It’s become a tradition that crafters (and those who loves crafts) gravitate to and it’s this Saturday.

It’s Art in the Park and the Rotary Club of Sarnia Bluewaterland is making sure the event will be every bit as successful as it has been since the club took over the reins a few years ago.

Club president Henry Kulik spent some time with Lambton Shield and goes over some of the details here:

Volunteers with the Huron House Boys’ Home will be helping with the installation of stakes, an essential part of the set up.

Funds raised—close to $10,000 last year—will be used to support various club projects, including the International Flag Plaza at the Blue Water Bridge, a Peace Garden at Centennial Park and accessible playgrounds the club has installed at various parks in Sarnia, including Mike Weir, Canatara and Germain.

A portion of funds raised at Saturday’s Art in the Park will go to Gallery in the Grove, which for years organized the event before it was taken over by the Rotarians.

Vendors and exhibitors, about 100 in total, each paid at least $100 for a space (the price went up to $120 on April 30).
