Conveners needed for Fall Fair

The Fall Fair is a go for another year and is scheduled for Sept. 14 and 15, but conveners are still needed.

The Fall Fair is a go for another year and is scheduled for Sept. 14 and 15, but conveners are still needed.

Cindy Nelson, president of the fair, said conveners responsible for organizing and setting up display areas for the following categories are still needed; Junior Handicrafts, Junior Writing, Fruit and Recycling.

“We are greatly in need of conveners,” she said.

New to the fair this year will be magician Clinton W. Grey, as well as some new and exciting added children’s attractions including a climbing wall.

Returning from previous years will be the Pioneer Workshop and the B.C. Chicken Association.

Nelson said that they are close to signing an agreement with the Medieval Trading Post to return as well.

“We are always looking for more sponsorship” Nelson said. “Summerland has been wonderful in supporting the Fall Fair.”

Last year there was some question as to whether the fair would continue due to a shortage of board members.

A plea went out to the community and the successful outcome was that at least six new board members were found, making a total of 10.

Nelson, the fair’s new president, said past president Connie Davis has helped her in her new role.

“Connie has been invaluable. I couldn’t imagine running the fair without her. She knows the direction of the fair and how it is run. She keeps us all in line.”

Anyone interested in becoming involved with the fair can contact the Fall Fair Office at 250-483-9178 or by dropping in at the office on Wednesday from 1 to 4 p.m. or by email at
