Our Past, Our Present, Our Future
A Message From Our President
First off, I would like to welcome you all to the 162nd annual Spencerville Fair!
I would like to thank our past president, Randy Norton for his years of service. As I look forward to representing the fair and the Agricultural Society in our community for the next 2 years. It is Our Past, Our Present, and Our Future!
As always there is sure to be something for everyone, young and old, at our fair. Your going to see old friends from near and far, and you just might make some new ones at this years event. While we are all celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday this year, the fair has joined in with the them “Red and white, show your pride!”
I also would like to say in advance a huge THANK YOU to all of our sponsors, including those who give in financial support and those who give in gifts and/or services in any kind. I would also like the thank the very large volunteer group, who help every year put this memorable event on. We could not do it without you all!!
As we, from the Society all pray to the weather Gods for sunshine and great temperatures, we look forward to seeing you all enjoying the fair and making memories for another year.
See you in September. WE ARE EXPECTING YOU!
Your President, Shelley Stephenson 2017 - 2019
A Message From Our Fair Ambassador
As the 2018/2019 Spencerville Fair Ambassador I have already had the pleasure of serving our local agricultural society as our 40th ambassador. So far, I have had bountiful opportunities that I normally wouldn’t get to experience.
As your 40th ambassador of the Spencerville Fair I’d like for our community to get to know me a little bit. My name is Makenna Carmichael and I’m a local 18-year-old student from Shanly, ON, just east of Spencerville. My whole life I have grown up on a cash crop farm with my family, which consists of 6 kids. At times it got crazy and rambunctious in my house growing up. I think that growing up on the farm with all my siblings helped shape my personality and my character. It has made me the outgoing, well-spoken, independent, young women that I am today.
Throughout my school years I have always been involved in the different activities or clubs that have been offered, and as I get older, I have begun to jump on even more of these opportunities.
Something that I will personally strive to work on this year as your local Fair Ambassador will be actively engaging the community. I would like to see all ages of our community not only get involved in our fair but the true roots behind it. For me this is something that I am passionate about and I feel that this is an area that many of our community members aren’t educated on. For all of my life I have been involved with agriculture in some way shape or form! I believe that this has truly helped shape me as an ambassador and what has given me the passion to pursue this role.
During my term as ambassador I would like to partake in as many activities and events as possible. Whether it be attending local 4-H achievement days, fundraising events or visiting other fair board meetings, I would be happy to attend each and every one. Something else that I look forward to doing in my role would be visiting the local schools and showing them the importance, that agriculture has on our communities. I think this will help me reach my goal of educating and engaging our community members.
This year the opportunity I most look forward to would be travelling to Toronto in February and August to prepare and compete in the CNE Ambassadors of The Fairs competition. I am thrilled and honoured to be representing the Spencerville Agricultural Society! I look forward to this opportunity and appreciate all the support I have from my community!
Thank you to everyone for all the support!
Makenna Carmichael, 40th Ambassador of the Spencerville Fair
