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!!

A Message From Our Fair Ambassador
Being the 2017-2018 Spencerville Fair Ambassador has already been so amazing and I have accomplished so much. I’ve got so much to look forward to in the coming year.
One of my main goals for my year as ambassador is to get more youth involved. Not just in the fair, but in agriculture and their communities. It is so important to be involved in your youth. You’ll make friends, learn valuable lessons and gain knowledge you wouldn’t have otherwise. Being involved in agriculture and the fair has helped me grow as a person and shape my values that I have today.
My weekend at the fair this year was exhilarating, exciting and exhausting. I met so many new people and was able to talk about everything the fair had to offer. I attended many events over the weekend. Just to name some, handing out ribbons and trophies at various agriculture shows, riding in a six-horse hitch, and announcing tractor pulls and demolition derby cars.
Since the fair, I have attended a few opening ceremonies for other fairs in our district and plowed in the Grenville County plowing match. I have also attended a Spencerville Agricultural Society meeting and a Euchre fundraiser. I attended the Remembrance Day ceremony in Spencerville and was honoured represent the Spencerville Agricultural Society by laying a wreath. I have been busy to say the least but I am enjoying every second of it!
This year will be the 40th anniversary of the Ambassador competition at the Spencerville Fair, with many more years to come! I am so excited to be a part of the anniversary celebrations this year alongside my mom who was a previous fair ambassador also. I hope that in the future the ambassador program continues to help youth develop their leadership skills and be successful in their futures.
I am looking forward to all the opportunities coming in the year ahead and I want to thank everyone who has supported me thus far! I will be heading off to the CNE in August where I will represent Spencerville on a provincial platform at the Ambassador of the Fairs program. I hope to continue to be a role model for youth in our amazing community throughout the year.
Thank you everyone for everything!
