It’s hard to adequately describe the way Tim Arpin and his team can transform a space. Tim is a masterful wizard, who can turn the most ordinary place into something truly magical. I have worked with him for almost two decades on countless events at LancasterHistory, from small gatherings to our grand opening gala for a new museum wing, and every time am mesmerized by what he creates. Tim puts his heart and soul into everything he does. His installations are works of art, some that are whimsical, others that are masterpieces of floral beauty. All are done with professionalism, attention to detail, and an inspired aesthetic. Tim makes every event spectacular!

Tim Arpin and the Gilded Lily work magic. The success of Lancaster Conservancy’s Dine on Harvest Moon Dinner & Auction has Tim’s creative talents to thank. Tim shapes truly jaw dropping and inspiring settings for the event bringing the forests, meadows, and rivers the Conservancy protects right into the room with the most exquisitely detailed designs. You keep finding new elements to fall in love with at every angle or second glance. It’s been both a joy and an honor to collaborate with Tim and witness a venue transform under his artful touch.

Tim Arpin is an artist with his landscape and floral design! I’m awed with every new installation I see at Hospice and around our community. But what might be even bigger and more impressive than Tim’s creative installations and events is his heart! For 25 years, he has consistently donated his time, talent, and treasure to Hospice & Community Care.

Whether in support of our Labor Day Auction, the displays he creates at our facilities, or his newest project—an annual Plant Sale here at Hospice, Tim gives 100%. He’s a hands-on philanthropist who works very closely with our staff and volunteers to bring his vision to reality.

He inspires everyone he works with here. His generosity to Hospice has provided comfort and compassion to thousands in our care over the years.
