I’m gonna share a kernel of wisdom with all of you, our members have been working a-maizeingly hard since last year’s fair to bring you an awesome 105th Acton Fall Fair! I know, I know. That intro couldn’t have gotten any cornier. We are very excited to invite you out to some of your favourite fair events like the truck and tractor pull, lawn tractor pull, poultry barn, livestock and horse shows, our home crafts exhibits, our ambassador competitions and, of course, the midway rides. Look for many great vendors from hand-crafted pieces to candy pieces. Our 50/50 draws are back with a twist. Come support a local team/organization as well as your fair. Pop on over to our website (actonfair.ca) to check out all the ways that you can participate in our fair. I would also like to take a moment to extend a heartfelt thank you to our families, our generous sponsors, our community as a whole, and the Town of Halton Hills for their continued support year after year.

MISS ACTON FALL FAIR MESSAGE Becoming Miss Acton has been a dream of mine ever since I moved here. I feel incredibly lucky that I was able to represent my town and the Acton Agricultural Society. Over this past year I have gotten to try new experiences, meet so many incredible people and I have learned so much. The Agricultural Society gave me the wonderful opportunity to get more involved with the town and the community. During my year as Miss Acton, I had the pleasure of attending the OAAS Royal York convention in Toronto where I got to meet fair ambassadors from all across Ontario and make friends that will last a lifetime and also made unforgettable memories. My ambassador experience has been amazing and a dream come true. Because of this experience I feel more confident and comfortable with public speaking, which is something that will stick with me forever and I am so grateful for this. Meeting people from the community and the Agricultural Society has been amazing, everyone is so friendly and helpful. I would like to thank the Acton Agricultural Society for all the support, and guidance and for all of unique opportunities to try new things. The Miss Acton pageant is something I would recommend to anyone who likes to try new things and would like to represent our wonderful town. I would also like to thank the Acton community and the Acton Agricultural Society for all the efforts to make the Acton fall fair an event worth coming back to every year. Thank you to everyone for making this past year a year I will never forget. Acton is truly a wonderful place to be. Sincerely,

Emily Macklem Miss Acton Fall Fair 2017-2018

55TH 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 55th Miss Acton Fall Fair. The event has undergone a lot of major changes in the past 54 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 missactonfallfair@hotmail.com

Woody branches may benefit from splitting cut ends and some need the thick outer layer removed as well. • Some cut flowers (e.g. poppies) benefit from burning the stem ends while others benefit by placing stem ends in boiling water or from chemicals in the water. About 2 tbsp of glycerin in 4L of water, or florists crystals may be beneficial. Details

• •

are also available in flower arranging books. Removal of dust, stains and other foreign objects from blooms and foliage enhances the exhibit. Re-cut stem ends before placing in show containers
