Greetings from the Ambassadors It is with great pleasure that I welcome everyone to this year's Palmerston fair. Our theme is: Around the World in 3 Fair Days. It was truly an honour to represent the Palmerston Agricultural Society as the 2019-2020 Ambassador. I had the privilege to have two Junior Ambassadors, Madison Leitch, and Sophie Glendenning. We were able to participate in parades, AG Awareness Day, and many other events in the community. I had the pleasure of attending the OAAS Convention in Toronto and will be representing the Palmerston Agricultural Society at the CNE Ambassadors of the Fair Competition in late August.   The experience has been amazing and went by quickly. I have been able to challenge myself and expand my comfort zone with public speaking and interacting with people from all over. I have been able to meet many new people and create long-lasting friendships. Throughout this journey, I have learned about the importance of a community. I was able to be around people who strive to improve our community and make it inclusive for everyone!    I would like to thank the Frank Lambier Legion Ladies Auxiliary for sponsoring me at the competition. Good luck to all the contestants at this year’s competition, hope to see everyone at the fair!  Rebecca Dick Palmerston Fair Ambassador 2019-2020

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone. It feels as though the Ambassador Competition was only yesterday. It has been a privilege representing the Agricultural Society as one of the 2019-2020 Junior Ambassadors. I would like to thank the Agricultural Society for all they do for our community and for giving me this opportunity as well as the Palmerston Lions Club for sponsoring me during the Ambassador competition. This past year I got to meet new people and make new friends. I loved spending time with my fellow Ambassadors and being more involved in my community. I had so much fun at the Palmerston fair, the pig races being my favourite, and many other events I attended throughout the year. I guess it’s true what they say “All good things must come to an end.” Wishing this years Ambassador competitors the best of luck. Farewell! Sophie Glendenning Junior Fair Ambassador 2019-2020

I was amazed when they said my name to be the Junior Ambassador. This year was also special as this was the first time that there were Junior co-ambassadors. The year definitely went by quickly, but I still had a bucket-load of fun. I loved meeting other ambassadors at different events with Rebecca and Sophie. The Palmerston Agricultural Society is a wonderful group of people who are kind and helpful. Anywhere that Sophie, Rebecca and I went, we felt welcome. I enjoyed going to different events such as Light up the Park, laying a wreath for Remembrance day, decorating a cake at the Brussels Fair, Judging the sunflower entries for our Fair and many other events that I had the privilege to participate in. I would like to thank the Town of Minto for sponsoring me. I would also like to thank The Palmerston Agricultural Society for providing the Ambassador program and allowing me the opportunity to represent them as a Junior Ambassador. Wishing the best of luck to this year's competitors.

Palmerston Fair History Our roots reach back to 1879 when the former Palmerston Horticultural Society held the town's first fair. In 1897, the Palmerston and North Wallace Agricultural Society was formed to take over the annual fair. Land was purchased for the fairgrounds in 1897, with additions over the years to accommodate a racetrack and grandstand. The grandstand is long gone, but the yellow barn moved onto the property still stands at the entrance to the Palmerston Community Centre Complex. All fair exhibits were displayed in the barn until the group donated land for the arena complex in 1976. Land for the adjacent ball diamonds and soccer fields was also gifted or loaned by the fair organization, now called The Palmerston Agricultural Society. Popular events of past years include a heavy horse show, an annual toy show and the Western Ontario Sheep Dog Trials. Today the Agricultural Society holds a weekend fair in August, a Tractor Pull in July, an elementary school AG Awareness day in September and two events in April: Farmers' Pre-Seeding BBQ and Ladies’ Night.

Farmers’ Pre-Seeding BBQ Launched in 2001, the annual Farmers' Pre-Seeding BBQ has become a tradition within the area's agricultural community. Each year, 500 tickets are sold for the steak dinner and more than 100 local businesses support the BBQ's charity auction. Many of those businesses have supported the BBQ throughout its 20-year history. The event has raised over $300,000 to date. The Farmers' Pre-Seeding BBQ is held mid April. The proceeds support the Palmerston Fair and donate to these local services: Palmerston Hospital Foundation, Rural Women's Support Program, Norwell District Secondary School LEAF Program, 4-H clubs in Wellington and Perth Counties, Minto Fire Department, Palmerston Railway Museum, Palmerston Community Centre, Norgan Theatre and the Agricultural Society's post-secondary scholarship. THANK YOU to the VOLUNTEERS who organize this networking event and to the FARMERS and BUSINESSES who support it. The communal effort is essential for the BBQ's success year after year. Committee: Tony Johnson (519-497-4427), Dale Connell, Don Hartung, Bill Holzworth, Jason Schneider, Keith Sweeney

Ladies’ Night Out The Palmerston Agricultural Society hosts an annual Ladies’ Night Out in early April. This is a fun night of entertainment for more than 250 local ladies. A night of gourmet appetizers, a silent auction and socializing. Ladies’ Night organizers would like to thank those who donated auction items and others who volunteered as servers. The annual Ladies’ Night was started to provide a social event for the women of our community and to help support new fair events for children. All are encouraged to visit the Children's Village at the 2020 Palmerston Fair. Committee: Kathryn Alton, Tiffany Byrd, Darlene Dickieson, Lisa Hager, Crystal Hartung, Janelle Hill, Kelsi McFadzean, Kathy McLaughlin, Angela Schneider, Susan Yungblut

to Kick Off the Fair Taste of Minto - 7:00 pm This is an opportunity for the public to taste locally grown/produced foods. It is also a great way for the producers of our foods to showcase what they produce right here in our community. For 15 years we have been blessed by the participation of our commodity boards and their loyal representatives. Beef, pork, chicken and dairy have been long time supporters. Local entrepreneurs have brought variety to the event with such things as baked goods, chilli, alpaca and maple syrup. This year’s theme is Around the World in 3 Fair Days. Minto has been chosen as home for many families from around the world. We are looking for those recent or not so recent residents to join us in showcasing their cultural foods. Please be brave enough to contact one of our committee to discuss how you can be involved. The Filipino Association has expressed their interest. We want to work with as many groups as possible. Tickets that will be used as currency to taste the samples at each table will be sold the night of the event. Come and join the Palmerston Agricultural Society on Friday August 21 at 7 pm in the Community Centre for the TASTE OF MINTO - 2020.

September 23, 2020

Grade 6 students from Palmerston Public, Minto-Clifford and Maryborough Public Schools attended AG Awareness Day 2019. There were 110 students and 9 stations for them to attend.

The stations were Lamb, Grain Crops, Beef, Dairy, Pork, Honey, Recycling, Chicken and Butter Making. There were live animals for the chicken, lamb, pork and beef to see up close and touch. The Wellington County Museum did butter making demonstrations for each group. Many stations had hands-on activities to help with the learning effort. The Norwell LEAF class attended to help set up the games, make the goody bags, prepare and serve a healthy snack.   The afternoon Farmer Olympics had each team working hard together to best their competitor. There was the Round Bale Roll.  Round bales are not evenly round and the bales did get off track, adding to the challenge to make the best time. There was the Sack Race. Using a feed bag, competitors jumped their way around the mid-point and back to the finish line as quick as possible. There was the Egg and Spoon relay. Each team had only 6 eggs and needed to carry them through the pilons on a spoon without breaking them all.  Not many eggs were harmed in the making of this relay.  There was also the Farmer’s Relay. Students put on their coveralls and rubber boots, loaded a pumpkin into the wheelbarrow, wheeled down and around the pilon, back to the starting line, unloaded the pumpkin, took off their rubber boots and coveralls for the next student. That was a sight to see!   Pumpkins were bruised, coveralls were on backwards, eggs were broken and feed bags destroyed but fun was had by all and a winning team was crowned. Minto-Clifford #2 was the 2019 winner of the AG Awareness Olympics.   Each student was given a goody bag with pencils and erasers as well as information on each of the commodities they had seen during their day.
