Welcome to the 2017 Vankleek Hill Fair

Welcome Everyone to the 173rd Edition of the Vankleek Hill Fair!

President’s Message

On behalf of the directors, it gives me great pleasure to welcome everyone to the 173rd edition of the Vankleek Hill Fair.

Our theme this year is Celebrating the Past 150 Years- Embracing the Future. As our great country celebrates its 150th Birthday, our fair has evolved dramatically over the last 173 years, recently embracing new technology and taking to social media.

This year the committee members have prepared a very comprehensive schedule of events assured to keep young, old and everyone in between entertained. Come out and enjoy the many sights, entertainment and sample the great food from our vendors.  Take time to enjoy the exhibits, displays, and demonstrations. The Show Barn Entertainment will host a lineup of bands guaranteed to be crowd pleasers.

We would like to extend special thanks to the individuals, businesses and service groups, who, without their financial support, our fair would not be possible. Also the numerous volunteers, from our annual supporters to our first-time volunteers, there are not enough words to express our sincere appreciation.

I would like to thank each director for all their countless hours preparing for the fair and on behalf of all directors I would like to thank Sandy Young Chaumont for the fantastic job she did for us this past year as our secretary/treasurer. We would like to welcome our new secretary/treasurer, Sharon Graves-Mac Rae to our fair board.

We, the Vankleek Hill Agricultural Society hope you come out and attend our Vankleek Hill Agricultural fair and be prepared to have the time of your life joining us in celebrating Canada’s 150th!

Warmest Regards,

Bev Newton

President
