Description & Services
Information The River Bourgeois Community Hall was built in 1978 to replace the old parish hall that was in desperate need of repairs. 
Over the years the Community Center has been expanded and renovated – all projects of the River Bourgeois Community Services Society. The hall was renamed the Tara Lynne Community Center in 1995 in memory of Tara Lynne Touesnard, a nationally known violinist from River Bourgeois. Tara Lynne performed at many of our local concerts and was well know for her dedication to music and her community. Tara Lynne died in a motor vehicle accident in April 1994 at the age of 21. 
During 2002 a spacious (20’ x 60’) outdoor deck was added to the Tara Lynne Community Hall with financial aid from Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation. 
Seniors Club 
Exercise gym is located in the basement and is available to any member. 
Main floor can be rented for meetings, senior’s birthdays, and anniversaries. No alcohol is permitted. 
In May, 2003 the River Bourgeois Seniors 50 + Club initiated the first Richmond County Expo at the Tara Lynne Center. It is a two-day event held yearly and it is strictly for the benefit of the seniors. The Seniors 50+ Club ran the Expo for 5 years. The Expo is now organized by the Municipality of Richmond. The seniors group also hold their major fundraisers such as concert, bingos etc. at the Tara Lynne Center.
