Volunteers sorting and bundling evergreen boughs for the 2022 wreath-making fundraiser

We’re looking for people who enjoy being outdoors and can spare a few hours to help out with activities for the annual wreath-making fundraiser.

The volunteer activities will include:

  • cutting down grape vines and/or evergreen boughs
  • making the grapevine bases
  • assembling the grapevine and evergreen wreaths

If anyone has grapevine, cedar, white pine, spruce or juniper trees that can be used for bough cutting, that would also be a great help.  We don’t trim hedges though!

All of this work will be completed between mid-October and mid-November, with dates and times to be announced. Assembly of the wreaths will take place inside the new BAS shed/barn in the Agricultural Park.

Update: our first grapevine cutting session will take place on Tuesday, October 10th. We will meet at 10:00 a.m. at the Agricultural Society office building in the Bayfield Agricultural Park. Volunteers will also learn how to make the grapevine wreath bases.

This is a great opportunity to work with a fun group of people. Anyone interested in helping out is asked to contact info@bayfieldfair.ca
