This is reflected in our Hiking, Biking, Dances, Aerobics and other Outdoor Activities.Not under any measurable category, are the amazing Artists who perform here.

    Catch a day of live gospel music at the Buckhorn Presbyterian Church in Masonville on Saturday, Aug. 18. Picnic space, free admission, local art and fresh barbecue earmark this event as one of summer's last musical celebrations. Buckhorn Presbyterian outreach committee member Craig Keeton promised the 11th annual Gospel Music Festival will go on no matter what the weather forecast holds."It is a nondenominational event," Keeton said. "It is gospel music that will touch everyone. We have had people from all different religions participate. Admission is free. The only thing we do is ask for a love offering to help pay for the travel expenses for the musicians but that is optional." The festival will feature a wide variety of musical styles. "There's bluegrass, a little bit of western, some contemporary," Keeton said. "I have been working at it all 11 years and it is always an exciting and uplifting time."Free, but a love offering will be accepted. .
