Countdown to Fall Fair on August 27th

The Fall Fair is coming up fast, so if you are thinking of entering your apples or new painting, download an entry form from the Fall Fair page of the website, or pick one up from the Farmers' Market or the folder at Pender Realty.  Speaking of the market, there will be a Farmers' Market both outside the gates and inside the fairgrounds, so you can pick up something special to eat or something special to remember the day.  Maybe you want to walk or ride in the parade, or are just starting to get to work decorating that bike or float ...mark your calendar for August 27th.  The livestock producers are planning to showcase the many types of sheep that are raised on our islands, both for wool and meat.  We will have award winning sheep shearer Pieter DeMooy to highlight one of the skills necessary in bringing wool  to the spinners and weavers, who will also be at the Fair.....The traditional beef barbeque will be happening as well.   The beer garden will again be run by Hall volunteers as a fundraiser for the Hall.  Ice cream by Danny Martin's baseball team, soft drinks by Epicentre kids, sushi, salmon burgers and hot dogs and smokies will also be available.  Much more will be happening, music, games and meeting with friends and family.
