GENESEO — Geneseo Kiwanis’ 2016 April Antique Show was similar to past shows, but there was one key difference.
This year, Kiwanis encouraged attendees to donate canned foods, to be passed along to the Geneseo Groveland food pantry.
“The one difference about this year’s Antique Show was that you got a dollar off admission with a canned food donation,” said Pam Linfoot, two-term treasurer of Geneseo Kiwanis and event coordinator of the Antique Show.
Attendees gave 6 to 8 large cases of canned foods.
Over 1,000 people attended the show, which featured over 50 antique dealers at the New York State Armory in Geneseo.
Kiwanis has announced another Antique show and sale at the same location on October 15 and 16. Admission for the entire weekend is $7.
“I’d absolutely encourage the community to come out and support the antique show in the fall,” said Linfoot.
