The Lima Crossroads Council’s mission is to promote Lima and bring vitality to the village core and the historic business district.

Our objective is to support local businesses and service groups with their goals and projects for enhancing our communities growth and quality of life.

What have we done so far?

Members of the council have worked on the following projects:

  • Secured $315,000 in grant funds to revitalize the village’s downtown business district.
  • Developed the Honeoye Falls-Lima-Mendon Community Calendar system where organizations can post their events.
  • Formed the Lima Business Network for local businesses.
  • Helped in the campaign to bring the GCC Campus to Lima.
  • Created a sponsorship program to cover fees for farmers to the Lima Farmer’s Market.
  • Shifted tourism advertising costs from Town and Village to Council.
  • Organizers of the annual Lima Crossroads Festival, providing free activities to over 300 children each year.

This will be the fifth year the Lima Crossroads Council will be supporting Camp Good Days and Special Times as a part of it’s festival mission. A percentage of festival proceeds will be given to the camp for the good works and services it provides. Camp Good Days has served more than 230 individuals in the Lima area.


Use of Funds

The funds received are used to provide a fun filled day of entertainment to the public at no or little charge. Unlike other surrounding carnivals, Lima does not charge admission for events and activities for children. Our goal is to showcase Lima for the type of community it is – hometown spirit and small town values!

The bulk of the expenses are marketing and equipment rental costs. Professionally provided activities are our hallmark. If any funds are remaining after the Fesitival, they will be used for community projects including Tourism Guide submissions and other Lima promoting publications and activities. A donation is also made to Camp Good Days and other non-profit organizations.
