The HeRMItage

The HeRMItage Community Centre is the social gathering place for Retirement Miramichi residents. All residents have access to the centre and may use it for private events or to host an event of their choice for the community.

hermitageRetirement Miramichi Inc. provides the building and maintenance. The activities and events that happen within the centre are organized by the Hermitage Social Committee. Their efforts have led to many residents of Retirement Miramichi getting involved not only in our village but in the greater community as well. They also produce the Hermitage News, a monthly newsletter that goes out to all residents within the village and hold regular drives to donate clothing, furniture, and household supplies to local charities such as Miramichi Transition House.

Tenants are welcome to participate in the existing events or start their own. The HeRMItage has been home to as many as 10 clubs and groups who meet on a regular basis; the Arts & Crafts Club, Canasta Club, Cards & Games, Chess Club, Crochet & Knitting Club, Exercise Club, Hermitage Dart Club, Horseshoe Club, Meet & Greet Committee and the RM Safety Committee.

Each fall Retirement Miramichi hosts an annual Meet and Greet for the tenants but this has outgrown the Hermitage. Summer brings the Strawberry Social in July and in August there is a Meet & Greet Corn Boil at the centre so everybody can get out and meet their neighbours, old and new.
