As you can see there was a good turnout of all ages for the Switchyard BBQ last night. This is their annual fund raiser with all the money going to run programs for kids.
The name Switchyard comes from the location of the building where the programs are held. It is located behind the old train station in Bancroft where the switching yards for the trains used to be located.
Besides the BBQ they had a silent auction table. Here you dropped your raffle tickets for the items you were interested in. At the end of the evening a ticket from each bag was drawn and the lucky holder went home with a very nice prize.
They also had a live auction with the proceeds going to the Switchyard and the kids in town.
It was a fun night, lots of burgers, salads and pies to enjoy and prizes to win.
Today we are heading north to Maynooth for their Saturday Farmers' Market. The sun is shining, the mosquitoes are out and the lake water is warming up; summer has arrived.
Safe travels everyone and thanks for stopping by.
