WY ACT (Warkworth Youth Actively Contributing Together)
The club supports and sponsors WY ACT. It was developed in 2022 by Trish and Brian Wood (both retired teachers) as well as Danielle Gagnon, club president. WY ACT creates inclusive opportunities for local youth to actively make positive contributions to our Warkworth community, while at the same time seeking platforms which allow youth voices to be heard. WY ACT is for students who live in the Warkworth area and are in Grades 6, 7 & 8. Some of the WY ACT activities include a Hallowe’en Monster Mash Community Party, an Easter Eggstravanza Community Party, collecting food donations with Sleigh Local Hunger, making Christmas and Valentine cards for seniors, operating the drinks booth at the Maple Syrup Festival and helping the club with the Canada Day celebrations. The youth and club supervisors meet twice a month after school at the Warkworth Public Library.
Warkworth Guiding involves girls from ages 5 to 15. They meet weekly in four different age units. They are a big help during the Donnybrook and during the Maple Syrup Festival.
We help this large organization by defraying part of the cost of registration for the children as well as the cost of jerseys.
The club annually sponsors a soccer team.

A lovely walkway along the creek was built and is regularly improved by the club. It begins at the bridge at the foot of Main Street.
In harmony with the Millennium Trail, trees are planted in areas along the route and designated as memorials to members of the club who have passed away.
The Medical Centre was build in 1973 by the club who also maintains and manages It. It houses two general practice doctors, a dentist, and a massage therapist.
The old Town Hall (now the Centre for the Arts) and Library (now the Heritage Centre) are owned by the municipality but the club regularly helps with the maintenance and improvement of these important heritage buildings.
A covered stage area was built in 2005 by the club in Mill Park in the heart of the village. It is available to anyone for open air concerts and shows.
The club purchased the old Warkworth fire truck in 1998. The club maintains it and use it as the club entry in local parades and events. It helps to raise the club profile and it keeps a bit of our community history in the foreground.
With the local Legion Branch 380, we sponsor weekly, free public skating at the Percy Arena.
The club regularly donates funds for the upgrading of the area: downtown improvements, festive lighting, building maintenance, etc.
Mill Park Path
A path from the roadway at Old Hastings Road that runs through the park to the pavilion was completed in 2009 with club funds.
The Medical Centre was built in 1973. The project leader was the Service Club which worked with local and provincial governments to get it built. Many local residents and businesses were instrumental in supporting this project. The Medical Centre Committee looks after renting the offices and the maintenance, repairs and upgrading of the facility.
Two family doctors, a dentist and a Registered Massage Therapist have practices in the Medical Centre.
