Lakefield Horticultural Society – Antique + Vintage Sale and Flower Show

LHS509The Board of Directors of the Lakefield & District Horticultural Society announces that the 2016 Lakefield Antique + Vintage Sale & Flower Show will not take place.

The Board would like to thank all of our suppliers, sponsors and member volunteers who gave of their time and talents over the past 37 years.  Without you the show would not have been possible. Increased competition among summer public events, consumer shows and the current economic environment no longer make this fundraising activity a viable business proposition for our Society.

While we are sad to see the end of this fundraiser, we are looking forward to getting creative and coming up with something new and fresh to raise funds for our society.

The members of the Horticultural Society are extremely proud of the show’s long history and generous support from the antique & business community.  Funds raised through this show have helped to cover volunteer projects of the Horticultural Society including garden plantings and the beautiful hanging baskets seen throughout the Village of Lakefield. The society also uses raised funds to bring exceptional speakers to their monthly meetings and share eco-friendly gardening tips with members and guests.   For many years the society has also supported students pursuing an education in the horticultural or environmental field.

The Board of Directors and member volunteers of the Lakefield Horticultural Society are currently investigating other fundraising options.
