PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 165th edition of the Erin Fall Fair. I wonder if the executive of the first fair in Erin could have ever imagined that their endeavour would grow into the five day event, that it has become now. People from all over the province come out in the blazing heat, torrential rain and sometimes even snow squalls to witness our “Preview to the Royal”. Over the years there have been many changes in the fair and the Erin Agricultural Society and maybe one of the largest, in recent memory, is partnering with H.E.A.D.S. to form the Erin Indoor Recreation Centre allowing the installation of turf and heat in the Exhibits Hall for year round recreational use. This has created some challenges in floor covering and layout of the exhibits but will also provide warmth on the cold Thanksgiving evenings. Of course, some things never change like the fantastic livestock shows including cattle, horses, sheep, goats, poultry and rabbits, the wonderful displays in the AG awareness tent and the equine tent, that is now hosted by Budson’s Feed & Farm. Our Truck, Tractor and Garden Tractor pulls are always a crowd pleaser, not to mention the Demo Derby and Fireworks on Sunday. Robertson’s Amusements are showcasing an amazing new ride this year, as well. The entertainment line up is stacked full all week-end with acts like Marie Bottrell’s tribute to Patsy Cline, The Battle of the Bands on the outdoor stage and lots of children’s entertainment inside and out. We have performing Dogs, a chain saw carver and many more performers all weekend long. I would like to thank our many sponsors in the partnership program, without their support the Fair would not be able to survive, let alone continue to grow the way it has. I send my heart felt thanks to all the Directors, Associate directors, Fair staff, the countless Volunteers and all their families that help put on the fair. If it was not for such a dedicated group, there would not be a fall fair in Erin. The President of the first Erin Fall Fair probably wondered if people would come out to a fair, but I know people will come out, and will have a great time. How could they not? With so much going on it would be a shame to miss the biggest event in the Town of Erin. Thank you, Rob Klein 2015 EAS President Photos of Agricultural Society President, Ambassadors and Directors courtesy of Pam Breese Photographer.

AMBASSADOR OF THE FAIR’S MESSAGE My name is Jordan Pedersen, and I’ve had the pleasure of being the 2014/2015 Erin Fall Fair Ambassador. As the ambassador I attended as many events at the Fall Fair as possible (including an especially muddy demolition derby), the Erin Santa Claus Parade, the Annual District 7 Meeting, and Convention. However, the highlight of the experience though, is the people I have had the opportunity to meet! Our fairboard and volunteers are supportive and dedicated, and the other ambassadors (including our junior ambassador Megan) are friendly and eager. Over the summer I will be attending other fairs, culminating in the 2015 Canadian National Exhibition Ambassador of the Fairs competition. This year has been a year of tremendous growth for me, which I have no doubt will continue until we appoint another ambassador on the Friday of the Fair. I would recommend this experience to anyone, as it’s a good opportunity to practice your interview skills and public speaking, while being rewarded with friendships, and new experiences. I hope you enjoy the 2015 Erin Fall Fair, and I encourage everyone to try or see something new. The Fair has a lot to offer, and truly is a highlight of the best of Erin. Sincerely,
JUNIOR AMBASSADORâ€™S MESSAGE Hi, I am Megan Robart-Morgan, your 2014-2015 Jr. Ambassador. First of all, I would like to thank all of our wonderful volunteers that make our fair possible. As the Jr. Ambassador, I have been able to see behind the scenes and have been able to experience how hard working and wonderful you all truly are. Thank you for making our amazing fair, as amazing as it is. I have had a wonderful time during the past year as I have made so many new friends and met so many new people. I am truly honoured to have this opportunity and I am really going to miss representing Erin at the next fair. I have had many great times through- out this experience, I loved getting to meet all the other Ambassadors in District 7 and getting to know Jordan, our Fair Ambassador, Katie, our runner up Sr. Ambassador and Reachel, our runner up Jr. Ambassador. I hope to come back and be your Fair Ambassador after I have turned 16, as I am only 13 now and will have to wait awhile. It has been and amazing experience that I have truly enjoyed. I would like to thank again all our volunteers especially all the wonderful people on the ambassador committee, as they have made my experience just that much more memorable and one day I would love to join the committee, Thank you!

HOMECRAFT PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
It is hard to believe that another year has passed and we are once again gearing up for the 165th Erin Fall Fair. Early in the year, our Homecraft committees were working diligently to create some new sections in their classes but of course, keeping many of the favourites. Our theme this year is “Tractors and Tailgates” which should be easy to incorporate into our fair as we have no shortage of either of these. You won’t have to look very far to see evidence of our rural roots. The Junior Crafts section should have a record number of entries as every child loves tractors and trucks and there’s lots of opportunity to create your own in this class. This year also celebrates 100 Years of 4-H in Ontario. Be sure to check out our 4-H memorabilia display in the hall and then head out to cattle barn to witness current 4-H members and their project animals in action. (Hopefully, there is not TOO much action!) There are also 4-H club displays throughout the fair showcasing the variety of 4-H projects available.” Eileen has mentioned that we are changing the actual physical location of the 4-H Educational Display so it is not in the Ag Awareness tent. As always, our Homecraft Café will be serving delicious apple dumplings and pies throughout the weekend. A mandatory apple dumpling has become a yearly tradition for many fair goers. If you are new to our fair, you will have to test this for yourself. Many thanks to all our dedicated, hard-working Homecraft members who spend countless hours each year, planning, organizing and creating the wonderful displays in our hall. These same ladies are active members who work at our baking bees, meetings, judging schools and caterings. But it’s not all work as we have built a strong social network where we learn from each other as well as enjoying each other’s company. And there’s always room for new volunteers! So, get ready for the excitement of Erin Fall Fair. Tell your visiting guests to bring their winter coats and mitts just to be prepared. We never know what kind of weather to expect, but that’s part of what makes the memories! Carol Pollock 2015 EAS Homecraft President 92
