Testimonial 2016

Let me start with thanking all of you for the July 1 festivities. It was so amazing and very well organized. We live in Ajax and ever since we bought our cottage 8 years ago, we only go to the Buckhorn Canada Day festivities.

Our kids love the climbing rock, the free petting zoo, the different magicians, the $1 Kawartha Dairy ice cream, the homemade grilled onions on the hamburgers, the jumping castles (one year, you had the Velcro jumping castle, that was great fun for teens), the hundreds and hundreds of homemade Canada Day cupcakes, the free watermelon everywhere, the friendly vendors with their great deals and so on!!! Thank you to the great volunteers of the Buckhorn Community Centre!”
