Message From the President

Sow it Grow it Show it

President Susan Yungblut

Greetings! I would like to extend an “earthly” welcome to each of you as we celebrate Sow it, Grow it, Show it, as our theme for the 2024 Palmerston Fair. The fair is a wonderful place to come together to learn and celebrate all that our community has to offer. Providing exhibits, demonstrations and competitions promoting local agriculture. As president, it is an honour to serve with such a wonderful organization. 

This year’s fair will kick off on Wednesday, August 21st with the Ambassador Competition with junior and senior divisions. To the youth in our community, please consider participating in these events. Such a wonderful opportunity to develop your leadership skills, acquire new friends and represent your community! 

Following the parade on Friday night, once again we will be hosting A Taste of Minto in the Community Centre. Many activities, shows and demonstrations are scheduled throughout the weekend, including a Children’s Village with bouncy castles. Please reference this book for the many scheduled events and activities. There truly is something for everyone!

The Palmerston Agricultural Society strives to provide a variety of events, exhibits, and competitions so that there is something for everyone in the community. The Junior Fair Board, which was started this past year on their own initiative, has served as a means of getting our youth more involved with all aspects of the fair. This group of young people meet regularly and are increasing their knowledge about the importance of volunteering their time and having fun, while assuming some leadership roles and decision making activities. 

I would like to thank the Executive, Fair Directors, and Volunteers for their continued enthusiasm, dedication and support to make our events successful each year. Our team is always looking for new members and new ideas. In planting “the seeds,” we welcome and encourage you to come out and join us and help us to Grow it and Show it to our community!

See you at the fair!

Susan Yungblut
