PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE Over the past 150 years, we as a nation have grown, fought for and prospered into this country we call home. Agriculture was a huge part of this past and still to this day is a vital part of the development and growth of communities a broad. As the saying goes “Farmers Feed Cities”, which can not be more true. We, as an agricultural society, have a mandate to promote and be advocates of agricultural practices to these communities and cities, assisting the public to better understand where their food comes from. Food does not grow among the aisles of the grocery stores, nor do livestock graze the vast concrete jungles, as some may think. In and around Erin we are blessed with rolling hills smothered in fields of golden grains swaying in the breeze and green pastures streaming with new life and grazing livestock. Majestic bank barns which the sun rises and sets over every day, symbolizing the long tradition of the family farm. Family farms are the founding part of our community in which over the years locally grown crops and livestock that have been produced. Great pride was put into every seed that is sown, every animal that was nurtured and every product that was produced to sell. The fair is the one place where local farmers and producers can come to showcase their products and animals. It’s a place where the stage is set for competition of bragging rights and is also a place where the farm can come to life in an urban environment. Allowing people the opportunity to pause and reflect on this timely tradition. My love for agriculture and what it stands for is the very reason I have dedicated my past 22 years to the Agricultural Society. I guess it is safe to say I have made it my tradition, as was my parents and grandparents, to bring a smile to a young boy or girls face when they got to touch a farm animal for the first time. It is the complete awe when they see the sheer size of a draft horse elegantly pulling a wagon in unison in a six horse hitch. Maybe it’s the rush of hearing the turbo of a tractor wound-up and roaring down the track, bringing adults back to childhood dreams. Who can forget the smell of freshly baked dumplings and pies made from recipes handed down from generations ago? There is no greater feeling when you belong to an organization that brings such happiness and treasured moments to those, whom may not otherwise, have these same interactions. Traditions have come and gone just as years have come and gone. Over the past 150 we have celebrated the great tradition we call “Canada”. Let’s keep this tradition alive by coming together to celebrate the long tradition of agriculture at the 167th edition of the Erin Fall Fair. Just as Thanksgiving is a tradition to most, come make the Erin Fall Fair your family tradition. Best Wishes, Dwayne Gregson 2017 EAS President Photos of Agricultural Society President, Ambassadors and Directors courtesy of Pam Breese Photographer.

AMBASSADOR OF THE FAIR’S MESSAGE Welcome to the Erin Fall Fair! My name is Lindsey Patterson, and for the last year I have had the privilege of holding the title Senior Fall Fair Ambassador. This role has opened many doors for me, has boosted my self confidence and has given me many unforgettable experiences. Last year’s fair was a huge success, myself and Junior Ambassador Heidi Wenger had an amazing time meeting local vendors and competitors. The highlight of the weekend for myself was going into the pull sled while the truck pulls were happening and handing out many winning ribbons. Without this program I would not have had the chance to meet the other ambassadors from all the fairs across Ontario. If you are thinking of running for junior or senior Ambassador I would encourage you to try it, the process and people are awesome and it’s an experience you’ll never forget. To all those visiting our fair this year, enjoy the awesome food, great vendors, competitions, rides, family, friends, and fun! Happy Thanksgiving,

Lindsey Patterson

JUNIOR AMBASSADOR’S MESSAGE So far, my time as the Jr. Erin Fall Fair Ambassador has been such a learning experience! Thanksgiving weekend was so much fun. I spent the weekend with the Sr. Ambassador Lindsey Patterson. We handed out awards and ribbons at shows, discovered all the displays in the Ag Awareness tent, enjoyed some fresh baked goodies, and rode on some of the midway rides. Following the Fall Fair weekend, I attended the District 7 meeting with other Ambassadors where we practiced impromptu questions and joined in on Ambassador Workshops. I have the opportunity to attend the 4H Club awards night and hand out ribbons. I now look forward to continue representing the Erin Agricultural Society at other Fairs and socializing with other Ambassadors.

HOMECRAFT PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 167th Erin Fall Fair! We don’t have the RCMP, Rick Mercer or Carnival Eats coming this year but you never know what our board is up to! What we do know is that it is the 150th year of our CANADA! So Canada Let’s Celebrate! The amazing homecraft division have been hard at work to bring you only the best fair that we can offer. “Canada 150, Let’s Celebrate” We chose this theme because all through this year Canada has been celebrating in style. We celebrate our origins, activities, and heritage no matter where you have come from or your beliefs. We are called the “Great Melting Pot of the North” for a reason. The ladies (and gentlemen) of our Homecraft Division have had a wonderful time incorporating this theme into our fair book. I am sure you will see lots of Canada Flags incorporated into cakes (baking), canning (maybe on the labels), fine arts, crafts, sewing, knitting, crocheting, photography, flowers, wood working, quilting, special needs, and my favourite junior arts and crafts. I’m sure that I have missed some but we have so many things to show you. That is only the beginning! Outside, the main board has gone all out for Canada. I can’t wait to see what the Giant Pumpkin committee has in store for us. The Community of Erin has always been there for The Erin Fall Fair. They support us in so many ways, not just in the generous offers of prize money but with active support of many of our activities. Now it is time for you to fill our displays cases, shelves and display boards with your accomplishments. Have a look in this book and let’s showcase your work. I am sure that you can find many ways to show us how wonderful your talents are. Please encourage your children, neighbours, and friend to enter that unforgettable piece that you or they have toiled over. We look forward to meeting with you again or as a new exhibitor. Don’t forget about our Cafe at the back of the building. Those apple dumplings are “to die for”! As always our numbers are all subject to growth/depletion and would welcome any new members with or without new ideas. Come, join and be a part of The Erin Fall Fair. The Little Royal!
