After the Fair

The Fair is over and with it goes a great memory of a beautiful day. The weather cooperated and it’s true what they say…build it and they will come! The Dragon bouncy castle went up and couldn’t have been a better invitation to one and all who were driving by to stop and see what all the excitement was about. The kids also got a kick out of soaking Fr. Matt when he sat down on the hot seat at the Water Splash game!

We opened at 9 a.m. and didn’t stop until nearly 4 p.m. Carnival games and craft tables were a big hit; the face painting, pumpkin carving, dunk tank, kids rafts, dunk tank and balloon game were in full swing most of the day. But really, who can top a Dragon Bouncy Castle???

The pie contest was won by Myrlene Boken who entered a delicious looking blueberry pie; the chili contest was won by Mike Hogg and Judy Martin.

So we sincerely thank our sponsors: Lefroy Harbour Resort, Monto Reno Marina, John & Susan Kell, Sobeys, Foodland, Bullit Performance Trans & Diff, Stroud Dental and Scissor Effect Hair Salon for their generosity. We also must mention Ann Pool who created wonderful signs to advertise our big event.

We must not forget all the volunteers who helped the evening before getting things set up, those who donated beautiful handmade crafts, those who donated their time and efforts in taking everything back down. And we thank all of YOU who stopped by to help us make our very first Fall Fair such a great success.

Last but not least, we thank our two organizers, Susanne Thompson and Myrlene Boken, who worked tirelessly in putting things together. You ladies rocked!

See you all next year.
