April Pender Post article. 2017 Pender Islands Fall Fair – August 26th

We had a great response from the last Pender Post article, and are looking forward to another great Fall Fair! Good ideas to match the theme of “In Simpler Times”, and some new people to help lighten the load of organizing the fair. Many thanks to Matthew Vasilev who has volunteered to help organize the exhibits conveners. Matthew is already half way through the list, and he is also helping to put together the catalogue for this year. He can be reached at matthewvasilev@gmail.com or at 1-778-792-9114. If you were a convener last year and haven’t heard from Matthew yet give him a call so he knows if you are able to help again, or need help or a replacement (or changes to the catalogue). Thank you. We still have gaps for the organizing committee – entertainment, grounds set up – and still have to confirm volunteers from last year. Please contact Barbara Johnstone Grimmer at firhill@live.ca or 250-222-3817 (cell) or 250-629-3817(day) or 3819 (evenings) if you are interested or want to let us know if you are available to volunteer this year. If you are reading this before March 31st, you are invited to the Farmers’ Institute AGM at the Hall on March 31– potluck at 6 pm, meeting at 7 pm – the Fall Fair will be on the agenda so if you are interested in helping out or volunteering for the organizing committee, please stop by. Everyone is welcome. Updates will be posted on our Facebook Page for the Pender Islands Fall Fair or our website pifi.ca. Information will also be available at the Farmers’ Market
