customturfThe 42nd Annual Greater Olean Area Home and Garden Show welcomed more than 3,569 visitors April 12-14 (about 300 less attendees than last year).  Seventy-four vendors were on hand to display and demonstrate products from hot tubs, to gardening supplies, along with heating and cooling systems. The event, hosted by Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce, was co-sponsored by their  48 corporate sponsors.

The vendors at the Home and Garden Show were enrolled in a contest for “Best Booth” based on neatness, presentation, props, information and theme-related. The theme this year is “Where Inspiration Becomes Reality.”  Winners for 2013 Greater Olean Area Home and Garden Show go to: Best Use of Theme – Lee’s Wine & Beer, and Best Overall Booth – Scott’s Landscaping. Congratulations to both and thanks to the judges for their time and coordination. Prizes were discounts on 2014’s Greater Olean Area Home and Garden Show rental.

The winners of the door prizes were: GRAND PRIZE Barnsley 5-piece Dining Set winner Kerrie Crabtree of Olean; SECOND PRIZE Arrow Gazebo winner Ann Martello of Bolivar; THIRD PRIZE 22” Charcoal Grill winner Shawn Anastasia of Olean; FOURTH PRIZE Outdoor Fireplace winner Kate McLear of Olean; and FIFTH PRIZE Outdoor Patio Lights winner Lori Carlson of Olean.
