The fair season is almost over in Ontario; many people expect that the fair organizers start their new planning next Spring. The Bayfield Ag Society has had two meetings since August and planning is fully in gear for making contacts for entertainment, events, and items of interest. One new contact will be to investigate the possibility of bringing a quilt car for the parade and having it displayed during the fair. The convertible is fully covered with a custom made quilt.
Planning has also tentatively begun on a second Breakfast on the Farm. Volunteers are always appreciated. They are encouraged to let the Society know of their willingness to support. Send your interest in assisting to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Society is also seeking some community members to fill some of the Director and a few Committee Chair positions. This is an opportunity for people to add a voice and hand to new ventures and carry them out. Does the community want events such as a demolition derby, a baseball competition, a community promotional competition, a remote control road race, a 5 km race, or any number of other events? They can happen with someone committed to being on the Ag Society Board.
The Society has a Wine and Cheese Information Evening planned for November 4 in the Community Centre from 7 to 9 pm. Other beverages will be available. Anyone interested in finding out about the Ag Society can have a relaxing evening and all questions answered. The organization needs dedicated folks who want to ensure the fair remains a vibrant part of the community.
The fair has been a source of entertainment and information for the community for 160 years and is now asking for the community’s support in providing leadership. The Society welcomes everyone to its Information Evening.
