With many thanks for past support, Jennifer Bernard told Fall Fair members on May 27 that Princeton Rodeo Club will host the community Halloween party this year. The change has come about due to the announcement in February by Fall Fair President Dan Kastor that the Fall Fair could not afford the $600 increase in event insurance the Fall Fair would have to spend to host the Halloween party. Princeton Rodeo Club was able to secure added insurance for fireworks for only $100, and was pleased to offer their support for the event.
There was a great deal of discussion at the Fall Fair meeting about who would operate the concession during the fair. Amanda Young, a resident of the South Okanagan, wishes to operate the concession for the Fall Fair. The concession has been operated in the past three years by Jennifer Bernard. The decision as to who will operate the concession will be voted on at the next Fall Fair meeting on June 24, following a presentation by both Bernard and Young.
Volunteers are needed to run the dunk tank and the bingo. Any group wishing to operate either will have the opportunity to raise funds on a cost-sharing basis.
The Youth Ambassador group will be doing face-painting at the Fall Fair.
The Exhibitors Prize List booklet will be prepared in the near future. It will include both the adult and junior fair categories. Pumpkin seeds were given out at the annual Princeton Rodeo and members hope to see many big pumpkins entered into the Biggest Pumpkin category.
Shirley Freding is preparing a giant pumpkin to be included in the Rotary parade this year. Rose and Merv Flegel have donated chicken wire for the structure and Shirley is working on it. Shirley is also preparing the backdrop of a mural for the flower show area of the fair. Local residents will be given an opportunity to add something to the mural during the summer months before the mural is put in place.
The annual Princeton and District Agricultural Fall Fair will take place on Saturday and Sunday, September 6 and 7 of this year.
