Barry Grant: Barry has been involved with the fair for well over ten years as a competitor, and then in 2012, he took over as the Chairman of the sheep show. Barry has worked very hard to build the show, and it is becoming busier every year. Last year he was approached by the local 4H Sheep club and asked if he could put in a 4H show, which he happily did, and it was a great success. So much so that it has become a regular part of the sheep show. Barry joined the Board of Directors in 2018 and is a very knowledgeable part of the team. We greatly appreciate all the time and effort that Barry puts in and would like to recognize him for his efforts.

Tom La Rue: Tom’s enthusiasm and  contribution to the sport of Truck and Tractor Pulling has been evident for decades. He has been an active member of our Truck and Tractor Pull track team for many years. Through his love of the sport Tom has donated much of his  knowledge, time, equipment and materials to build our track  so that it is one of the best in our area and host to one of the most looked forward to Pulls every year.  Tom also has a very strong attention to safety for both the Pullers and the fans in the stands. The Uxbridge Fair would like to  recognize this quietly working behind the scenes gentleman with the Meritorious Award to show him our appreciation for everything he does.

Kyle Smith: Kyle is a most important part of our track crew team.  He is part of the prep crew that works for days before the fair getting the grounds and track ready  for both The Truck and Tractor Pull on the Friday night and the Demolition Derby on the Saturday night. Often the time involved starts after farm chores are finished and goes until 1 or 2 am the next morning when cleanup is finished and the track is ready for the next event later that day. When a piece of equipment was needed, no problem, Kyle built it!  When help is needed, no problem, Kyle is there.  When tractors or other machinery is needed they appear. In awarding Kyle with an  Honorary Life Membership we would like to show our appreciation for everything he does to make our fair a success!
