Flea market vendors
Marty Williams tells me that there is still room for vendors – antiques, arts and crafts, painters, sculptors, candlemakers, hobby farmers, garage collectors, attic stuffers, basement hoarders – so if you are interested you can reach Marty Williams at: (613) 833-2252. There is a small entry fee ($5.00) and some of the tables will be supplied.
Lions Gateway Club Membership
The festival is also being billed as a “giant community fundraiser” organized in conjunction with the Lions Gateway Club and community groups.
As an added incentive to your participation, the Cumberland Lions are selling one-year Gateway memberships for the small cost of $20. This card will not only pay your way into the “Show” but is also good for hundreds of discounts and savings around the Ottawa area including the following categories: family; ladies; sports minded; adventurous; home; automobile; food / restaurants and services. You can learn more at: http://www.lionsgatewayclub.ca/.
