Lombardy Agricultural Society Fairgrounds, Lombardy Ontario
A Message from the Kemptville College Alumni Board
The Alumni Board is preparing for our annual reunion, Saturday, August 24th, 2019.
It will be held at the Lombardy Agricultural Society Fairgrounds, 7 Kelly Road, Smiths Falls (just off Hwy 15). This is the third year that the reunion has been held in this location and this is also the site where our Alumni Historical building is being constructed. It is a totally wheelchair accessible facility and grounds.
Motor homes and tents can be accommodated but there is no electrical hook up available. Two “porta potties” will be available for overnight campers.
We are honouring the years ending in ‘4 and ‘9 but all graduating years are invited to attend. As always, we ask the honour years to provide the items for the silent and live auction. When you bring your donated article, please complete the required sheet provided at the auction table. We can provide a charitable receipt for your article. The money raised from the auctions will go towards the Historical Building Fund.
We will not be able to accept Credit Cards for payment the day of the reunion.
Please Bring Lawn Chairs and enjoy the lovely outdoors.
