Mayfair Community and Fundraising EventBalloons

Mayfair is a Lakeview tradition that is lots of fun for the whole family and is also our biggest single fundraiser each year. This full day of activities will be held on a Saturday in May, rain or shine, and includes a bike parade, bake sale, plant sale, used book sale, guest entertainers and a talent show featuring Lakeview students. Mayfair cannot happen without the huge support from our Council members and school parents. If you would like to get involved somehow, please contact your Council Chair at chair@lakeviewschoolcouncil.ca. The Mayfair Planning Committee begins its work in late January. Make sure you come and join us! Learn more about this year’s Mayfair plans.
