Norfolk Community Day
Join us for the first annual Norfolk Community Day on June 18 to re-connect and celebrate all things Norfolk!
From free swims, fire hall tours, live music, llamas, pickleball, food and more. The event will coincide to include museum and library programs in addition to the Simcoe Seniors’ Centre Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and an Outdoor Music & Movie Night at the Delhi Friendship Centre.
Let’s gather safely and remember what makes our community so amazing.
