(Lansdowne, ON) The village of Lansdowne is going all out this year in celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Lansdowne Fair. In addition to all the other amazing things they have planned, LAFR (the Lansdowne Association for Revitalization) has created a wonderful, village wide summer garden competition.
“We have a colour theme for our hanging baskets and planter boxes in the Lansdowne community,” says Donna Dempsey of LAFR. “This theme is ‘Canada, Eh?’, using red and white flowers. If you would like to coordinate your gardens and planters with this theme, go for it!
“We also have a summer garden contest and the information is contained in our flyer. This is our first year, so help us out and enter the contest. The judging will be done as a drive by, so no one will see the odd weed in the garden! Let’s see how many entries we can get.
“Winners will be announced at the 150th Lansdowne Fair, July 18-20. There are also red and white themed categories in the Floral Section of the Lansdowne Fair Prize Book.”
The competition is open to everyone living in the K0E 1L0 postal code range. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
