Little Lakes Community Center (old Hemlock School)


The Little Lakes Community Association will celebrate its second annual Barn Fest on Saturday, September 22 from 10 until 6 at their new center on Main Street in Hemlock. As the association acquired the old Hemlock School, the former Jack Evans Community Center, from the Town of Livonia in June, it is now officially the Little Lakes Community Center.

The Barn Fest will have something for everyone of all ages. Numerous craft vendors, entertainment, a farmers market, delicious food, and chain saw carving, as well as creating fairy gardens, and other activities for children are planned.

The entertainment line-up is as follows:
11 to 12 – Liam and Emma Raines, performing country and blue grass music.

12:30 to 1:30 – Topher Holt – music and story telling for kids.

2 to 3 – Cherie Comstock and Richie Taromino – country and oldies music.

3:30 to 5:30 – Talent Show!

We are looking for local talented folks to enter to perform on our outdoor stage: five acts performed by children, 17 years of age and under; five acts performed by adults, 18 years and over. Prizes for first and second place for each category will be awarded. No act can be longer than 5 minutes on the stage, with songs limited to around 3 minutes. All material performed must be family appropriate. Contestants will be judged on 1.) originality; 2.) showmanship; 3.) creativity. If you would like to enter the contest, send a video by email to or by phone to 585-703-7536 no later than September 14. You will be contacted by your email address or phone number if you are selected to be one of the ten finalists to enter the contest.

At the event, you may also want to sample pies from the Special Touch Bakery of Rochester and order yours, to be delivered just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. For more details on this fund-raising event that benefits both of these hard-working not-for-profits, visit our website or Facebook page.

LLCA is also looking forward to sponsoring an Antiques Appraisal Fair on Saturday, October 13. If you are interested in participating, you may offer up to 3 antiques for appraisal by expert Michael Demming, for $5.00 for each item. Stay tuned for more details about this exciting opportunity!
