The Murray Memorial Centre is owned and maintained by the Community Association of Georgeville (CAG). The building was originally constructed in 1934 to serve as a school for the Village and surrounding communities. Following the consolidation of schools in rural districts, the school was closed in 1960 and the building donated by the Murray family to the CAG. The interior of the building was remodelled by the Association to provide a well-equipped kitchen and a large hall for public meetings and functions.

Today, the Murray Memorial Centre is the site of many community activities, including the spring sugaring-off, the Canada Day softball game, the summer children’s Recreation Program, the occasional Street Dance, and the Labour Day softball game and corn boil. The Centre is also the site for the Georgeville Nature and Ski (GNS) annual Ski Dinner, as well as performances by the Georgeville Troupe. Upcoming events are advertised on two separate bulletin boards (one in front of the Murray Memorial Centre, and the other – the ‘Village Crier’ — by the tennis courts). Upcoming events are also listed on the CAG website.

The Centre also hosts a number of other activities organized by different individuals and groups including: Neighbours’ Lunches, Men’s Breakfasts, the bridge club, yoga and line dancing lessons, Magoon Point Fish and Game Club.
