IN OUR BACKYARD
Not only can you witness nature at its finest with abounding lakes or the beautiful Bonnechere River entwined in the woodlands of the Canadian Shield, but you can also explore the mysterious and world famous Bonnechere Caves.
You can relax and stroll along the streets of the "Jewel of the Bonnechere", better known as The Village of Eganville.
Canada 150 celebration comes fresh off the heels of Eganville's 125th success! Our goal was to record 125 events taking place in Bonnechere Valley over 2016 and we surpassed that goal with 200 events on the books!
As the saying goes, copying is the sincerest form of flattery - and boy have we been flattered! Many of our neighbouring townships are planning on doing One Hundred and Fifty events for Canada's 150th. We're not going to let them out do us...So get ready for 150 events coming 2017 Township of Bonnechere Valley!
We are going to bring back the most successful events from our 125th, rethink some others and spread out the fun across the year. The popular Homecoming Weekend in August will return with the Street Dance. Of course we will do Canada Day as big and bold as ever! The Library Fundraiser will be a hoot! This years theme is "My Big Fat Ottawa Valley Wedding" and guests are encouraged to come as anyone attending a valley wedding. So drag out those old bridemaid dresses or camo cummerbunds.
These fun events bring people to our community and are not only good for our spirit but also good for business. And we cannot do them without a committee of community minded volunteers. You don't even need to live in the township to help out! If your group/school/organization is already planning an event for 2017 let us put the 150 logo on it and it our our list.
If you have some ideas, time and can help in any way please be in touch with Dana Jennings at 613.628.3101 ext 226 or firstname.lastname@example.org...Learn more
