Why an Interview,,,

Over the years we have been able to meet and talk with some very interesting people. They have shared with us their knowledge and have provided us with a great deal of insight as to how and why festivals and events work and why they are so important to our communities and to the Province of Ontario. With this in mind, we decided that we wanted you to meet and hear from some of the wonderful people who work so hard to provide us all with such wonderful Ontario Festivals and Events! We are pleased and proud to present "THE INSIDE SCOOP"!

Judy McWhirter
Buckhorn Community Centre
Celebrating 35 Years

"Keep Smilin"

"THE INSIDE SCOOP" continues speaking with Judy McWhirter, Manager of the Buckhorn Community Centre. I go on to ask Manager Judy McWhirter.
During my interview with you Judy, I will be writing (to enlighten Ontario Visited website visitors) some brief information about some of the signature events held at the Buckhorn Community Centre, particularly for this edition of THE INSIDE SCOOP? "The Buckhorn Community Centre offers a wide range of major fund-raising activities throughout the year. Checkout our EVENTS CALENDAR regularly for upcoming events. As a not-for-profit organization, the BCC depends on these activities to meet its operating budget each year."

I asked Ms. McWhirter how does the Buckhorn Community Centre "keep things fresh" for the patrons and vendors? We learn here that ..."Well, I think the vendors with improvements at the BCC and know that we are working keeping the BCC up-to-date, making sure that there is always something new."

One question I like to ask festival/events I asked Judy, "Why do you think the Buckhorn Community Centre is an important part of our society and the community today and what role do you see as its importance? She replies . "The BCC is a meeting place, gathering groups, holding activities. It's a great place for events as it is unique. For residents and cottagers it is a great way to join a centre and get involved, meet new people and contribute to your area."

With the economic challenges today, it would seem it critical to obtain/maintain Sponsor funding and Other Sources of funding. How you go about obtain funding? Judy tells us . "We actually do not have a lot of sponsors, we are rural. We are always looking for Grants."

 Over the course of the year, I am collecting some anecdotes to publish. I asked Judy if she something you would like to share in our THE INSIDE SCOOP special "anecdote" edition? Simply she replied . "Keep Smilin"!
