Annual Buck Lake and Buck Lake Association Events

Boatilla

Boatilla Held annually in late June or early July, the boatilla raises funds to send Easter Seals kids to Camp Merrywood.  Following a tour of the South Branch, boaters meet at Hidden Valley Campground for a picnic and the presentation to Easter Seals.

Education Night

 The Annual Education Night is organized by the Friends of the Lake committee and is usually held in mid-July at the Perth Road Sunday School Hall.  Each year brings us new and interesting speakers on a wide range of environmental topics designed to be of interest to the whole family.

Picnic

Great Food at the Buck Lake Picnic

One of the highlights of the summer is the Buck Lake Picnic. A wonderful opportunity to get together with fellow Buck Lakers and enjoy some great food and conversation.  In addition, there are always games and crafts to keep the kids entertained.

Murder Mystery

Murder Mystery Dinner The Annual Murder Mystery is held each October jointly with the Westport Legion.

In addition to the Murder Mystery, there is a silent auction with a huge selection of items to bid on. The proceeds from the auction are shared between the Legion and Buck Lake with the Buck Lake portion supporting Easter Seals Camp Merrywood.
