Wow! What a great Lynn Valley Day weekend! The LynnValleyLife crew was busy running the games pitch and the new SuperKids Obstacle Course, but were able to capture some of the park and parade festivities on camera. Here is a re-cap on the day from organizer Gillian Konst, director of the Lynn Valley Community Association:
Thank you to everyone for the biggest and best Lynn Valley Days so far.
With the weather firmly on our side, this was truly the best attended and most succesful Lynn Valley Days ever. We don’t have hard numbers yet, but it’s estimated that up to 15,000 people visited the park on Saturday!
Hundreds of volunteers, along with the exhibitors and parade participants, made it a day to remember for the thousands who came out to enjoy the rides, games, Cookshack, activities and entertainment.
The warm weather also meant that our inaugural evening concert and BBQ dinner on Saturday evening were a big hit. What a great way to end the weekend!
Lynn Valley Days is organized by the community for the community. It is all about building and strengthening the community in which we live. Thanks to our generous sponsors and donors we have two beneficiaries from our weekend: The Tim Jones Legacy Fund and The North Shore Disability Resource Centre.
We were surprised but thrilled to discover that the night of our gala would also have been Tim Jones’ birthday; we were able to raise a glass and toast this remarkable man and the legacy he has left us.
Thank you from The Lynn Valley Community Association, Lynn Valley Legion and Lynn Valley Lions to everyone who pitched in, donated, participated and came to support the 102nd Lynn Valley Days. Together we make a difference in the community and you are all part of continuing the tradition.
