The Buckeye Community Club is a group of family-oriented residents from the Buckeye area and beyond. We meet once a month at Buckeye School, giving members an opportunity to socialize with our neighbors, while also preserving the last prairie schoolhouse in the Buckeye and Wellington areas.

 

Members take turns hosting get-togethers on the 2nd Saturday of each month, usually with a potluck dinner. Speakers, programs, playing games, or just visiting are at the hosts’ option. 

At October’s Annual Meeting, new members are elected to the Board and dues and host families decided for the next year. Buckeye School is supported by dues (currently $70/year or $35/person), by donations, and with occasional fundraisers. Members may serve as hosts, help organize maintenance projects and clean-up days, or serve on the Board. 

The Historic Buckeye School is located at 935 West County Road 80 (east of the junction with North County Road 17) in Larimer County, Colorado.
