The 34th Annual Meet Your Neighbour Picnic, held Aug. 20 in the Beeton Fairgrounds, was met with beautiful weather and a great turnout. This family friendly event had something for everyone, beginning with a pancake breakfast cooked by local volunteer firefighters and a 3-pitch softball tournament. There was also a Sunday church service, day long barbecue and a vendor marketplace, as well as kids entertainment and Darts in the Park.
A silent auction, benefitting the Our Town Food Bank, was also held in the Rotary Hall. Auction items included a Heineken beer fridge donated by Boston Pizza Alliston, and a car detailing package donating by Trillium Ford.
The Beeton-Tottenham BIA stage featured live music by Beeton’s very own Wes Martyn. The traditionally free corn roast and bike draw ended the day. Add in face painters, and of course your neighbours, and the Meet Your Neighbour Picnic was a day of pure pleasure in the park.
