Scenes from Lowell: 2022 Lowell Community Expo Edition

After being cancelled in 2020 and moved to the Riverwalk for 2021, the Lowell Community Expo moved back to Lowell High School for 2022. It was the 24th year for the annual event which is hosted by the Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce.

Running this past Saturday from 9am-2pm, here’s a look back at all the happenings of the day.

Dozens of businesses, non-profits and other organizations set up booths in the Lowell High School cafeteria and gymnasium. They included some longtime Lowell businesses, such as Arctic Heating and Cooling

…and Reagan Family Dentistry.

Others were relatively new additions to the Lowell Community, such as West Michigan Hospice.

One booth which drew a crowd was for a business that isn’t even open in Lowell yet — Culver’s.

There were also non-profits like LowellArts

…and Alpha Care Center.

Many a visitor was excited to see the little horse which was part of the Michigan Horse Driving School booth.

And a minion was making the rounds greeting kids too.

Up on the main stage, there was live music and other entertainment.

And WRWW broadcast the happenings so those who couldn’t make it were able to listen at home.

Hourly raffles were held by the Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce.

And many groups, such as the Friends of the Englehardt Library, were holding their own raffles as well.

A few booths had items that could be purchased. For instance, Better Place Farm had plants, maple syrup and more.

And the Lowell Area Historical Museum had printed copies of their popular ABCs of Lowell History series for sale.

Betten Baker Automotive Group was the main sponsor of this year’s Expo.

And the car dealer brought a number of vehicles to display outside the high school.

Representatives of the Lowell Area Fire Department were also outside braving the cold and late March snow.

As always, the Lowell Expo had booths handing out information on everything residents might want to know, from their schooling options through Lowell Area Schools…

…to how to stay healthy with programs offered by LoWellness.

For those who weren’t already Lowell residents or looking for a change, Amanda Rogers of Rogers Neighborhood Realty was available to talk about how to find the perfect home.

As was Greenridge Realty with their very cozy looking booth.

If you missed Expo this year, mark your calendar for the fourth Saturday of March in 2023. There will be a room full of smiling faces waiting to greet you.
