The Summerland Fall Fair board of directors held their annual membership drive at Nesters Market on Saturday.

The goal was to renew memberships, recruit new members and promote the upcoming fair, now celebrating its 104th year.

Membership is annual, and cannot be carried over from year to year. Two types of membership were offered for the $2 price, one being a supportive membership, the other being an active membership. Having a supportive role means one would want to see the fair keep going. Having an active role would mean one would be available to work at the fair as a volunteer.

“We try to find a job that suits the volunteer, because if you have a happy volunteer, they will bring more volunteers and they will stay with it,” said past president Connie Davis.

She added that in order to keep the fair going it is necessary to seek out government funding and grants.

“We get equivalent funding for the membership base, so we are trying to build it up.” She also said, “We are trying to get a little more exposure, be a face in the community.”

Another drive will be held at the IGA on Aug. 24.

The Summerland Fall Fair will be held this year on Sept. 14 and 15 at the Summerland Curling Club.
