Ambassador of the Fair 2016

Ambassador of the Fair 2016

Welcome to the Erin Fall Fair!

My name is Lindsey Patterson, and for the last year I have had the privilege of holding the title Senior Fall Fair Ambassador.

This role has opened many doors for me, has boosted my self confidence and has given me many unforgettable experiences. Last year’s fair was a huge success, myself and Junior Ambassador Heidi Wenger had an amazing time meeting local vendors and competitors. The highlight of the weekend for myself was going into the pull sled while the truck pulls were happening and handing out many winning ribbons.

Without this program I would not have had the chance to meet the other ambassadors from all the fairs across Ontario. If you are thinking of running for junior or senior Ambassador I would encourage you to try it, the process and people are awesome and it’s an experience you’ll never forget.

To all those visiting our fair this year, enjoy the awesome food, great vendors, competitions, rides, family, friends, and fun!

Happy Thanksgiving,
Lindsey Patterson

Junior Ambassador 2016

Junior Ambassador 2016

So far, my time as the Jr. Erin Fall Fair Ambassador has been such a learning experience!

Thanksgiving weekend was so much fun. I spent the weekend with the Sr. Ambassador Lindsey Patterson. We handed out awards and ribbons at shows, discovered all the displays in the Ag Awareness tent, enjoyed some fresh baked goodies, and rode on some of the midway rides.

Following the Fall Fair weekend, I attended the District 7 meeting with other Ambassadors where we practiced impromptu questions and joined in on Ambassador Workshops. I have the opportunity to attend the 4H Club awards night and hand out ribbons.

I now look forward to continue representing the Erin Agricultural Society at other Fairs and socializing with other Ambassadors.
