On our way to 100!
Lakeland College centennial celebrations hit the road this summer and the centennial float will be seen in parades throughout the region as well as Edmonton K-Days. Locally, the centennial is the theme of the Lloydminster Colonial Days and the Vermilion Fair. To ensure a large Lakeland presence at both events, the centennial committee needs volunteers to assist with booths at these events. If you’re interested in working a two or three hour shift during the Lloydminster Colonial Days (July 10-13) or the Vermilion Fair (July 25-27) please contact Michelle Oswell at ext. 5468
