Celebrating 100 Years of 4-H in Canada
We are really excited about the 2013 Fair and the involvement of the 4-H. It is one of Canada’s longest-running youth organizations for young people between the ages of 8 and 21. The name represents four personal development areas of focus for the organization: head, heart, hands, and health. Though typically thought of as an agriculturally focused organization as a result of its history, since 1913, 4-H has given Canadian youth opportunities to learn the skills needed to contribute to making this a better world
Everyone’s favourite events are returning to the Fair like the Demolition Derby and Tractor Pull and new ones like calf roping are planned. The Midway will be back with some new attractions and all the animals, agriculture and crafts will be here for your enjoyment. Bring the whole family and join our celebration of agriculture and community.
Volunteers are essential to the success of the Fair and new ones are always welcome. Whether you are interested in working with crafts, flowers, vegetables, livestock, computers or even people, we could use your talents.
150 years in 2014
In 2014 the Fair will be celebrating its 150th Anniversary. Preparations are underway and as new contests and events are finalized, we will be adding them here. How about entering a quilt block for the 150th quilt or joining us to suggest ways to celebrate? Our meetings are posted on the calender below and everyone is very welcome.
