Since the North End Community Centre was renamed a lot of people have been asking who Nick Nicolle was. We all must remember this man and his accomplishments. Nick was the first Director of Recreation for the Amalgamated City of Saint John in 1967. He would fit in well today as he believed in investing in neighborhoods. During his time as Director, Community Centres, parks, and rinks were constructed in all areas of the city. One of those was the North End Centre which was built in 1979.

Nick was also a star athlete and is in the Saint John Sports Hall of Fame. He's remembered as a family man and church member. Nick's achievements have meant a great deal to generations of Saint John residents.
