Would you mortgage your home to help build a community centre?

Well, a group of like minded community residents gathered around the campfire and came up with the idea of building a larger facility to hold dances, bingo’s and parties. Alas, the bank wanted to be reassured that someone was going to pay the mortgage. The following residents guaranteed the bank that indeed the money would be paid back and signed papers guaranteeing that the mortgage.

Well, incredibly, 40+ years ago a group of very special people had a dream and a vision. They saw the need for a community centre in Buckhorn. These courageous and generous people actually did mortgage their homes to realize their dream. With the help of Wintario funding, they built our Buckhorn Community Centre.
