Presidents Message “Come and Celebrate Canada’s 150th at the Acton Fall Fair” – what an amazing year for Canada! As Canadians, we are proud of our diversified heritages and backgrounds – many of which are based in agriculture. As the Acton Agricultural Society brings to you the 104th annual Acton Fall Fair – we want you to know that we recognize the importance of the history of agriculture and that’s one of the many reasons our volunteers work so hard to keep our fair alive and thriving. Events like the 4H achievement days, poultry shows, ag awareness tent and tractor pulls – help to bring a little bit of the rural roots of our country into town for a weekend. Homecraft events like baking, needle crafts and quilting can be traced back in families for hundreds of years, albeit now there are some new modern methods on display! Our junior board members are working hard on organizing a decorating contest for residential and business entries – check out the entries and our local community pride. We encourage you to come out with your families to take part in some of the many events happening over the weekend. This year, our pet show is expanding to allow adult entries, our petting zoo and Ag tent are back, the poultry show is moving into our newly renovated shed and of course Albion Amusements midway is back! Your admission into the fair offers hours of entertainment along with the chance to meet up with old friends and share some laughs. Be sure to watch for our volunteers selling 50/50 raffle tickets this year – your chance to win big at the “Best Little Fair in Ontario!”
See you there,
Brian Kuechler Brian Kuechler, President

Miss Acton Fall Fair Message Becoming Miss Acton has been one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. It was not only a childhood dream come true, but it was also a great opportunity to reflect on who I truly am as an individual. I was very proud to be representing my hometown as well as The Acton Agricultural Society at numerous events throughout the year, as the Fair Ambassador. I was able to gain so much knowledge about the history of the Acton Fall Fair, learn the importance of agriculture within our society, and be more engaged within the community. The event that I attended this year which was the most inspiring for me would the OAAS Royal York Convention. I had the opportunity to meet the other ambassadors across Ontario and make many new friendships. Overall, my ambassador experience has been extraordinary. Not only was I able to meet new people, but I was also given a chance to connect with myself and gain confidence in public speaking, as well as becoming more comfortable in conversation with others who I may not be familiar with. I know that the skills I have obtained from this role will be helpful all throughout my life. The role of Miss Acton has given me true inspiration and will always be close to my heart. I’d like to give a huge thank you to the town of Acton and the Acton Agricultural Society for all the support they’ve given me and all their efforts to make our Fall Fair one worth living for. The Miss Acton Pageant is definitely an opportunity that I encourage others to take part in, and I hope others will be inspired by Miss Acton just as much as I am. Thank you for making my childhood dream become a reality. Sincerely,
Meghan Raycraft Miss Acton Fall Fair 2016-2017

54th 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 54th 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
