We strive to continually give back to the communities in which we work. In October of 2018, we hosted our 4th annual Lyons Fireworks event which was our most successful community event to date. With the generosity of our fellow Kamloopsians, together we raised over $4,000 (plus 600 pounds of food) in 3 hours and all was donated to the Kamloops Food Bank and United Way Thompson Nicola Cariboo. The family event themed 'Pumpkin Head Painting' included hot drinks and food, a full movie theatre, bouncy castle, dance floor, photo booths, games & activities, pumpkin painting, pumpkin smashing, finishing with a 20 minute commercial fireworks performance. With the support of like-minded Kamloopsians, we raised hundreds of pounds in food donation.
NL Radio, Home Hardware, and Lyons Landscaping partnered up to initiate a community garden bed in 2016. The goal is to grow fresh vegetables to feed those in need. Since then, twenty-nine additional local businesses has voluntarily sponsored the cause with $1,000 each. It is truly a feel-good function and projected to expand in 2018.
Along with community events, we ensure our in-house culture is strengthened by hosting monthly luncheons and annual staff parties.
