2017 Riverbend Community 

Annual Stampede Breakfast

July 9, 2017

 ( Activities and Fun Taking Place Inside and Outside )

The event was a huge success last year, and it plans to be even bigger and better this year  in honor of the fact that 2017 also marks our 30th year as a Community Association as well as being the 150th Birthday for Canada !!!!!

So, we have tried to pull out all the stops to make this event "one for the memory books".
