Volunteers needed for Mayfair

Planning for Mayfair, our biggest activity of the year is in full swing and we need your help!

We have many great Lead Volunteers, but we are in need of some additional help in a few key areas:

    • Food Organization (coordinate with different vendors/volunteers, organize purchase and pickup/delivery of food/beverages)
    • Book Fair (organize set up and tear down, coordinate volunteers)
    • Online Auction (organize distribution of items to winners)
    • Bike Parade (coordinate volunteers to set up and attend road barricades)

Mayfair cannot happen without these essential lead volunteers.

New volunteers don’t need to start from scratch as the parents who coordinated these events last year can provide all the necessary information.

Interested? Questions? Please email Chair@lakeviewschoolcouncil.ca.

Mayfair was a great success! Thank you!

It was a beautiful, sunny day and everyone enjoyed the activities, food, and entertainment. And we raised over $6000 for Lakeview! These funds will go towards books for the library, outdoor equipment, and arts and sciences programs in the school.

We are very grateful to everyone who attended Mayfair as well as our many volunteers, donors and sponsors who made the day possible. Thank you for supporting Lakeview!
