Local companies team up to send kids to the Lindsay Ex

KAWARTHA LAKES-Three local companies have joined forces to help send kids and their families to the Lindsay Exhibition.

Cable Cable, a local telecommunications company and the Lindsay Agricultural Society have arranged to donate ten single day family passes to the BGCKL. The Club plans to divide the passes between local families who utilize their services, their 2018 Summer Camp attendees, and the Youth Leaders who help run their programs. “We’re proud to call the Kawarthas home, and we feel it’s important to give back to the community in any way we can,” says Michael Fiorini, CEO of Cable Cable. “Being family owned and operated, we have always maintained a ‘family-first’ philosophy and we recognize how exciting it is for families to attend a big local event like the LEX.”

Hosted by the Lindsay Agricultural Society, the LEX is the fourth-largest agricultural fair in Ontario and attracts thousands of people each year. The LEX is in it’s 164th year!

“For many families, attending the LEX is a nostalgic outing which signifies the transition into fall, and serves as an important way to stay connected to their community,” says Harry Stoddart, General Manager of the Lindsay Agricultural Society. “We’re happy to work with Cable Cable and the BGCKL to help facilitate this experience for local families.”

Cable Cable has had a long-standing relationship with the Boys and Girls Club, which includes support of the Club’s athletics and Leaders in Training programs and promotion of their services and initiatives through Cable Cable’s Community Connections media sponsorship program.

The 2018 LEX will be held from September 19th to 23rd and in addition to the typical fall fair fun, this year’s ‘LEX party!’ features big-name country acts Cold Creek County and Jason Blaine.
