Dance Information

Geneva Park on Lake Couchiching was for many years the location of the Toronto RSCDS Branch Annual Workshop Weekend.

This jig, Geneva Park, was popular locally, as was the deviser, Bob Campbell. In remembrance, the dance was on the programme for the Toronto RSCDS 40th Tartan Ball in 2006.
