Our Past, Our Present, Our Future


A Message From Our President

Welcome to the 164th “Worlds Fair” Spencerville Fair of course.

It is my honour, to be the President of the Spencerville Fair for the next two years. It’s always been a part of our life, especially for the past 30 years with planning, fundraising and volunteering.

The fair has changed a lot of the years from when I was a teenage coming to the midway down to the town hall to now, thanks to the board members, sponsors and many, many volunteers.

This year we have lots of new and exciting shows books for the weekend entertainment, so make sure you put September 12th-15th on your calendar.

Can’t wait to see you there!
Julia Roddick, President 2019 - 2020

 

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
