Presidents Message This year’s theme, “Farms – Backyards to Barnyards” – reminds us that it’s that time of year again – to come together as a community - visit with friends old and new – make some new acquaintances – and appreciate our similarities and differences. The Acton Fall Fair team works hard to bring together our urban and rural neighbours to celebrate “the best little fair in Ontario”. As times change, and farms become fewer and fewer in our area, we work to bring you some Agricultural highlights to enjoy. Helping 4H members celebrate their achievement days by showing livestock and working on their projects. Enjoy the petting zoo and Ag Tent where you can see and learn about live animals and how they are still so important in today’s world. Our Homecrafts exhibitors will be showing off their talents in baking, canning, quilting, crafts and so many other areas! The midway will be here again, along with many vendors offering a variety of items to purchase and consume! Sunday will feature our youth pet show as well as an amazing dog agility demonstration – along with all the other events including a new junior division poultry show. We look forward to seeing you Sept 16th thru 18th – come out and enjoy another year of the annual Acton Fall Fair. Our members and volunteers have been working hard to make this our best one yet! For a full list of events and times, please visit our website at www.actonfair.ca – and feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you there,

The judges may rule out any animal or article wrongly classed or which they consider undeserving of a prize. Directors attending judges are to have Rule 5 strictly enforced. The judges have the discretionary power of withholding or reducing prizes if in their opinion, the articles exhibited do not merit them. The judges may also recommend additional awards if they consider them necessary.
The Society will take all reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of the articles on exhibition, but should any article be accidentally injured, lost or stolen, the Society will not be responsible for the value thereof.
Correct addresses must be given on each entry form sent in by an exhibitor. The secretary will mail cheques to the addresses as given on the entry form. Cheques for prize money should be mailed not later than December 31, 2016. Every attempt will be made to have cheques ready for pick up before the end of the fair.

Miss Acton Fall Fair Message This year has been the most amazing experience I ever could have asked for! Not only have I learned so much about Acton and its history, but I have also learned a lot about myself. Being Miss Acton has helped me gain confidence and helped me to understand the importance of community. Through events such as the Santa Claus Parade, Terry Fox Run, and Zumbathon for Lyme Disease I have experienced the wonderful spirit and sense of community that Acton has to offer. Being Miss Acton has also opened many doors for me, and given me the opportunity to attend events I would not have otherwise had the chance. The OAAS convention in Toronto was one of these events and a highlight of my year as Miss Acton. Becoming comfortable in a professional environment and meeting other ambassadors left me feeling more prepared for my future, and more knowledgeable about other small towns in Ontario. I would like to thank everyone in the Acton Agricultural Society for their love, support, and hard work over the last year. I would also like to encourage others to run for Miss Acton, as it is truly a once in a lifetime experience, even just the pageant itself was eye opening and inspirational. This has truly been the best year of my life, thank you Acton. Sincerely,
Alexie Lang - Warner Alexie Lang - Warner Miss Acton Fall Fair 2015-2016

53rd Miss Acton Fall Fair Pageant Contestants must be at least 16 years of age and live in Acton, Limehouse, Ballinafad or Rockwood areas, or attend Acton High School. The stage is set for the crowning of the 53rd Miss Acton Fall Fair. The event has undergone a lot of major changes in the past 52 years, but the idea behind Miss Acton has remained the same: an opportunity to represent Acton and the Acton Agricultural Society, to meet new people and learn about the town and yourself. To clarify some frequently asked questions: • The event is NOT a beauty pageant, but rather a viewing of the contestants on their ability to interact with other people and to speak in front of a group • The judging consists of four separate components: 1. A private 5 minute interview with the judges (contestants talk about themselves and their thoughts on Acton & the fair) 2. A walk across the stage (a biography of each contestant is read – compiled from an outline at the rehearsal) 3. A brief speech is given by each contestant (the speech is not intended to be a test in composition, research or writing skills it is .merely a point at which you will present yourself to the audience and speak about a topic that you have pre-selected – the available topics represent a wide range of areas. Assistance with the writing of the content is available from the committee) 4. An impromptu question is answered on stage (all questions will be distributed on Thursday night at the rehearsal; your only surprise will be which one you select)
Once a Miss Acton is chosen, she will participate in a variety of functions throughout the year. However, attendance at all events is not mandatory. She is expected to attend the fair for the entire weekend, but the number of additional events does lessen as the year progresses. (ie one to two invitations per month are received)
In addition to the pride of representing the Acton Agricultural Society and the town of Acton, this opportunity holds several other benefits:
- Employment opportunities are a regular occurrence. - Numerous contacts are made within other communities - The gift list has totalled in excess of $2000 over the past few years
Being Miss Acton is a wonderful experience that will follow you throughout your entire life. The confidence and self esteem you will build throughout the year will become invaluable as you move toward your future goals. Most of all however, it is a lot of fun!
All contestants who enter will benefit from the experience of speaking in front of a crowd and getting to meet and make new friends and contacts. In addition each contestant is given a gift from one of the local businesses and a weekend pass for the Fall Fair. You can sign up early by contacting Dominique Evans-Zeldin at email@example.com
