The Tapply-Thompson Community Center program began in 1946 through the vision and hard work of A.B. Thompson and “Wink” Tapply. It has been enjoyed by thousands of people in the Newfound Lake area ever since. The program was built on the philosophy that, “If one life is influenced for the good, it is money well spent”. We are one of the only not-for-profit Recreation Centers in the State of New Hampshire and rely heavily on our community volunteers and donors to continue to meet the needs of our youth and adults. We recognize that our Community Center needs to go beyond simply providing a place that keeps kids safe and off of the streets. The TTCC has been designed to help youth develop life skills that will enable them to grow into productive adults with a strong sense of volunteerism.
