Merry Everything and Happy Always
from your Big Bald Lake Neighbours! 

Thank you to everyone who participated in our virtual AGM.  If you have any questions please check out the minutes on our website or email us and we will try to help.

Covid19 continues to plague us and we hope everyone is keeping safe and healthy in this unprecedented year.   Depression is a side effect of being isolated for so long and we want you to know about a couple of things in the works to get you out and about while social distancing at the cottage.  And some great contests to keep you involved if you are unable to safely visit the cottage.

Jump on over to our website to enter contests and get up to date on all the happenings in Buckhorn.  Special Thanks to Nancy Boyce who does such an excellent job keeping the website current. 

First Contest:
Where's the Beaver, enter  a guess to win a gift basket of local goodies - Deadline is January 9, 2021

Starting January 9th: When will the Beaver go through the ice Contest.
Noting the Location of where the Beaver has been hiding will be revealed before you cast your vote because a new location could impact the day he goes for a dip.  Deadline is February 28, 2021

Starting January 15th: "Scavenger" Hunt, a downloadable map will be made available for photo references of things to find on the lake, Walk the lake and find the corresponding location to each photo.  The first correctly completed contest entry will win a gift basket of local goodies - Deadline is February 15, 2021
Smaller prizes will be drawn on February 16 for all correct answers received.  

This year's parade is going to be on Friday January 1st starting at 2pm.  We'll be meeting at the 4 Corners on Philrick by Saunders and Fire Route 87.  The parade will be open to anyone who wants to walk it with their puppies or on their own, or to put a "float" in.  Please stay in your family bubbles and keep a good distance between us as we walk or ride.  Please have a mask to wear when we cannot socially distance and for when returning to the Flanagan's after the parade for hot chocolate and by the fire to warm up outside.  Let's keep safe, stay home if you don't feel well or have been exposed to anyone with COVID19.  We want to be a Super Spreader of Joy only!  It's been a rough year, let's put together a zombie apocalypse parade and have some fun outside together enjoying this fabulous countryside.  
Fuel the BCC 

The Buckhorn Community Centre is looking for help to keep their doors open.  They are doing multiple things to fuel the BCC.  Check out their website to see all the ways that you can support them.  But to name a few...

Every Wednesday Pizza Alloro is donating a portion of their sales to the BCC, so eat FANTASTIC pizza and give back!  (Seriously have you had their Chicken Ceasar Pizza?  Especially good on their gluten free cauliflower crust.)

On the 2nd Tuesday and 4th Tuesday they have Takeaway Dinners.  (I hear excellent things about them!)
January 12 = Cabbage rolls, parsley potatoes, roll, and cupcake for dessert.
January 26 = Robbie Burns menu

Or just make a donation and receive a charitable tax receipt.

Please help support local... BUY LOCAL or BYE LOCAL
We are still looking for a social director, please contact Sue Flanagan if you are interested.  Also if you have any items you can donate for the gift basket prizes please let Sue know too.
