By Tabitha Wells – As the snow begins to melt, the birds begin to chirp and Mother Nature finally begins to make way for Spring to make her appearance, the 17th annual Lions Home and Garden Show this weekend will help people start planning their home renovation projects for the warmer season.

“People interested in attending are going to see anything really that has to do with home and garden,” explained Doug Schild, Chairman of the Home and Garden Show.

“There will be everything from renovations, home improvement, gardening, landscaping and hot tubs to window and door guys, heating guys and some decorators; pretty much anything for Home Improvement. There’s even a furniture company there, so it pretty much encompasses everything.”

The show acts as the Lions Club’s main fundraiser for the year, and all money raised goes towards running the community events and programs they host annually to help people in need in the community.

“We have 55 members in the club and it takes participation from all the members to make this show happen,” said Mr. Schild. “It’s a big event, it’s our major fundraising event for the year. We start planning in the fall, so it takes a lot to get it organized and put together for this weekend.”

Admission and parking are free, making it a great way to spend some time out with the family without having to worry about needing to spend any money.

This year, the event boasts 160 vendors and 220 booths, as well as a food court available for those in needs of something to snack on during the event.

The show runs this Friday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
