After an eventful summer season, Brokenshell Parks and Recreation is gearing up for an exciting start to the fall season. They are continuing their efforts to raise funds for a wheelchair-accessible ramp, and the season's inaugural event is the highly anticipated Trossachs Market and Steak Night, scheduled for the end of the month.

Daphne Cheguis, the dedicated Media Manager and volunteer provides all the details for this upcoming event.

“The market will run from 1 PM to 4 PM with a kid’s craft during the same time, they will be building their own terrarium. Those are free for children, so just come on down and get crafty.” 

Following an afternoon filled with shopping and interacting with market vendors, the evening festivities will kick off with a Steak Night.

“The cocktails will open at 5:00 PM and supper is at 6:00 PM. We are selling pre-tickets for $25 for the steak special, which includes the steak salad, baked potato, and a dessert. For kids 10 and under, it's $15. And for those with smaller appetites, we're offering burgers and hot dogs for $15, or for kids 10 and under it's $10.” 

To add some excitement to the evening, there will be a 50/50 draw, offering attendees a chance to walk away with a generous cash prize, and for those who would like to win a free steak supper, you can check out the promo on Brokenshell Parks and Recreation Facebook page here.

In addition to these evening events, the park has something fresh in store for Sunday mornings, reviving a sense of community spirit reminiscent of the past.

“I was actually looking back in the history books, and our community used to be blooming. We used to have a convenience store and a little cafe, and we used to have a gas station and a library amongst other things. I would just love to see that kind of life back into our community and the other members on the board have the same goal in mind.” 

Starting this fall, every Sunday morning, locals can look forward to a weekly gathering at the Trossachs Community Hall. From 6 AM to 10 AM, friends and families can come together for a delightful morning of coffee and muffins, fostering a sense of togetherness and community spirit that's been longed for.
