Our Country Fair & Pumpkin Patch was a huge success with even Mother Nature helping us out!
We have many sponsors that help make this event possible. As you all know this is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we depend on it to pay for all the fabulous experiences our children get throughout the year–plus some extra this year going towards some playground enhancements.
Please take some time to make a note of our sponsors listed below and reach out via Facebook or better yet in person when you or someone you know can use their services. Personally I always love companies/ businesses that support our community and our children…it really says something about them!
In no particular order:
Lynn Valley Lions– this is one that needs to be first or tied for first! Lynn Valley Lions volunteer in the community tirelessly throughout the year. They not only bring the equipment needed (cookshack, tents, etc etc etc) but also men and women power to run the events. They’ve done festivals and fundraisers for years and they know the in’s and out’s! Our biggest fundraiser would not be the same without their support and connections!
Save On Foods is another one that is tied for first! This connection – made through the Lynn Valley Lions- is a huge cost saver to us.
“Throughout our history, we’ve actively supported the communities in which we do business. After all, those communities support us too. So whether it’s local sporting events, charities or community services, we’re proud to be good neighbours.”
Please show Save On Foods your support whenever possible:)
Green Coast Rubbish returned for a second year of sponsorship! How great is that! Eamonn also gave us part of his Saturday to man a bouncy castle for us- and we all know how precious a Saturday is! And, he brought a cheque with him, gotta love that! Take some time to check out his community involvement on his website (About Us- Community).
“My brother and I started Green Coast Rubbish as an idea and a truck. Green Coast was founded on the principle of how to improve the way that waste was managed in our community. We felt there was a definite need to offer more environmentally conscious ways to deal with our waste.”
HomePro Handyman is also a returning sponsor! Jeff spent part of his Saturday morning with us on the field manning one of our bouncy castle rides also. As well as his time, he also donated monetarily to the event. BIG thanks to Jeff and HomePro!
“Since 1999 homeowners across the Lower Mainland have trusted us with everything from those ‘honey-do-lists’ that never seem to get completed, to that brand new designer kitchen or addition…”
So if you’re from Lynn Valley chances are you know our next sponsor …Jim Lanctot and Kelly Gardiner of LynnValleyLife
Jim Lanctot had double duty on Saturday as he is also a busy family man with 3 children at Lynn Valley Elementary…he was at the official pumpkin patch area for the duration of the event as well as helping with heavy lifting before and after!
“LynnValleyLife began with a team of local residents who decided they wanted to use their skills and experience to build something to support, strengthen and celebrate their home community. LynnValleyLife is your community website – a place to share news and views, learn more about this beautiful neighbourhood, and meet some of the people who live here. It’s also your portal to the real estate listings and ReMax experts who can help you buy or sell within Lynn Valley. Get to know more about LynnValleyLife!”
Thanks Jim & Kelly!
Smithwerks Carpet & Upholstery Care, Dave Smith is another returning sponsor- he just can’t get enough of us! As a fellow Lynn Valley resident Dave is active on the North Shore and obviously loves his community as much as we love him! Dave supported us monetarily and in spirit:)

Perimeter Drainage jumped on board for the first time this year with a bang! And a bin- Chris Grey not only came with cheque in hand he also gave us a ‘mini bin’ for our garbage AND took it away! Thanks for saving the school bins Chris! Perimeter Drainage is also a very community minded- scholarships, Ride to Conquer Cancer, Food Bank…and more! Thumbs up!

Delany’s Coffee have been a sponsor for a number of years and are always quick to say ‘yes’ when asked to support our school. Delany’s donated all the coffee to the Patch as well as coffee for our volunteers. That’s a big boost to us on a long busy day! Thanks Robin and crew!
