mr. John Sproule and subsequently owned by Mr. Reginald Durling, was purchased and torn down to make way for the construction of the new hall.  
The first trustees were Fred W. Bishop, J. C. Phinney, A.C. Freeman, Ewart G. Morse, and Kenneth M. Brooks. Upon completion of the Hall, a committee was appointed from the Paradise Women's Institute to work with the trustees in providing the furnishings. The Institute donated a piano, curtains, and dishes, and had a sign painted and placed on the outside of the building.  
The requirements of the Community Hall are still top priority for the members of the Institute and the whole community is justly proud of this facility. 
The objectives of the Society are: 
(a) To promote any charitable, social, artistic, recreational, educational, or any other useful objective; 
(b) To promote community spirit and togetherness.
