Those who took the opportunity to enjoy the annual Golden Horseshoe Chicken Roast, left echoing that it was a tremendous success again this year. The event also had a record number of attendees.

The hosts, Bobcat of Hamilton, did not disappoint the crowd. There were Bobcat rodeos, free pony rides for the kids, a section for the kids to create their own unique pot of plants, face painting, a mini-remote control excavator, a DJ and a visit from Hamilton Bulldogs AHL hockey team mascot Bruiser. For $10, it was a real bargain to enjoy some of the area’s finest barbecued chicken. Nobody went hungry and the chicken was cooked to perfection by the chapter’s executive chef team. Well done!

Thanks again to all the wonderful sponsors this year: Bobcat of Hamilton, Permacon, Unilock, Oaks, Premier Biotechnologies, Windmill Power Equipment, Grand River Natural Stone, Vanderwoude Landscape Supply, Connon NVK, Brother’s Equipment Rental, Hamilton Bulldogs AHL team and Jan Gelderman Landscaping.
