Builders Home Show
To be Held March 7 to 9
It has been a
long, very cruel and very cold winter and one sure way to turn
to warmer thoughts is come to the 55th Annual West Branch
Builders Home Show to be held this weekend, Friday, March 7,
Saturday, March 8 and Sunday, March 9, at the Lycoming College
The show opens
with state legislators, Lycoming County Commissioners, Mayor
Campana, Lycoming College administrators, and the president of
the Pennsylvania Builders Association invited to kick off the
show with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 2:30 on Friday, March 7.
The Show opens to the public at 3:00 p.m.
Marian Nyman, who along with her husband, Walt, are executive
officers of the Home Show, low interest rates and reasonably
priced building materials make this a great time to discuss new
construction or remodeling ideas. Attendees will have the
opportunity to talk with experts about the newest innovations
and products available in the industry. Products and services
evolve and improve over the years, and the Home Show enables
home-related businesses to educate the public about who they
are, what they do, and what they offer.
"There will be
a wealth of home improvement information to be gained at the
Home Show for a minimal entry fee," Nyman told Webb Weekly.
"Admission is $5.00 for persons 12 years of age and older or
$3.00 with a canned food item, which will be used to fill a
‘House of Cans,’ made by the construction students from W.A.H.S.
Food donations benefit food banks in the area."
In addition to
vendors on two floors inside the rec center, there will also be
outside vendors showing sheds, vehicles and RVs. She said this
is a great time to look forward to spring, and make plans for
that special project or landscaping update you’ve been dreaming
about. Attendees will discover the best deals from over 160
exhibitors including, custom, log and manufactured home
builders, remodelers, decks, garages, spas, kitchen and bath
professionals, gas and electric utilities, appliances, carpet
and flooring, heating and air conditioning and waterproofing.
Williamsport High School construction students will be on hand
to exhibit the donated cans of food in their "House of Cans."
The community has been so generous, giving more than 8 barrels
of food each year for area food banks.
College Construction Association students will also be on hand
to oversee the treasure chest. Each person attending the Show is
given a key to try their luck opening the chest to win a prize.
Visitors may enter to win one of 3 grand prizes of $500 each,
given to lucky winners at the end of every evening. The winners
do not need to be present to win, and will receive gift
certificates for goods or services from the exhibitor of their
choice. Other prize drawings from individual exhibitors will
occur throughout the Show.
