We are nearing the end of summer, children will be back to school soon, and busses will be running. Fall is coming quickly, but there are lots of Lambton County events to enjoy before the warm weather leaves us.

A fun event for the entire family to attend is the Lambton County Plowing Match which will be held on Saturday, August 31th at the farm of Mark Williams 8619 Egremont Road in Warwick Township.
