The Grandview Homecoming Committee has been very busy since September 2014 organizing and planning a fun filled and exciting weekend for the Grandview Home Coming Festival, July 30 – August 3, 2015.

One of the main events for Saturday is the Re-enactment of the history of the Theo. A. Burrows Lumber Company. Mr. Steve Novalkowski and his committee are working very hard to bring you the history of the Burrows Lumber Company.
Whenever a community engages in providing a memory lasting event for their community, it always take money, volunteers and time. To date the Homecoming Committee has received some funds for the Re-enactment of the Burrows Lumber Company.
The Grandview Homecoming Committee 2015 has applied for a couple of grants for the whole weekend festival and were unsuccessful. So the Committee has decided that in order to bring the community the festivities that they deserve that a Grandview Homecoming 2015 Fundraising Social is being planned for Friday, June 12th at the Grandview Kinsmen Community Centre.
Our theme for the event is “THANK YOU”. Thank you to Grandview for being the community you are because as a small community we have lots to be thankful for. As we go about our communities, taking in all the festive cheer available, often very inexpensively, watching community Christmas parades, summer parades, attending church and community choirs with their concerts, attending school concerts/activities/events; museums, as well as fun seasonal entertainment provided at local retirement and nursing homes, our local recreational facilities providing programs and entertainment for the community at large, we often forget or take for granted all the tremendous volunteer hours that go into making all these wonderful offerings happen. Without all those dedicated volunteers who give so tirelessly to keep affordable, local programming and facilities available to us, our worlds would be a lot less interesting. It is so important we keep attending and supporting these events throughout our areas to ensure the continuance of the vast variety of entertainment that's available to us. The businesses in the community also work hard to give back to the community by providing donations to various functions and their
