And – drum roll please -congratulations to our contest winners:

  • Disney on Ice – David R.
  • Colouring Contest – Hadley M, Owen T-C, and Bridget T

On behalf of the Pumpkin Patch Committee, we would like to thank our long-time Gold sponsors Save-on FoodsMiura Property Services, and Lynn Valley Lions for their continued support of our event.  Throughout the years of the Lynn Valley Pumpkin Patch we have been so fortunate to work with such great community partners.  They have always made a significant contribution to our event and we look forward to their continued support.

This is the third year Mosaic Homes has been a Gold sponsor.  Mosaic has helped to make the Pumpkin Patch a huge success and we could not be more thankful for their contribution. Thank you so much and we look forward to working with Mosaic Homes in the future.

We would like to take a moment to get to know our major GOLD sponsors, listed in alphabetical order:


The Lynn Valley Lions show up early and stay until everything is cleaned up.  Their contribution goes 100% to the school they are working with.  They put countless hours in to support our community!  We are so thankful for the selflessness of the Lions in Lynn Valley.

The Lynn Valley Lions Club has been working in the community since 1970. Our 41+ member club is a community-focused organization that has significantly contributed to local groups, residents and communities. Our members work in partnership with sponsors such as Save-On Foods and service organizations like Lynn Valley Community Association and Lynn Valley Legion as well as other local lions clubs.

We have one important goal: To serve and help others in need.


Miura Property Services has been working with homeowners, strata owners, and commercial businesses in the Lower Mainland for nearly 20 years. From garden and property maintenance to construction services and creative problem solving, MPS can handle it all. We are experts in finding solutions to those ‘impossible’ problems.

Miura Property Services is a family company with strong ties to Lynn Valley; a community-minded company with a passion for helping – whether it be a neighbour or local school.


We believe homes should be full of light, open and airy, rich in detail and designed so that every inch counts. Homes should also be beautiful to look at and easy to love.

With this in mind, we focus on the details that count the most when designing and building your home. Great floorplans and smart use of space, striking architecture and beautiful finishes. All complemented by rich landscaping. And of course, our high ceilings and big windows, fill your home with lots of natural light.

After 15 years, over 4,000 homes, and thousands of wonderful families calling a Mosaic home their home, our focus on designing and building better homes has never wavered.

A Better Home is our promise.



Save-on actively supports the communities in which we do business. After all, those communities support us too. So whether it’s sporting events, charities or community services, we’re proud to be good neighbours.

Going the Extra Mile
To this day, we remain committed to our customers – in fact, we go so far as to pledge that we’ll go the extra mile, each and every day. See pledges from your Save-On-Foods at

Special thanks to Hasler Homes, our Pumpkin Patch Platinum Sponsor

Hasler Homes is a North Shore home builder who has been extremely supportive of our school and we would like to share a little bit about this community-oriented company:

Greg Hasler has made a name for Hasler Homes Ltd as a top-tier construction company focusing on custom homes and large renovations. Knowing the importance of building homes that align with the BC’s Step Code, Greg has become fully trained in Passive House, Built Green, and is currently training in Net Zero. He has built a skilled team that can do everything from project management, design decisions, framing & forming, to turn-key ready. When it comes to sub-trades, from surveyors to roofers, Team Hasler has a full roster of tradespeople who share the same desire to exceed expectations. The Hasler Homes team will ensure that your needs as a homeowner are fully realized and your expectations surpassed.

Greg developed his skills and vision while working as a foreman for an internationally-renowned company where he contributed top-level work on some of the most prestigious homes in the city of Vancouver. Greg has quickly become known for his quality control, overseeing each project as he would his own home.

We were so fortunate to have Hasler Homes as a Platinum sponsor of this year’s Pumpkin Patch!  It is so great to have such wonderful community partners. Thank you Hasler Homes, from all of us at Lynn Valley Elementary.
